When I was 15, I learnt how to play my first chord on a guitar in Stockholm's archipelago. I pressed three fingers in a row on the second fret and slowly strummed the strings. An A-chord went through the air and into my ears. The sound of simple harmony made me feel pure joy that transported me to another world. At the end of that summer my family immigrated to Toronto, Canada where I got my first guitar.

I began writing songs when I was 20 years old. My first song, Mr. Fear, is about the sensation of fear and its effect on our lives. Since then I have written over 60 songs in english and swedish.

1979 in Toronto, I acquired grade 4 harmony and counterpoint at the Toronto Conservatory of Music.

1989-90 I studied electronic music at the Univercity of Victoria in BC, Canada. There I wrote a computer program for Computer Aided Music Composition (CAMC) which composed music by selecting chords and notes within boundaries set by the user.

1990 the Canadian singer Ann Mortefee sang my song Opening my Dream with a children's choir in Russia.

2001 a choir of over 100 children sang my song Stars Shining for the Toronto Olympic Bid.

2013 I won a song contest for Robb Roads School in Comox, BC, Canada.

Through the years, I have performed in restaurants, cafés, pubs, festivals, live on the radio, and on streets in Canada, the US and Europe.

Here on Earth is a collection of 14 original songs about love of all types - lost, found, unfound, flirtatious, and deadly serious.
They were all written with my guitar in various places, a park in Victoria, BC (My Name, Corner of my Eye) on a beach in Florida (Gypsy Queen) or in my apartment I was currently living in (Halleluley, Walking Feet).

Some of them were later arranged with music software. Most of the tracks were recorded in my cabin-studio on Salt Spring Island in 2001/02. The songs with only guitar, voice and harmonica are marked with an asterisk
*.

Nextus is a collection of electronic music composed and recorded with computer software. The first three pieces are the
most recent.
Some of the earlier pieces
were produced when I studied electronic music at the University of Victoria in BC, Canada. There I wrote Computer Aided
Music Composition software, CAMC.

The software would "compose" melodies and and harmonic progressions based upon musical rules that the user defines. Camc #1, Floorteen, Journey to the Ocean and Tunnel were all partially written using this software. They are marked with an asterisk
*.
