ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BROKE[N]BLUE from Kolsva, Sweden, is an AOR/Melodic Rock project with members from different bands playing the original music of Lars Abrahamsson.

Lars plays all guitars and keyboards and the lead vocals is shared between Eva Abrahamsson and Peter Gustavsson. Lars and Eva have been playing in bands for a long time and joined the same band for the first time about 20 years ago. Peter is guitarist and leadsinger of coverband SIXPACK. Ulf Vestlund is fulltime bassplayer with top coverband DeSotos and works with leading Swedish artists such as Jennifer Brown and Andreas Johnsson.
In 1999, Lars published some songs on the web, which resulted in a lot of interest from webzines and listeners around the world. After some highscore reviews the band decided to record a fullength cd. Ulf joined the band on bass and drums and the debut album “Northern Light” was recorded between Nov 2000 and May 2001 and released on Maple Leaf Records in June 2001.

The band is recognized by the strong melodies in all songs, where the vocal arrangements are an important part, and the trademark is the mix of male and female vocals. The debut album "Northern Light" was well received on the market and gained a lot of good reviews from all over the world.

In the following years Lars wrote more songs for a 2nd album and in May 2004, Broke[N]Blue was signed to MTM Music, Germany. The new album “The Waiting” was released in July 2005 and got many good reviews all around the world, and Broke[N]Blue will go on fighting to get this music back on the main charts...
Some words from the press:

"If you think Dante Fox, Alyson Avenue, Fighter but better and some hints of T´Bell is your kind of AOR then don´t hesitate to get a copy of this brilliant album. This is a new Swedish AOR sensation..."
(Juha Harjula, Midwestern Skies)

"This is light melodic pop rock at its best. The CD is packed with these catchy AOR tunes and if you're a sucker for Roxette, Heart and the likes you better not miss out on this one! "
(Lennart Hedenström, Northern Light Website)

"The main ingredients you need for a good AOR/Melodic rock album are variety, excitement and originality and with this debut album from Sweden's Broke 'N' Blue we have a superb album that says it all...If you miss Saraya or Heart then you will love Broke 'N' Blue."
(Nicky Baldrian/ Fireworks Magazine)

"...Another parallel to ROXETTE is the fact that BROKE'N'BLUE work with two lead singers... adds a very intersting flavour to the album. All 12 songs on "Northern Light" move on a extremely high level of songwriting and don't show any worth mentioning weak point. .. "Northern Light" is undoubtfully a very good album that makes hunger for more!
(Marco Spaeth/ On the Rocks)

"...now there's the offical debut CD release of the Swedish AOR band BROKE-N-BLUE. 'Northern light' is one of those albums you pick up and hear right from the very start you're listening to something really good. This CD is filled with sensational classy 80s AOR that sounds like SURVIVOR/JOURNEY/TOTO in their AOR heydays, while also comparisons to HEART and WITNESS are notable...What more can I say about this masterpiece! This album should be bought a.s.a.p., because it is a fantastic AOR record, and now we can easily add BROKE-N-BLUE to the never-ending list of sensational AOR acts from Scandinavia. This album is a big must if you enjoyed the recent releases of T'BELL, URBAN TALE, ALYSON AVENUE, BLIND ALLEY…
(Points: 9.0 out of 10) Gabor Kleinbloesem, Strutter Magazine)
