Originally hailing from Stockholm, Camilla now resides in Ludvika, a small village in Dalarna, where she has drawn inspiration for her upcoming EP, “Bloodline”. This solo debut marks a new chapter in her career as a songwriter, musician, and artist.
“Bloodline” comprises four songs that delve into the intricacies of life while celebrating its inherent beauty. The forthcoming EP, “Bloodline”, will be released via the Swedish label Novoton, with the lead single “Blonde Redhead” set to launch on April 21st.
Here is an interview with It’s For Us from 1999, featuring Camilla Karlsson and Jon Gredmark, the creative forces behind Stockholm’s It’s For Us. The band released their first album, “Come With Me,” in 2017 through Luxury Records. Their most recent work, “Stay,” dates back to 2019 and was released via Novoton, which will now also release her solo material.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
