Artist discography


We up here in the north part of Europe have always got our own touch of melodic rock and pop. And I?m aware that there are a lot of people around the world who enjoy the "typical Swedish melodic poprock-sound".
Stefan Leoson who has been a part of the Swedish AOR-prog band Ariel is now solo and have put out an album with material somewhere between the "typical" sound I just mentioned mixed with AOR flirts, modern singer songwriter pop (a?la Brian Vander Ark) and a touch of bands like Keane, Travis, Jars Of Clay, The Ark and Coldplay.
So I know that a lot of you guys who are frequent visitors here at the melodic net will love this album. I know that because it?s done with a huge professionalism in a genre we love. And what makes it even more impressive is that it is Stefan who?ve written, performed and produced the album all by himself. Stefan sits on a great voice quite close to Stefan Andersson (musically he?s close as well) if you remember his albums.

First out "I Don?t Know Where To Start" is a killer opener and the following three songs are real damn fine melodic minutes of perfection. The tempo goes down in the middle of the album and there are a few tracks that aren?t so interesting, but they?re few, so I have to give this debutalbum an impressive 4 star review. I salute the man with a big bravo and I highly recommend to check him out right away at
It?s a ticket to the melodic heaven.
