Biography

Azure Blue is the new solo project from Tobias Isaksson.

Tobias is a talented songwriter and a colorful profile on the Swedish pop scene. His old bands Irene and Laurel Music attracted worldwide recognition, documented from The Allmusic Guide to the blogosphere, but this is a brand new start. With Azure Blue, Tobias has surpassed all of his previous work. The whole process has been like watching a baby dolphin being born.

The name is a paraphrase of Dennis Wilson’s ‘Pacific Ocean Blue’. Tobias says that ‘it’s Wilson’s honest look with the epic beard and the ocean blue mood itself that has inspired me. Along with other male storytellers like Earnest Hemingway, Klas Östergren and Grant McLennan. I wanted to make a mature AOR record but ended up flirting with new wave and new romantic as well.’

With the producer and instrumentalist Midnight Ruler, Tobias has created pure pop gold. A New Gold Dream 2010/2011/2012. Timeless yet modern. It’s honest, pure and wise like Paul Auster’s The Red Notebook. It makes us laugh and cry and pick up a novel.

‘The Catcher in the Rye’ is the first single from the upcoming album Rule Of Thirds.
