In 2008 Johan Hedberg (formerly of Suburban Kids With Biblical Names) made his solo debut with a 5-track EP.
The critically acclaimed single "Grammisgalan" was spinning on the Swedish National Radio and the student radio stations all year.
Since then Johan has made sporadic but highly acclaimed shows, sometimes with a large 10-man band and sometimes by himself with a loop pedal.
Right now Johan Hedberg and the producer Emil Johansson (Parker Lewis) are putting the final touch to the debut album "Paradiset", that will be out 24th of September this year. Last year we could hear the first taste of it with the single "Nackamasterna".
The single "Kickar grus" was released 25th of June and the album "Paradiset" was released 24th of September.
"Here's a heaping spoonful of Swedish indie-pop deliciousness from
Labrador Records' Johan Hedberg." - Popmatters
"Whistlings. 1970s atmosphere. And a sexy awkwardness in Johan
voice. This sounds like no other (but reminds me the Suburban Kids).
You can call it a “feel good hit of the summer”, but with a weird
twist. Bring it to the beach anyway." - Absolut Noise
"Det är en sån där text som verkligen handlar om något, istället för
att bara vara en ursäkt för en melodi, och den utspelar sig som en
idyllisk, melankolisk gammal svensk film." - Ge Hit Musiken
