Johan Stentorp has worked with many both Swedish and international artists over the years, such as Michael Learns To Rock, Peter Cox from Go West, Esther Hart, Simon Matthew, Charlotte Perrelli, Fatima Rainey, Ronan Keating, The Saints, Magnus Bäcklund and many more.
Earlier on he was one half of the Powerpop-duo The Trampolines and even further back Johan played keyboards in Time Gallery (Produced by legendary producer Keith Olsen for Atlantic).

Alexandra Hamnede works as a Vocal coach and has vast experience of backing up artists both live and as a sessionsinger. She's also worked together with Noel Hogan (from The Cranberries) on his soloproject Monoband. If You've seen the Sex And the City-movie, You've heard Alexandra singing the song "Kissing" which appears in the film, as well on the Soundtrack which made it to the number two on Billboard. It's performed by the ambient-band Bliss, in which Alexandra was a member a couple of years ago.

Some Kind of Havens' music can be described as a mixture of the American singer/songwriter-tradition and the melodious english guitar-pop. Add a little bit of swedish melancholy and a slight touch of country and You might get the picture. "We are influenced by the work of female artists like Lisa Loeb, Aimee Mann and Sheryl Crow, but You'll definitely find traces of bands like Crowded House and Squeeze as well, I'll never let go of those roots, Johan says". "We've been thinking album from day one, trying hard to keep the same feeling the whole way through, we want the songs to connect both musically and lyrically, Alexandra says".

Most of the instruments on the album are played by Johan and backing-vocals sung by Johan and Alexandra. Some additional guitars are played by Johan but behind most of the guitars You'll find Pelle Jernryd (Once The Trampolines' hired gun) and Marcus Jacobson.

Some Kind Of Haven's debut CD "One Dead Dog Away From A Country Song" is now available at Blue Desert Music.

The Swedish guitar player Pelle Holmberg with his band Pelle Holmberg Group from the South of Sweden has just released a great groovy instrumental CD titled "Ghost Ship"! Outstanding bluesy funky slick jazzfusion with a slight touch of rock maybe, very well played. Both in the way of playing and the style it makes me think on similar great famous guitar player like for example Robben Ford, Oz Noy and others. This is the 2nd album of Pelle Holmberg Group, the former album was released in 2011. The new CD is available exclusively at Blue Desert Music! Order it by sending us an email or call us. Read more about Pelle Holmberg Group and the CD here below were also some sound clips are available. Read more about it here below!

The funky Swedish singer/keyboard player/composer Andreas Aleman has released his brand new CD (his 3rd album in all) in Sweden on Saturday December 13th 2014! This time it is a slick groovy Christmas CD with the title "Home For Christmas". 9 original composed songs which he has written together with Brian Hobbs like he use to work with. Our favourite vocalist Mr Michael McDonald also sings duet with Andreas Aleman in the great song "Celebrate The Season" which also includes a great soulful gospel Choir. This track has been played quite often on the Swedish Radio P4 and also on other radio stations! Order the CDn at Blue Desert Music by sending us an email! Read more about the new CD and about the musician Andreas Aleman here below!

The instrumental Swedish group Peter Martinsson Group features guitar player Peter Martinsson and drummer Ulf Becker. These two genlemen has known each other in 42 years since childhood! (That's why the number "42" is written on the cover of their new CD.) In the year 2012 Peter Martinsson Group released their debut CD together: "Guitar State Of Mind" (Grooveyard Records), a cool Heavy guitar based album that lovers of great groovy guitar music took to their hearts, and which also received quite many great record reviews, from for example rock journalist Janne Stark on the guitar magazine Fuzz. (Janne Stark was by the way one of the persons who made the record companyt Grooveyard Records opened their Eyes & ears for this Group which resulted in the record deal for their first CD). Now it's time for their 2nd album "No Grey" which they have released on their own. The title of the record ("No Grey") is some knd of describtion of that it includes many kind of musical styles. Ulf Becker is playing all drums on the CD, while Mr. Peter Martinsson plays except all guitars, even bass, organ and keyboards. It's produced by both these gentlemen together. Even if the debut album from 2012 by PMG was great, so do I think that their new CD "No Grey" is EVEN stronger than their debut CD! Think: Great instrumental guitar oriented music like a perfect mix by jazzfusion, blues, rock & funk delivered of guitar heroes performed by for example artists as for example Jimi Hendrix, Steve Lukather, Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, Scott Henderson and similar guitar players, all backed up by an incredible heavy funky groove on drums! The Music goes in other words straight in Your heart! Listen to short teasers from the album and read more here below.

On February 1st 2014 the group Colorstone from Malmoe released their 2nd album titled "Steam" and this will of course be celebrated with a release party at KB (Kulturbolaget) the very same day!
The Swedish melodic hard rock group Colorstone from Malmoe have has quite many success all over the world.
Their big selling debut album Into The Garden includes 17 tracks plus a bonus-DVD including a documentary plus 2 music videos, and it is released as CD in Sweden, Germany, Japan, Korea, China & Taiwan.
The debut-CD of Colorstone is since quite a long time very much aired at radio stations over the world like for example in Sweden, Germany, England, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, USA, Japan, Korea, Taiwan & China.
The interesting thing in it all where it's been aired on radio stations in different countries, is that there ain't any perticular song that has been chosen from the CD as a single, the different radio stations have instead been choosen different tracks from all of the great tracks of the CD! (Not SO strange by the way - because this is a REALLY great album ALL over! Not any track is weak on it!)
Great hard rock with good harmonies, good vocals and cool guitar riffs! With clear influences from their favorite groups and artists like for example Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, Jimi Hendrix & also in fact maybe some hint of U2 maybe, so it isn't that strange that this musical blended mix is a success!
The group Colorstone was formed by: Johan Dahlstrm - Lead & Backing Vocals (ex Silver Mountain); Fredrik Bergengren - Guitars, Keyboards & Backing Vocals (ex Time Gallery, Mikael Wiehe & Tricky Track); Jonas Sandquist - Bass & Backing Vocals (ex Wasteland); Olle Nilsson - Drums, Percussion & Backing Vocals (ex Tricky Track).
The debut-CD of Colorstone "Into The Garden has also got quite many good reviews and a growing fan base over the world!
This of course something that we at the record store Blue Desert Music want to celebrate in some great way! (Read more about it & listen here below with "clicking here"!)
