Tower Records book 

Posted at 03:17 under MUSIC, ART, JAPAN

My album Passion was recently included in a new book from TOWER RECORDS JAPAN, introducing albums suitable for picnics and weekend trips, on the theme Jazz for Women:



Here's the picnic page with Passion on the right:

The album cover was also included on the index page, so I'm really happy and thankful!

And here is a photo I took earlier at Tower Records Shibuya here in Tokyo, with my friend ROMAN ANDRN's albums just next to mine. It's taken after they rebuilt the whole shop, so I'm happy they still chose to keep all my albums on the shelves, as they aren't keeping most albums in the store any more.

Tower Records, Arigatou Gozaimasu!

Think Of Me music video 

Posted at 12:42 under MUSIC, MOVIES, OTHERS

Just found the music video for my song Think Of Me, from 2003!

I wrote the song especially for the short-film Marcus & Medelhavet by my friend Johan Pettersson, and the song & music video were also made in 2003. Maybe, it was the first song I wrote for my debut album Passion, released in 2004.

I say maybe, because it's 10 years ago, and I don't remember...

Filmed on location in Norrkping, Sweden.

First sunrise of 2013 

Posted at 05:47 under JAPAN, OTHERS

The first sunrise of 2013:

as viewed from eastern Japan as the sun slowly climbed in over the mountain-filled island in the Pacific Ocean.

I feel that this will be a good year!

Happy New Year! 

Posted at 14:21 under THOUGHTS, DEMOCRACY


I wish for 2013 to be a year where we all learn to accept eachother on a true and deep level.

Truly and deeply.

Many of us (not me, but maybe you?) were really worried that the world would end on December 21, because of the Maya indians' calendar.

I just feel, ok, can we go on now? Can we continue with the important things? We're 7 billion (7,000,000,000) people in this world. A child dies every second because of lack of clean water or medicine, and we argue about which day the world will end.

Grow up.

There is a real problem here, because so many of us escape from thinking and caring about the really important things, such as green energy, food for everyone, clean water, education for everyone - including girls in poor countries. It's all connected. We're all connected. Will 2013 be the year when we all understand that?

I hope so.

Here's for a new world.

It starts with me and you.

Happy New Year!
