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!

Fia Ekberg – Bangatan

Delicious pop and heartbreaking songs, with elements of blues, spoken word and cabaret dressed in crisp guitars and delicate synth sounds. Fia Ekberg is the musical artist who became a songwriter and bishop, and “Bangatan” is her home. With a noticeable presence and naked texts, she tells her story without safety nets and parachutes. It is everyday realism and great longing that can fall freely together. More information at Hemifran.
