Warmer Than Gold
2023 – present
In 2023 I launched a new platform for acoustic, folk and americana music in Gothenburg. To date I’ve hosted three concerts with internationally acclaimed musicians, and secured funding from Göteborgs Stad and KulturUngdom to ensure artists are paid a fair fee in line with union recommendations. For two of these concerts I also filmed a short live session with the artist. You can see an example below. Further concerts are planned for 2024.

Sandra Sumie Nagano started composing and recording music in an apartment in Gothenburg in 2008. Her songs reflect a personal and musical journey that hangs between Scandinavian and Japanese folk music. Sumie’s critically acclaimed self-titled debut album was recorded in Berlin with Nils Frahm and Dustin O’Halloran as producers and released in 2013 on the Bella Union label. A second album, Lost in Light, was released in 2017 and a third album is due for release later in 2023/24.

Clara Mann makes almost-folk to keep calm in a busy world. She made her striking debut in February 2021 with Consolations (Sad Club Records), and followed this up with a second EP, Stay Open, which features Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear on production duties, and has been described as “a beautiful collection that dresses its plaintive, vulnerable compositions with graceful subtlety and poise”.
