LINEHOUSE- TAKE ONE
Hailing from Sundsvall, Sweden, the duo LINEHOUSE got together in 2005 when NIKLAS DERNEBO (Vocals) and JONAS ÖHLUND (Guitars/Bass/Keys/Programming/Vocals) found out that they had a common desire to write music inspired by the 80’s AOR/ melodic rock. Jonas had been writing songs on his own since 1992 when his band PRIDE went belly up. PRIDE released the ”You’re the only one/ Dreamer in the night” single in 1989 and a posthumous CD in 2008 on the AOR-FM label. Niklas had a dream of singing but hadn’t sung with anybody since his teenage years. For a period of one and a half years Saturday nights were spent in the studio. In the spring of 2007 three songs were sent to Björn Lodin (BALTIMOORE) who took care of mixing and mastering. The songs were released by the boys themselves in August 2007 as a three track EP. The EP was well recieved and it put fuel to the flame. In October 2007 the compilation CD "Munich's Hardest Hits..Melodic rock is back Vol 9." was released. LINEHOUSE was included with the song "Stormrider" together with bands such as XYZ, Harlequin and Fraze Gang.
LINEHOUSE has continued writing and recording songs during 2008 and 2009. The outcome is a ten track CD released by the label BLP Music. The CD shows a wide variation of styles from pure balladry (I need you) to uptempo rock (The Fear of loosing you), catchy pop/ rock (Every little heartbeat) and power balladry (Here for you). There’s more to come. This is only Take one!
