Hemifrån is an independent A&R, promotion and marketing company, based in the heart of Sweden, specializing in, what they call, “gut music” – The kind of music that you can feel in your gut, no matter what. Hemifran is promoting a lot of singer-songwriter, westcoast-pop, country, AOR and more. Here are featured some of their latest news – it is not all west coast, but dig into it!

Jim Patton & Sherry Brokus – Big Red Gibson

Patton & Brokus’ “Big Red Gibson” represents a return to the rock side of their folk rock origins for the 1st time since 2005, when they put their band Edge City on hiatus. The band on “Big Red Gibson” plays with a Tom Petty and Byrds influence, led by Cordy Lavery’s electric 12 string guitar. More information at Hemifran.

Parallels – Exodus

Parallels is a Swedish progressive rock band that consists of Ulrik Arturén, lead vocals and bass, Anders Börjesson, guitars and vocals, and Torbjörn Carlsson, keyboards and programming. Their musical influences range from the early productions by Genesis and Yes to prog metal orientated bands such as Dream Theater. More information at Hemifran.

Kate McDonnell – Ballad Of A Bad Girl

“Ballad Of A Girl” was recorded at Dreamland Studios in Hurley, New York. Having recorded in the past with esteemed drummer Jerry Marotta, Kate enlisted him and Tony Levin to play electric and electric standup bass. She was lucky enough to find these music giants, formerly of Peter Gabriel’s band, grounded at home due to Covid 19. More information at Hemifran.

Birdfeeter – “Woodstock”

To the 7 songs that Birdfeeder completed comfortably in Woodstock, they tagged on 1 of the original demos, both because it was hard to replicate in the moment and to show the contrast, present with past. So, 8 songs, just shy of 30 minutes. Is “Woodstock” an album, an LP, an EP? “Categorizing things by length is for some other segment of this business, but it’s a record”.
