1.Standfast is a two-piece Swedish band, formed in 1997 and comprising singer Suzanne Mosson and guitarist Patrick Turner. The duo are best known for their 2001 single, "Carcrashes".

In 1997, Suzanne Mosson, a back-up singer for Swedish singer Dilba, met Patrick Tucker, then a studio and tour musician, in Stockholm and decided to try their luck as a team. They rented a tiny rehearsal studio, acquired an 8-track recorder and a cheap red plastic organ and started writing and recording.

After a year, the duo decided to take a break. Tucker became a member of the Murlyn Music song-writing team and wrote a few hits such as "Because of You" by 98 Degrees and "Only For You" by Ronan Keating. Meanwhile, Mosson composed a tune that was to become "Shine On", a track on the Standfast album.

Mosson and Tucker wanted to present their songs to a record company in person, but EMI Music refused telling them to send a demo or "forget it". Two days later they called and said they liked "No Longer" and wanted to see them.
