Bio from the poet site written by Unbry, Mysty and Bending:

March 22nd, 1970 - Lund, Southern Sweden: a wonderful baby starts to let the world hear his phenomenal voice: his name is JON ERIK ANDREAS JOHNSON. His mummy is called Marie, his daddy Gigge; they’re both jazz musicians. He also has an older brother called Olof who’s now a lawyer. Since they were children, the Johnson brothers have travelled throughout the world with their parents, always in a tour: “I’ve grown up on the stage, surrounded by instruments, scores and dressing-rooms sometimes not decent. […] I was the group’s mascot and to joke or because I liked it, I always ended up with taking a microphone in my hands, often on daddy’s knees.
