Album Notes
Anders Westin is a musician and songwriter from Uppsala, Sweden who writes and records his own material. The music is influenced by Americana and roots-country. Having previously made some recordings on his own, Anders is now collaborating with some of Sweden’s most renowned musicians and has as a result created a low key debut album with a careful blend of Nordic melancholy and rusty Americana. An earthy canvas painted with simple brush strokes and gentle colors.

“There is a gentle, relaxed melancholy feel that befits the ambience of the title. There are 9 songs that complete a suite of songs that dovetail into each other. All are written and sung by Westin (with some added harmony vocals) and all are a world away from the frantic pace that a lot of music is delivered in a cluttered world over-filled with music.
Anders Westin did the right thing in getting his music from demo to this admirable destination.”
/Stephen Rapid, Lonesome Highway com

“The songs are marinated in Americana and country music, with a strong acoustic feel. Fiddle, pedalsteel and Hammond organ vary the sound. Anders Westin sings about memories, ‘Grandpa’s Toolbox’, a summer that has faded, the resort Horred in Mark Municipality and that it’s a long way back home. To hear ‘House by the lake’ is like sitting in a cozy camper van and listening to the wind whistling outside the window, down from the mountain.
A musical fire that warms the cold, with a gentle glow that’s smoldering deep inside.”
/Timo Kangas, LIRA Music Magazine, Sweden
