Funktastic Players Exclusive Interview


Tell us about the track "Daydreaming" and what gave inspiration for this song?
Daydreaming was written by my production partner Kevin Croom some years ago. I was looking for a tune to complete the “Fire” CD. He called me and told me he had this old tune that could work. At first I didn’t want to do the song because it seemed out of place but I absolutely fell in love with the song. So we decided to re-record the song from scratch and put the Funktastic flare on it.

We love the cover art for daydreaming and definitely loved the concept! Who is the graphic artist for your music?
I am the graphic artist for everything we do. I design all the cover art, produce all the videos and create all promotional materials for our work. Everything you see and hear is done in house.

What type of instruments were used on the track Daydreaming and who played them?
Kevin Croom played all keyboard parts. I programmed the drums and percussion. I arranged the horn section parts. The bass was played by both of us. The lead sax was played by Marcus H Mitchell.

We featured you before, could you tell us some of your recent progress since we last spoke?
Our goal was to expand our coverage, to reach more people and to cultivate new fans. I think we are well on our way of doing that. We’ve been picked up by radio stations, blogs and magazines all over the world and we’re still reaching for more! We’ve also had success with our DJ mixes. These dance mixes allow you to hear our music in a different light.

Are you guys planning on touring this year?
No, but if someone wants to offer us a boatload of money to perform I would consider it.

So tell us about the track "Moody Melody"
Moody Melody is an interesting song in that both Kevin and I had different chord ideas that we blended together to make one song. I really liked how it turned out and is a good example of how we work together. Kevin and I both played keys on this one, I played the bass and programmed the drums and Marcus played sax once again.

Exclusive Interview with Sweden’s own Stonesilk


So tell us where you are from and what's it like in your hometown?


I’m from Sweden, Stockholm. My hometown is probably like any other European town…roads are being rebuilt, new houses are popping up, people wander around looking for the meaning of life…and at the moment covid and the vaccine is on everybody’s lips…
People try to make everyday life go together.
The world is going through climate changes and perhaps the globe will come to an end, but no one cares, it’s far away from here, it won’t happen, science will solve everything…or not…

What are the main genres you perform and what are some of your influences?


I’m into some kind of post grunge rock - at least that is what people are telling me. I think that is because of my voice. But I like that American style and bands like Creed, Stained and Nickelback (oops..Canadian) and Seether (oops…South African). The difference is perhaps that I put my focus on the chorus..if the chorus doesn’t work, you might as well toss the song away..and most of my songs goes down that lane… the trash bin lane.. perhaps one of twenty songs are finished.


So tell us little about your latest project...


That is my solo project “Stonesilk” and the album “On My Own” which refers to my father’s passing away last year. I had to process the grief in some way and it ended up in an album. Besides that I’m lead singer in the band Roof Down (just released an album “Devil’s Machine, genre - grunge) and guitarist in the band Token (working on an album, genre - heavy metal). On my solo project I can do whatever I want. I write the songs, play the guitar, bass, keyboard and do the vocals.

For this album I borrowed Nik Hughes on drums (drummer in Busch) and Magnus Arndtzén (drummer in Iron bird). Tried to do the drums myself but it sounded too much like an amateur haha ..





Are you active on Social Media; can you tell us where we can find you?

I am too busy living..but once in a while I write updates on facebook (…and on If the day had 48 hours I would be everywhere..all the time.


Besides music, what are some of the other interests you have in life?

I like to paint (paintings) and acting ( this year there are two movies (to be released soon) in which I have significant rolls/parts). I also like to fix cars and renovate and expand my house. Guess you could call me a handy man . And I’m obsessed with watching Tv series. Right now I’m watching Orphan Black and Handmaids Tale. 

Is there any musician, graphic designer, or industry professional you look forward to working with in the future?


If Someone could hook me up with Lady Gaga that would be something! I adore her! 

any last remarks?
