Emil Jensen is a Swedish singer-songwriter/poet. He sings in a broad southern accent of Swedish (skånska), accompanied by mostly accoustic instruments such as guitar and piano on his two earlier records, and a greater variety of electronic tunes on his latest record ("Orka då", 2006).
His characteristic live shows consists of equal parts stand up comedy, poetry slam - Emil has won the Swedish poetry slam championship twice, and reached the fourth place in the world championship in Rotterdam - and music. The songs are usually simplified versions, allowing Emil to perform them alone, accompanying himself on the piano. On the studio albums, however, he is assisted by Marcus Cato from his former band "Mållgan".
