Swedish Grammis Unveil 2021 Nominations

Swedish Grammis Unveil 2021 Nominations

The Swedish Grammis Awards are the oldest music awards in Sweden. Equivalent to the GRAMMY Awards in the United States, the Swedish Grammis recognizes and honors the best of the best talent. Swedish artists who live in Sweden are eligible for these awards, as well as artists who live in other countries as long as their music is produced in Sweden and targets a Swedish audience. 

Stockholm-based musician Johanna Andrén, aka JÁNA, started writing and making music at nine years old when she began to learn classical guitar. Fueled by her musical childhood mainly surrounded by jazz and classical music, JÁNA became the first in her family to study music at college. She soon discovered her musical inspirations such as Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, and Frank Ocean. “They had a huge influence on me and I really felt like there was a door opening when I first heard them,” the 23-year-old explains. “I get inspired by all sorts of genres. I guess that’s what comes from listening to such varied music growing up,” she says. JÁNA is focused on creating impactful art through her music. While she wants each song to be a hit, she wants to create a world for the song to live in. 

RYMDEN is a trio composed of Bugge Wesseltoft, Magnus Öström, and Dan Berglund. The band is known for their melancholic and atmospheric songwriting, dramatically charged rhythms, and virtuously played jazz of the highest level. The band’s influences draw on modern jazz, Bach, film, and rock music interwoven together for a one-of-a-kind concert experience. 

Congratulations to all The Orchard’s distributed artists and labels who received a nomination for this year’s Swedish Grammis!
