Biography

The indie-folk troubador Thomas Jonsson was 2008 listed in the British newspaper The Times as one of six acts who have taken the Swedish pop scene onwards since ABBA. Now in 2010, the time has come to release his fourth solo album ‘ARCTIC’ (Playground Music) which is the first one to come out under his brand new musical alias I’m Kingfisher (formerly: Thomas Denver Jonsson). Scandinavian Release Oct 18th, The release was followed by touring with Ed Harcourt in Scandinavia. During spring 2011, Arctic is released in UK, Benelux, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and more. Thomas has all in all made 400+ shows in 19 countries. Including US and UK…

The new cd ‘Arctic’ is a conceptual album about polar expeditions and Arctic flora & fauna. Though it’s being largely inspired by the late 19th-century endevours of Dr. Fridtjof Nansen, this album is at the same time Thomas’ clearly most personal, outgoing and experimental material to date. And despite it’s obsolete theme, this is also an album expressing big amounts of personal and contemporary details and Thomas clearly defines his own part in the songs as he deals with an urge of emerging (Svalbard, Expedition), a missing of what’s been sacrificed or left behind (Smile with your 1000 teeth, Nansen), a fright of changes (Twin Sorrow, A Continent Lost), some delirious sights (Deer Theatre, Peacock Color Song) and sincere hopes for a calm closure (The Whale Hunt, Feline Funeral).
