An update for some coming shows

Hi, long time now see! =)

I have been keeping busy, both with my own music but with a lot of other music related stuff… I will fill you in more on this later, but for now I wanna give you an update regarding some coming shows. You can have a look for yourself under the ”Shows” tab. Next show is July 17th at Wij Trädgårdar i Ockelbo .

I will be performing together with the talented Jonas Strömberg who will be playing piano/keys, slide, gutiar and bass (not at the same time though). I have also a show booked for the whole band, July 30th, at arton.78 in Söderhamn, more info to come.

I also have gotten a show booked that I am excited about. It´s at Strömmingsleken in Söderhamn August 23rd and I´ll be playing just before The Poodles, really looking forward to it! =)  More info to come about that too.

Well, I am gonna go rehearse with Jonas now, see ya! =)

Have been a busy month! :)

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, have been a busy month!

I have played live on the radio, done a couple of acoustic solo gigs and first and foremost, I have released my full length album, ‘Long Road To Hell And Back’. The album is available on ”most places” online, search and you shall find. Let me know if you miss it anywhere! =)

The release party went well, I had an awesome time, the guests where very pleased and me and the band did a helluva show! I have posted a short clip from the show on youtube:

First rough video from the release party show.

My webshop is also up and running. Look at the ”shop” tab or go to:

Web shop for Mattias Törnell

I have also added a ”coming shows” tab so you can see where I (alone or with the band) will be performing next.

Well, I think that´s it for now. Have a nice day, see you around! =)

The album is done!

The album is done, yay! =D

I have sent the CD master and the graphic files to the company that is creating it for me. Have ordered some merch and a backdrop as well.

Had a meeting yesterday at the place for the Release Party , will be an awesome day and evening. Things are really coming together now, I am really looking forward to the Release Party and the summer!

Also have gotten a good deal with a couple of hotels in Gävle for the Release Party. I will be sending info on how to get discounted rooms to the people that has bought tickets for the event.

Great news! =)

I am doing the final mixing of the album this week alongside with the final album design. Mastering next week and then sending it for reproduction, feels awesome!
I have set date, time and place for my releaseparty. Have a look at this facebook event if you are interested in the details and getting your tickets:

Some updates!

It´s been a while since I made any updates. I´ve been keeping really busy and have a bunch of news! If you want to have more frequent updates you can follow me on twitter:

Firstly, some news on my album progress: all bass is done and most of the drums/percussion and bass are edited. I have started sending these drafts to a guy that is gonna add some guitars to the album… some electric guitars, slides and so on, both fills and some overall enhancements. So I think I am keeping my time schedule pretty well, hoping to have the album out in mars.

I also had my first ”real gig” as a solo artist a while back. It was a local place that got some last minute cancelations so they contacted me and I thought that I might as well start doing shows… had planned to focus on getting the album done first, but hey, I just can´t turn down a show! ;D

Now I want to get out there more! =D

I am looking over some video material from that show and will post some videos on my youtube asap. Here is the link to my channel for future reference:

I´ve also done a lot of studio work for other people… some recording, editing, mixing and so on… I´ve also released an album on my label, will put up some links to that soon! Have a look at this part of my page for more info about my company:
