About me – part I

I started writing the “About me” section for the site and realized that there’s a lot I want to write about, and there are only so many hours a day so I’ll split it into a couple of posts and put what’s most relevant on the about page as I progress.

Ruben, der Wildschwein – new Ztringtroza video

We made a new video for one of the songs from the latest Ztringtroza EP. The song is a german version of the old (“classic”) song “Vildsvinet Ruben”. The video was a lot of fun and party to record. It features the entire band, as well as our pig of a manager, Ruben. And a pizza guy.

Ztringtroza will be playing at the Kalmar Tattoo Fair this friday, make sure you stop by if you have the chance!

Förlovningsblues i A-dur, Ztringtroza video

I’m proud to announce that there’s now a video for the song “Förlovningsblues i A-dur” by my spectacular punk band Ztringtroza. It features footage from both the motorcycle fair in Stockholm earlier this year, and Sweden Rock Festival. It’s a really cool video that really captures the total craziness and joy that is found in this band. Rock on!


Joel in Chicago

Welcome everyone! Some time ago, I decided to get my site up and running, and here it is. The idea is to write about what I’m currently up to, both as a musician/artist/songwriter and as a web developer. Occasionally I’ll take a stroll down memory lane and post some funny tour memories as well.

I honestly don’t know how often I’ll write ’cause I never did this blogging thing for myself before, but I’ll try to update as soon as I can.
