Johan Örjansson, a 27-year-old songwriter from Falkenberg, Sweden, lives with a great love for music. From early age music has surrounded his person. He once started up as a punk-singer in different constellations during his teen-age revolution.
Later on he developed a great love for storytelling. Someone once wrote that listening to Johan is just like imagining Bruce Springsteen and Nicolai Dunger together, over a bottle of red wine. That tells us a little about his great talent. Johan’s voice and musicality provides us with a mix of wild and spleeny feelings and it doesn’t leave you untouched.
Johan creates melodies that is inspired from the seventies country-pop-rock as well as contemporary modern music.
His first album, Empty Road, was released in February 2007. The album is a result of Johan’s early days in music. The song s where written during a five year long period and was a result of growing up. The album became a great success for Johan and his writing. Reviewers embraced him.
The second album, Gone, gives us a more mature sound. Johan’s song and melody is living out a great musicality. The record is about letting some things go, “I wanted to let go of all inner disappointments and just come to peace with them”.
