Post Fun news today...... And utterly sad news also..... :(
I got a phone call a couple of weeks ago from this girl I used to play with back in the mid/late 90´s. Have not heard from her since then actually so I was abit surprised when I heard her voice. She took a break, raised a kid and now wants to get back into music again. She came by the studio a couple of days later. She wants to work together again and she has just released a new album. I said Yes since I´ve always liked her personality and odd music. Got another call from her just now. She´s been asked to open up for a very established Swedish artist at a concert here in Stockholm in May. "Lets do it just you and me. You can play the sword shaped instrument with lots of strings on it......" So Stick and Vox. The problem is that the kind of music she does is kind of experimental/electronic.... I´ll have to scratch my head for awhile. Hopefully I´ll come up with something worth listening to. Transforming synths, programmed drums etc into the Stick..... I have one month to do it. The gig is on May 21. Wish me luck. :o :lol:

You gotta love a challenge! That sounds like fun Jan. Interesting style of music and vox, I enjoyed the video. I'm sure you'll enjoy the gig!

Sorry to say but the day did not turn out so great after all. Got the very sad news that a dear friend and fellow singer/dancer I´ve perfored with alot earlier passed away today at age 39. Aleah Stanbridge. Dancer, singer, composer. Very talented girl.





The first clip is from a tv gig we did 10 years ago and the second clip is from an album with the same artist. She is the girl dancing with fire and singing backing vox. I play bass here.



Her solo here. I just have one thing to say. FUCK cancer! The planet lost one fantastic and kind soul today. :cry:

Wow, that is really tragic... The only positive is that you had the opportunity to reconnect just before her passing.

Seems for real... :cry: :cry: :cry:

She was a very talented singer who collaborated with a lot of musicians from Sweden I highly respect. I was looking for some recordings soon to be release with her project Trees of Eternity. What a loss.

I didn't know you knew her, Jan. I remember we discussed about Krister Linder a while back but didn't realize you know a lot of swede musicians I listen to day after day. :(

I´ve played with both Krister and Aleah. Both I and her are on Kristers album "Songs from the silent years" and we played live together as well. Met her last time half a year ago and had been in contact with her every now and then. Knew she was sick but thought things had improved so this caught me by surprise. Saw people posting hearts on her FB wall earlier today so figured that something had gone terribly wrong. Contacted Krister and he told me she had been rushed to hospital unconscious during the day and as I and Krister was chatting we learned that she had just passed away minutes earlier. A friend that was with her at the hospital texted Krister. Just too young. 39 is just way too young...... She was talented, friendly and kind. Such a sweetheart. This day did not end as I wanted. :cry:
