Born 1968 outside Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast. Parents of Russian and Polish origin. Started taking trumpet classes in public music school at the age of 10, playing in various youth orchestras throughout the school years. This gradually gave way to less formal musical experiments as synthesizers started to become accessible. During and after the mid-teen years came the first attempts at forming bands and recording music with younger brother among others. Started singing for lack of other volunteers. Demos and some scattered gigs amounting to nothing substantial.

1989 saw the formation of what eventually evolved into the band Anywhen. As various members came and left over the following years, a core crystallized with Thomas Feiner on vocals, Mikael Andersson Tigerström on bass, Kalle Thorslund drums, and Jan Sandahl guitar. The band gave some few rare concerts and put out three full length albums: “As We Know It” in 1993 on Gothenburg label “Roligan”. “Anywhen” in 1996 on Roligan and German label Clearspot 1997, and “The Opiates” in 2001 on Clearspot.

While the first record contained a kind of airy, skewed pop, the second record, produced by drummer and percussionist Michael Blair (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello etc) put out much more aggressive energy - music perhaps best described as power pop, or rock even.

The release of the self-produced “The Opiates” was a venture into more brooding moods and melancholic soundscapes, and the band more or less dissolved itself in the process.

    New track available on Bandcamp for streaming & purchase: ”Bested Bones”. A collaboration between Feiner and longtime friend Ulf Jansson. What started out as a piano piece by Jansson, gradually evolved into a full-scale production with Feiner’s vocals on top. Other contributors include Robbie Wilson (Autumn Chorus) & Fyfe Dangerfield (Guillemots) on backing vocals, Ulf Dernevik on guitar and renowned producer Björn Olsson… whistling.

    Весь день слушаю Yonderhead. Просто нет слов. Давно не слушал такой красивой музыки. Кажется можно жить этой песней вечно.

    Also I'm sorry about the not-so-music-related tags.. I know some people really care about "right" tagging (as a genre etc.). I only used tags in and for my personal music library and wasn't aware they'll appear publicly at the artist's profile..

    This album means so much to me! The other three songs are really great too! Even though these few songs never ever get boring or anything I wish there were some more.. In the biography on his webpage it says that he's working on his first solo album. I just can't wait for that, but would, in fact, wait long, if they are just similarly beautiful and lyrical.. Has anybody heard some news on that (or any other) project of him?
