Just wanted to send Thanks to a fellow fan for the copy of the Insert information posted below! Thanks Hun!
Welcome to my little fairytale.
Since I was just a kid I have always been dreaming of being a pop-star. I've been performing as long as I can remember. In the early teens I started to play the guitar and piano and soon thereafter I wrote my first song.
From those days I've discovered the beautiful world of music and all the different ways you can express yourself through music. Like on stage, performing in front of a screaming crowd, to communicate with them, to make them feel good, and to feed off their appreciation and energy, is an indescribable unbeatable feeling. Or sitting alone by the piano in the middle of the night writing a song, when everything is quiet and calm and everybody is sleeping. Except for me and my piano. Or to go inside yourself seeking for experiences, questions or answers to the stories you want to share. Or to sit a whole day in the studio just working on the production of a song , with beats, strings, guitars and all kinds of instrumentation and being so caught up in your creativity that you suddenly realize that it's time to go to bed, although it feels like you just had breakfast 5 minutes ago..probably Bran Flakes and milk with bananas.
As you can see, music is my life. A gift I share with so many others, people just like me, people with a burning passion for what they do. People that know that no matter what happens, music will always be a part of their lives. But we all have dreams. To make a record, to share our music with others, to stand on stage, to make people happy, to be appreciated, to be a popstar! I couldn`t give up if I tried. I live and breathe music. And we all know what
happens if we stop breathing. I'm the perfect example of that if you never give up there will always be a chance and like so many others I worked hard.
I had my ups and downs but I never stopped believing. And one day my dream came true. I was suddenly one of these stories that you just hear about. My music ended up in the right hands. I, a little guy from Sweden, one of those
people, one of those guys creating music with big dreams, was going to get my big shot. A once in a lifetime opportunity. No guarantees, but with a major record company and people around me with extreme belief and passion for me and my music. I was going to get my chance to make a career in the USA and the rest of the world!
There are two people that made this happen. Two guys, "the right hands", without whom I would still be dreaming, dreaming about making this album:
Terry Anzaldo, my new-found brother. With a passion and belief for me and my music from the first day that I wish everybody could experience. The kind of guy everybody would like to have on their team and I am fortunate to work with. Not a good guy...but a GREAT guy. Great as in, great manager, great believer, great knowledge, great advisor, great loyalty, great friend, great brother..always there for me, always covering my back when the going gets a little tough. An artist's dream. I will never forget. I'm out of words. I love you my brother. Good Guy
Entertainment with twin brothers Terry and Anthony Anzaldo. I've known you for a year now and I can't imagine that a better home for an artist exists. I wouldn't leave this home for all the money in the world. You made it happen, I love you guys!!! Also tons of love to your wonderful Anzaldo
Michael Steele, KIIS FM Los Angeles, Found my first single, "We Live", fell in love with it, took a chance and started to play it before I had a record-deal in the US. You opened the doors my friend. The love and support
you have showed me from that day is indescribable. Michael is one of the few persons in powerful positions that got to where he is because of his dedication to music and still uses that dedication prior to politics in the music industry. I owe you everything my friend, I will never forget. Crazy love to you, Bridget and your wonderful family.
Greatest love to my beautiful family, who has always supported me and my music throughout the years. From early Christmas carols and talent competitions to TV-shows and tours: My mother Anita, my father Bo, My sisters Cecilia and Ann-ki, my little niece Noa and my brother Anders with
family. I love youuuuuuuuu!!
Biggest love to my closest friends Ronny, Ola, Tobias G., Charley, Terry, Klas and all my other friends. The best thing about close friends is that you know they will always be there no matter time or distance.
Sweetest love to Jessica Olérs for inspiration. You're a big part of this album and you are definitely "one in a million....", lilla snuva.
