ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MEEK MEN – music from Sweden!

Meek Men is a songwriting collaboration between a therapist and a janitor!

Jonas Lundberg has been a therapist, teacher and singer for many years and his lyrics has been inspired from many interesting therapy sessions. On the record “Dumdedum” you will hear songs about living in a relationship filled with violence, how to be restrained by social phobia, about Syrian refugees with parlous experiences, about young girls with performance anxiety, and about the search for meaning and forgiveness. In the midst of these stories Jonas and Kenneth have their own perspective – simple, slightly overweight middle aged men who has been married to their wife for more than two decades – happily humming songs about being content and thankful. Meek in mind!

The music of Meek Men is a mixture of different musical influences. The core is a kind of folk-pop with a touch of country, singer/songwriter and Irish music. Add to that some unexpected harmonies and urban sounds. Some would call it progressive folk-pop!

Kenneth Holmstrom, who wrote most of the music, is a bassist, guitarist, composer and janitor! He is familiar with all kinds of styles ranging from pop, gospel, rock, jazz and blues to folkmusic. He is one of few who has toured with Sixto Rodriguez, the Detroit based songwriter who was portrayed in the Oscar awarded documentary „Searching for Sugarman“ by Malik Bendjelloul.
