About Crossfade:
Crossfade
started as a project when guitarist Lars Hallbäck and keyboardist Richard Stenström, started writing songs together in 1999 in Skövde, Sweden. 6 months later they were introduced to singer Göran Edman, through a mutual friend, and the three of them wrote the songs to be recorded on the album “White on Blue”.

The recording took a very long time since they decided to re-record all the backgrounds after they had teamed up with drummer Per Lindvall and his brother the bass player Sven Lindvall. The groove they introduced to the music was so inspiring that we recorded everything from the beginning. 
The fans of Toto, David Foster, Sting, Jay Graydon, Pages, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, Don Henley, Chicago and Mr Mister will hopefully find their appetite satisfied here.

After that, they spent a lot of time just recording the preproduction vocals and lyricist Eva Olson took on the job of writing the lyrics. Eventually the final recording started. They spent a lot of time recording Göran Edman’s vocal arrangements as well as everything else, as You can hear on the album “White on Blue”. They contacted percussionist Pablo Cepeda, who did the conga/bongo tracks.  Nina Inhammar recorded some background vocals and the horn section did their bit.
The horns being: Leif Lindvall trumpet, Hans Dyvik trumpet, Urban Wiborg trombone and last but not least Wojtek Goral on saxophone. Wojtek Goral also did the sax solo on “Flying”.
CROSSFADE stands for TRANSITION. Transition through all the inspiration and heritage we carry and have gathered through the years. You can hear influences from the, 60´s, 70´s, 80´s up till modern days transform into the sound of CROSSFADE.
Of course they lean toward the music one might call West Coast/AOR but we have tried to take it a bit further. You can hear vocal arrangement sounds from the 60´s as well as the 70´s, 80´s and with a production that transforms it into the 21 century. They tried to bring a mix of songs that crossfades/transforms into something new and fresh and not like a remix of something previously done.
 
 
The great saga about Crossfade continues…
But let us just hope that it won’t take another 7 years until NEXT time!

Order Crossfade's double-disc “Secret Love” right here & right now at Blue Desert Music with sending us an email.

First-order-price: SEK 219:- (exclusive shipping & handling if it shall be sent).

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"!)
