Michael Saxell is a Swedish singer-songwriter, composer, lyricist, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He has recently worked with Christoffer Lundquist on Chris’ first solo album. Here are few interesting quotes from the recent interviews Michael gave.
On May 4th Christoffer’s debut album as soloartist “Through The Window” was released by Warner Music Sweden. All music by Christoffer and I’ve written the lyrics. Drummer extraordinaire Niklas Kilenstam and great singer Hanna Ekström add brilliance as well as string ensemble; Charlotta Bergström, Tomas Ebrelius, Johanna Skoglund and Charlotta Weber Sjöholm and horn players; Sven Andersson, Petter Lindgård and Jens Lindgård.
“Green” the first cut off Christoffer’s album is chosen as the theme song for an exciting new project, YMP(Young Masters Programme) involving United Nations, UNESCO and Lunds University etc.
I got an email from Christopher when he was in South Africa as part of the Roxette band. He told me that “Green” is the first track from his debut solo album and it has been chosen as the theme of a worldwide campaign called YMP, Youth Masters Program, developed for UNESCO.
It is a great pleasure to write together with Christoffer. It was like standing in a candy rain. That was the opposite of sitting and writting at the record company office in Nashvill as I have done several times before.
If you still have not purchased Chris’ album, just give a try and listen to this song!
