Jon Magnusson is a songwriter/musician/producer/audio engineer from Stockholm, the picturesque capital of Sweden. The music he writes and plays is often plain folk with a touch of rock and punk influences and an occasional jazzy beat thrown in to keep listeners on their toes. Most of all, it’s his thoughts and feelings put to lyrics and chords that are encouraging people to hear more of his repertoire that’s now being shared with the world- enjoy!
“Ode To A Friend” is a sentimental tribute to a friend who was taken away way too young. At the same time a celebration to life and friendship. It is a strong indie folk tune with a strong melody and a powerful arrangement.
“Your Dreams” is a catchy indie rock tune with strong folk influences that’s just been released to encouraging reviews. Reminiscent of Midnight Oil at their best, this bouncy blaster was written about struggle; be it personal, political or otherwise. It’s a theme we’re all familiar with in some variety and he’s left room for the listener to decide how it applies to them.
“Sång om frihet” is a cover of the amazing Redemption Song by Bob Marley. The lyrics is my own interpretation in Swedish.
