With his first album, THIS IS LIFE, Andreas Aleman proved that he had the voice, the songs and the grooves to make him recognized as one of Sweden’s most soulful artists….”Yeah, Andreas is the new Swedish funky boy!”- Nils Landgren…”Here’s living proof that Swedish artists are still able to create first class westcoast pop. Andreas places himself among artists like Bill Champlin, Kenny Loggins, Bill Cantos and Bobby Caldwell.”- Ola Gränshagen.
IT’S THE JOURNEY will continue to establish Andreas as the preeminent soul singer in Sweden and a world-class performing artist. Andreas has gained a following in Sweden through his sold-out shows at Fasching in Stockholm and is reaching new fans throughout the world. He has been invited to perform with the acclaimed band, Santa Fe & the Fat City Horns at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, and shows are planned for Los Angeles, North Carolina and New York City along with possible tours in Russia, Italy, Spain and Germany.
The album combines traditional soul/R&B/gospel and funk elements, which pays homage to his influences, Ray Charles, Michael McDonald, Michael Ruff and others, while maintaining his own contemporary sound. Andreas has produced, recorded and arranged the entire album and nine of the ten tracks were co-written by him.
Together with the top musicians in Sweden, Andreas has succeeded in making a second album that has all the elements of a breakout international success.
Andreas is not a pre-fabricated artist… this is the real deal…something new in today’s music world…pure old-fashioned talent.
Andreas will have a release concert for his new album on April 27 at Jazzclub Fasching in Stockholm. Get your tickets here!
