Fashion week in Stockholm!

Image
Thursday work and fun!ūüĎÜIt is Stockholm Fashion Week and we were invited to an event "Strike a pose & rock on @Fashion Night" at the topfloor of the chic bar Vau De Ville in the city centre. Smarting (www.smarting.nu) was arranging the event that started with a photo session on the red carpet outside the venue. We dressed in black with red details and blond loose curls tonight.



Tasted great sparkling drinks, snacks and were introduced to fashionistas and designers of gorgeous tunics and jewellery from Ewa Mari Johansson and Märta Larsson. LG was also showing their unique Styler to steam your clothes gently and effective!

Outside the event Fashion week gave us some great music from Nova Miller and we tried ecologic products from Under your skin. Met some very interesting people and are looking forward to possible collaborations through the network of Smarting that we had the pleasure of joining tonight! The network is connecting people and brands in a smart way! So nice to …

Official song at Trasdockans dag to support against child abuse

Image
Release the fear! To raise a voice for children being exposed to abuse and violence the yearly manifestation Trasdockans dag (kidstoo) arranged by ATSUB (Amanda Kullenberg) together with Erwik Communciation took place in Stockholm at Enzo's, Hornhuset this Saturday. We had the honour to take part last year singing with our child choir Rising Star and this year we also did a cooperation to write the official song "Fearless" which was released earlier this year with the artists Sebastian and Klara, hitting more and more streams every day which is awesome. To spread a message with a song for charity and at the same time bring some hope for the exposed is something we feel is very important.
The event was held at the cool restaurant Enzo's www.hornhuset.seand we had such a fun experience performing live in our colorful costumes during the show with Rising Star, Sebastian and Klara and Zara & Jessica. Speeches and debates with politicians were on the menu as well a…

Birthday party gig in Stockholm with ABBA, Schlager and 70's disco!

Image
On one of the last warm Summer days in Stockholm we were invited to entertain at an awesome 60th birthday party gig with 86 guests! The party event was at the exciting place Kastellet in the central of Stockholm which is an old state memorial building from 1935. Since 1660 the Swedish "örlog" flag is blowing there.

Check out our vlog here: 

After a long dinner where the guests did alot of speaches and singalong they were led upstairs to the party room and we hosted with 3 shows of ABBA, Schlager and 70's disco in different costumes and wigs. We got a great response and had alot of support on the stage by singing and dancing guests and the birthday girl herself to ABBA and disco covers! One of the ladies related to the birthday girl got so inspired that she wanted to have her own singing career! We always enjoy to interact with the audience to give more than a regular show as artists and this time it was obvious that people wanted to join us. One guy even put on the afro wi…

Finalists in Malta Junior Eurovision

Image
Amazing news to have been selected among the 16 finalists to Junior Eurovision Malta with our song "Back to my freedom", written and produced together with lyricist Bruce Robert Francis Smith and producer Rickard Bonde Truumeel!

Keep your fingers crossed for us and the talented 14-year-old Thea Aquilina in the contest on September 8th! There has been a lot of work behind the scenes, we submitted three songs and worked quickly to finish everything in a few weeks in July. Last year was a tough one for us when we worked with songs and videos to reach different selections that just didn't work out at all, so this was one of those very satisfying moments as songwriters/producers working for Eurovision every day!

The song Back to my freedom has an important message about bullying that many of us can relate to including Thea and ourselves. We can't wait to share Back to my freedom with you, but in the meantime, check out our Youtube playlist with our previous JESC songs from …

Holidays in Gothenburg, Helsingborg, Copenhagen, Mölle, Nyköping

Great summer holiday memories in Gothenburg, Helsingborg, Copenhagen, Mölle and Nyköping to look back on in November.

With such great weather a Summer in Sweden was the obivious choice this year. It started with some swimming and sunbathing and camping by the sea in Nyköping where we were lucky to borrow a brand new camper from our parents. Next stop was Gothenburg to Liseberg and Universum as well as a trip by car to the beautiful town Helsingborg by the sea in the south of Sweden where we also watched the view from the tip of Mölle before we went further to the city pulse in Copenhagen and the modern museum Lousiana.
