Björn Olsson, composer, guitarist and music producer from Gothenburg, Sweden. Founder and guitarist for rock bands Union Carbide Productions and The Soundtrack of Our Lives (though he left the latter while recording their second album.)

In 1998 he was a temporary member of The Bear Quartet, but moved on to concentrate on solo work, instrumental music which is an eclectic mix of Swedish folk, Bo Hansson and Ennio Morricone. The songs often have titles and music inspired by the city of Gothenburg and the Bohuslän archipelago (eg Tjörn).

Olsson has produced a number of Swedish artists, including Franke, Håkan Hellström, Bad Cash Quartet, Easy and Mattias Alkberg BD.

    My discovery of this artist, Björn Olsson album The Crayfish, today on Spotify app. Instrumental sound is wonderful! Very engaging for the ears, very chill and informed sounding. I will check out these other projects and bands listed in the biography.

    Låter jättebra på det rigtiga Göteborgssättet, det lite jag kan höra. Kanske du kommer ihåg meg från Skywriter. Danskjävlarne som fyllde up studion i Kungssten den vintarn. hälsninger till Mattias om du nånsin ser dette. Jakob
