Musician, songwriter, producer
Musician & Singer-songwriter
Welcome to my homepage. If you are looking for a professional musician to perform at your event, wedding, concert venue, restaurant/pub or similar, then you´ve found the right place. Below you´ll find a short introduction, or you can just browse among videos, music, about me, or jump straight ahead to bookings.
I am a guitarist, singer, troubadour, songwriter, producer and sound engineer. Yep, I do many different things and can offer musical services in many fields. I´ve worked as a professional musician since 2003. I spent the first 10 years in Ireland, in many different bands and various genres; Singer/songwriter, americana, bluegrass, jazz, classical, blues, country, kletzmer and folk music from around the world. In 2013 I returned to Sweden with a diverse repertoire of many styles.
The last couple of years I´ve performed mainly as a solo act. First and foremost my philosophy is to perform music I really like myself. Then I can really play from the heart and it´s that genuine feeling I like to get across when I perform. I can tailor my performance to an array of audiences and I have a varied repertoire of Swedish songs, American songs, jazz standards and old goodies from the likes of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Neil Young.
I also write, perform and record my own material. To get a good idea of what i sound like, please check out my videos.
Sounds like...?..Peter Åkerström
During my years as professional musician in Ireland, I developed as a guitarist and vocalist. I got my inspiration from guitar heroes such as Doc Watson, Chet Atkins, Andrés Segovia, Django Reinhardt, Tommy Emmanuel, Tony Rice and my musician friends I´ve gotten to know through the years. Learning in this way has left me with my own way of playing. I like to call it fingerpicking-bluesy-folky-bluegrassy-classical style.
Another area I specialise in is the composition of music, in many different genres. For those of you who like instrumental music, done in a more classical style, please follow this link.
