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..

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
