“Psalms for Sinners EP” Four songs ranging from acoustic jazz to sentimental pop and punk influenced indie rock. With “Psalms for Sinners” Jon Magnusson takes a large leap in his music career blending together his best influences.
“Amazing EP. It eases you in with a beautiful, almost medieval opener and then “Ode To A Friend” is an outstanding and very touching tribute that almost had me in tears. “Psalm For Sinners” is probably the weakest track for me and what I would class as a “B” side however this no way detracts from the stunning release. “Your Dreams” is up there with the best indie pop music and it will be stuck in your head all day long. The production is really quite special and you can hear that a lot of thought and love has gone into the creation of this EP. Being of Swedish tongue Jon’s voice also makes this unmistakably him and it adds another element that seems to work really well. Give it a listen. You won’t be disappointed.” Juxta John – UK artist and founder of Atom Collector Records.
“Sång om frihet” is a cover of the amazing Redemption Song by Bob Marley. The lyrics is the artists own interpretation in Swedish.
