2017 has been a totally amazing year and I already written a lot about other people and platforms that has meant a lot for me in my development. But now I actually like to summarize what I have accomplished music-wise so far this year. 2017-01-05 "Sång om frihet" Waiting for my studio recorded songs to [...]
One of my favorite bands of all time is the Swedish electronic duo "The Tough Alliance" and in the electronic genre I would say that they are my absolute favorites. I always nursed a dream of making some music that's at least reminiscing of their sound and now my dream came true, and I didn't [...]
One of my goals the last years was to get some of my songs remixed by someone would make it in to something totally different. And now that dream has come true and I couldn't be more proud. It really feels like a giant mile stone. My friend TC Newman from Finland took a like [...]
Half a year of writing, arranging, recording, mixing (not necessarily in that order) has finally led up to this. My new EP, Psalms for Sinners is finally up and running on all the usual services and of course here on my home page. Psalms for Sinners by Jon Magnusson It all started in October 2016 [...]
As told in an earlier post I have one big passion when it comes to sports. I do like sports in general and especially read about sports in the newspaper. But when it comes to Leksands IF it becomes really serious. For you who unfamiliar with Leksands IF it's a hockey team from my home [...]
The second of four new songs that will form my EP, releasing in spring 2017. This song is a new recording of a song I made a few years ago. It's about one of my best friends who past away in cancer at the age of 15 and at the same time it's a celebration [...]
My new single “Your dreams”. It’s a song about struggle, might it be personal, relational or political. That’s up for the listener to decide. Even though I like writing different kind of music I would label this song “A catchy modern pop-tune with folk influences and rooted in late 70’s punk-scene”.
With a new music computer and a lot of new instruments and plug-ins I am working on a new EP and I'm planning to release it in February. But i couldn't wait that long so I sat down and interpreted one of the greatest songs of all time, namely Redemption song by Bob Marley. So here you go. Enjoy!
With some new equipment, skills and plug-ins I decided it was about time to record some new stuff. I have around 8-10 songs to be recorded in both Swedish and English. But it will take a while until it's all done. So as for now enjoy my first all-instrumental recording. Visa från Utanmyra. A fine [...]
In a flash of creativity and thanks to some new software instruments I recorded three songs in a few weeks time. I chose to put them all together as an EP with "Dina drömmar" as the title song. 1. Dina Drömmar An song that I wrote and recorded some years ago, but as my recording [...]
