Biography

With her dark and mysterious sounding voice, Frida Snell made her debut with the single, ‘Lucky Day’. The song became a hit, spending not fewer than 16 weeks in the Swedish charts. During the same time, Frida was contracted to do a full international launch.

Frida writes, performs and produces her own music. In addition to her singing, Frida has also played bass, drums, guitar and keyboard in a variety of bands based in her hometown of Kiruna.

It was in Kiruna, 700 meters underground in a mine, when Stockholm Records first made contact with Frida’s father after hearing her demo tape a couple of years ago. It seemed as if someone had phoned a wrong number until it became clear that it really was the record company seeking Frida. However, a firm contact was later to be established between her and the record company.

-Yes it was quite comical really, I had put my fathers mobile number down on the demo tape. So when the record company A&R, Anders Johansson called, Dad explained that he was at work down in the mine and for a few moments Anders though he was joking but everything turned out well in the end, says Frida.

After this, Frida was to leave her home-town of Kiruna in order to move to Stockholm.

On the question of her musical influences, Frida answers:
- I have always had a strong liking for female singer/songwriters like Julie Miller and Tori Amos, but I listen even more to the Beastie Boys.

    Seriously, does anybody know why she only recorded that one album? She's obviously got tons of talent and an enchanting voice on top of that, I would love to hear more from her.

    Men snälla, sluta spela 'I Know There's Something Going On'. Det är ABBA-Frida, inte Frida Snell. *suck*
