Rival Sons – Interview With Scott Holiday And Rig-Rundown

Not a guitar expert myself, but I recently watched this interview of Scott Holiday, and fell in love with music all over again. So much good advice in it, specially for young and ambitious people who want to work in the music industry. I am always personally interested in listening to this kind of professional talk because I am one of these determined little hearts in life, that love and appreciate good music more than anything. If you agree with me and you are interested in watching it, take a look below. What I believe was the best part in it, was :

Do it because you love it, don’t do it because you think you are going to get real famous, everyone loves music, there is always going to be a new way. If you do it because you love it, then when you have a little bit of success, your priorities will be in order and you will be really grateful to those fans. Honest music, because it’s done with love, it translates, that’s what speaks to people’s hearts, to our ears, to make us feel good and make us want to invest in something.”  

Have a great weekend my friends with lots of music, have fun and take care! 🙂

 

Keep It Up All Night

Hey dear friends! Today is obviously a good release day since I noticed that a lot of my favorite artists have released new material. Let’s start off with Reckless Love and their new single “Keep it up all night” . I am listening to it right now and have been listening to it since this morning actually. I believe that September is a good month to release such a song that actually brings along a lot of summer vibes.

A lot of people need an extra push this time of the year, a new motivation to keep going as fall starts and winter is on its way and with a song like this I believe we get the memo. I personally believe that it is a really positive and pleasant song to put on your playlist and listen to every time you find the chance. I love the way that it starts, so dynamically, and then as soon as it reaches the chorus you feel the beat changing again. I also like the fact that it combines a kind of electronic, beat -ish mood into it, which leaves you with a more pop and not so hard impression, but still has the Reckless Love element in it.

First single of the new album, let’s hope that there is going to be a video as well and it is going to be released soon! In the meantime, here is a couple of useful links if you want to check out or buy the song. 🙂

I would love to hear your opinion about it, specially if you are a Reckless fan! Feel free to comment and share your thoughts. 🙂

International Marketing

Hey dear friends! I went by my new school the other day, I will be continuing my studies with international marketing as a major in Mälardalens Högskola in Västerås for the next couple of years. Along with that and regarding the blog, I will keep blogging about my favorite artists, just as I have been doing for quite some time now and will also try to find chances to do maybe a couple of interviews with interesting bands that may come along. Summer is almost over as much as I don’t want to admit it, but this time around the year is the time when you need to work hard in order to shine again next summer.

I hope you guys have a fresh new start in your schools or work (after the summer break) as well and be motivated to keep going this fall and winter.

Have a great day my friends with lots of music! ❤

A Taste Of Gothenburg

Wanted to upload some pictures from downtown Gothenburg since it was our first time there. I think it is a really beautiful and sweet city and the people I have met there were really kind. Till the next time I am around, here is what I got. 🙂

Rival Sons – Trädgårn Gothenburg 2015.08.13

I have been all the way to Gothenburg and back to Stockholm in almost twenty four hours and have slept probably around two. Why ? To see and shoot the Sons of course. I am sitting on the train right now heading back home and I cannot help it but recall all the amazing moments from last night’s show. I have been waiting for it almost all summer. I feel deep love for them mostly because they are so damn good in what they do. I remembered from the last time that I shot them in Stockholm, that the opening track was “Electric man” and I was hoping that they would not change that this time. And thank God they didn’t. As soon as I took my place in front of the scene and in front of Scott Holiday, I was patiently waiting for the moment that the lights would go down and I will see them hitting the stage, grabbing their instruments and letting the music do the rest.
That moment didn’t take long to come and all of a sudden Scott Holiday was right in front of me, grabbing his beautiful guitar and starting playing like there is no tomorrow. The melody of “Electric man” started to fill up the atmosphere and I was so drown away by the sound of it that I almost forgot that I was actually there for a reason and that was of course to shoot.

I am a 90’s kid and that means that I don’t really have basic knowledge about this kind of music, but I can sure recognize when an artist does their job right and when their music is made with passion and respect. Just like the first time when I saw them last summer in Stockholm, opening for Aerosmith.

I read a while back another artist’s interview saying ” support your favorite bands or they will die” . This couple of days I was all about that. I can sure tell that they have all of my support now and in the many more years to come. And I hope and wish that someday I will get to know them in person as well so that I can tell them that myself.

Ps : If I didn’t make it that obvious by the pics that follow, I like Scott Holiday and was at his side of the stage throughout the whole time I was shooting. 🙂 I hope you guys like my pics and feel free to share them and comment in the comment section below. 🙂

Have a great weekend my friends wherever you are with lots of music! ❤

Electric Summer

Hey my dear friends! I wanted to post something that I am really looking forward to, and this is of course the Rival Sons show in a couple of weeks, in Gothenburg here in Sweden. 😀 I have already bought our tickets and applied for a photo pass. I really hope I can get one just like I did the last time they were here. Have you seen them live? Or do you like them as much as I do? Here is what I got from last winter when they played at Munchenbryggeriet here in Stockholm.

If you have seen them live, feel free to write your impressions and your feelings from their show in the comment section, I would love to read them. 🙂

Have a great day my friends, with lots of music! ❤

George Ezra Live @ Berns Stockholm

Hey friends! Tonight I had the pleasure to shoot George Ezra and his band at their performance here in Stockholm. I have to say that I truly believe that George Ezra is one of the most talented artists of our generation. I saw him first time last winter on MTV with his song “Listen to the man” and I instantly fell in love with his voice. I love it so much when an artist is so true and humble up on stage and they just pick up their guitar and make you happy with their songs. That is what happened to me tonight as well. I also have to say that I am really glad in general because artists like him nowadays show that there is still talent in the music industry and not everything has to do with looks and fancy performances. If he is coming to your town, grab a ticket and I can assure you, you are going to have a great time at his show 🙂

Until then, feel free to take a look on what I captured with my camera tonight!

Have a great night / day my friends with lots of music! 🙂 ❤

Ps : If you ever see me shooting in any show around here, don’t be a stranger and come say hey! 😀
