Major of Roses is the artist name of singer and songwriter Magnus Rosell, based in Stockholm, Sweden. His sound is a unique combination of pop melodies and rock grit, echoing the work of artists as diverse as David Bowie, The Beatles, St. Vincent, and Massive Attack to mention but a few. All is tied together by a deep voice reminding of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits.
Major of Roses is a one man creation, from song writing to production, the cover designs and the videos. All is made at home, true do-it-yourself, and represents the culmination of many years of spare time passion. Each song is a statement in itself and has not been finished until it found its form, and does not always adhere to a standard pop song structure. Although many of the songs are superficially simple the production is mostly very detailed.
