Fredrik Kinbom is a Berlin-based Swedish artist who is attracting a steadily growing number of fans through his very personal brand of music, cinematic moods and intimate live shows. Fredrik mainly plays the lap steel slide guitar, but the way he plays it sounds nothing like the hawaiian or country sound most people would associate with the lap steel. He really creates his own sonic universe.
As a songwriter, Fredrik recently collaborated with platinum-selling artist Sarah Blasko on her critically acclaimed album I Awake. As a lap steel player, he has played with acts like award-winning Aboriginal Australian singer Gurrumul and British artists Gemma Ray and Moulettes, on stages like the Barbican Hall in London.
Fredrik Kinbom released his EP “Hedgehogs & Elephants” on Sotones Records. His new album Oil was released by Capstan Records in May 2014 to great critical acclaim.
