I’m a fan of many Swedish acts and one album that I regularly play, is
“Look What I’ve Started” (1995) from singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Peo Pettersson.
As a performer, Peo came to the surface as frontman of the band Axia,
with whom he released a 4-track EP (1984) and a self-titled album (1986).
Peo left Axia in 1989 to front the Christian band Leviticus,
but he showed his real talent for the first time on the above-mentioned “Look What I’ve Started”,
on which he was supported by many well-known Swedish session musicians.
good news is that he’s now back
with a brand-new one, called “Better Not Forget”.
After all these years, it’s a pleasure to listen to the man again.
The 10 songs on offer show a versatile artist with a mix of
pop-rock songs in which I hear many influences, even from the
bluesrock corner of a band like ZZ Top. Listen to the opening track,
“All Worth It Now” or “House Of Blue Lights”, for proof of that.
Pure melodic hard rock can be heard in a track “Strange Sun”,
but the bulk of the material is of a poppier nature.
