Biography

Alot can happen in ten years. Just ask Mattias Edlund.

He signed his first recording contract in 1998, as singer in the band The Motorhomes. Now - two albums, seven difficult years, a couple of “proper” jobs and one family later – he is back again, this time with a solo album recorded under the name JOHN ME.

This wasn’t really a path he had considered, having felt that he was pretty much finished with music. But the curse, or gift, of creating music could not be escaped. Melodies flowed through his daily life. An ordinary 9 to 5 job with a paycheck at the end of the month wasn’t enough for him, not if he was to feel contented. So by night Mattias went into his studio and emptied the melodies stored up inside of him.

- I had to get these songs out, and the only time I had to work with my music was during the night. When all the day’s events were over and everyone else had gone to bed… While everyone else was on pause, I had hours where I could catch up. I was staying up later and later each night, sometimes not sleeping at all. I was thinking “If I don’t stay up tonight…. which song might I miss out on writing?”.

Al Pacino’s chance came with The Godfather. John Travolta experienced it after Pulp Fiction, and now it is Mattias’ turn: Just when you think it’s over, you get dragged back into the game again.
