Sometimes the language barrier is a good thing. I love these Swedish bands that write me in simple English saying “I wrote these songs this summer. Maybe you’ll like them.” The humbleness is appealing and the sentiment refreshing in these brash times. Johan from Peace In Or Time sent me such an email and a link to his site (which is under construction).
I like all the songs he’s got up there. They all inevitably start with the same little bit of dead air and a few errant microphone setup sounds. Then Johan kicks in with his acoustic guitar and sweet, smooth voice. If you’re a label this singer/songwriter might be someone you’d be interested in. Here’s a couple of songs from Peace In Our Time.
