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 (https://www.facebook.com/STONESILK-16981079174)…and on stonesilk.se. 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?

Nope..

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
