Paul Bäcklin has a violent spirit and a peaceful mind. The moonlight farmer and veteran songwriter divides his life between the rainy harbor city of Gothenburg, and his small farm in a well-hidden valley between two forests in the salt-stained part of the dark Nordics called Bohuslän.
With just two remarkable solo albums, the artist and songwriter has cemented himself as a rigid structure in the americana-infused folk rock scene of Scandinavia.
Keen on the emotional significance of the well-written word, not unlike the lyrical giants of the world, Bäcklin presents both vivid landscapes and kitchen sink-esque scenery for your imagination and interpretations to play out in.
Through his unique melodic identity, he makes you feel completely safe, whilst challenging and provoking you in his world of melancholy, humor and raw power.
