Thor Rutgersson

It’s good to take a break. Swedish Singer/Songwriter (lyrics in English) released his first full-length album in 2003. Now, as 2015 become 2016, it’s about time for the follow-up.

In truth, other things got in the way. Thor Rutgersson is also a writer and music became more and more of a hobby. Even so, Thor continued writing songs and a few times a year the old gang got back together for some recording sessions.

The old CD, ”…I Know But I’m Still Hoping For A Happy Ending” is a blend of Singer/songwriter-style pop and various influences, ranging from rock to funk.

The new CD, ”Alternative Mainstream” is a more focused affair, with straight-up pop as the main focus. There’s a bit of folk and country in there as well.

Thor Rutgersson writes music that combine melody-focused pop with quirky lyrics. Like the old master, Harry Nilsson, there’s always a quirky smile in the mix, even when things get dark. The latest album is greatly influenced by artists like Ben Folds, Ben Kweller and Aimee Mann.

For Alternative Mainstream, Thor worked with Swedish artist and producer .annelie.
