On May 10 my first live show for 2014 took place at Twang SESSION in Stockholm. Twang is a famous guitar shop with a nice café for coffee shop (window) gigs. Alex Fridunger was supporting me with some piano and backing vocals.
My search for a new fellow musician began after ending the collaboration with singer-songwriter Astor Wolfe with a gig at the Stockholm Pride Festival 2013.
Alex Fridunger is a singer, a songwriter and a pianist who has been writing songs for and fronting several bands, the latest being Ekrano from Stockholm.
In this collaboration Alex Fridunger will be supporting me on stage and bring some piano goodness and extra vocals to the mix.
Our first public performance will be at the Transgender Day of Remembrance at RFSL Stockholm on November 20. Find more info and join the Facebook Event
I played two gigs at Turteatern in Stockholm and we made this video from the first show.
