Heavily keyboard dominated and volatile in classic rock style DEGREED show strong harmonies and stylistic vocals by Robin Ericsson in the vein of LOVERBOY and EUROPE. These guys should hit the long ball quickly. - Brian Rademacher -

"Strutterzine, Holland"

It's not a question if they are signed soon... the question is which label will sign this superb band this year! - Points: 8.9 out of 10 - Gabor


Still working on that hot first release.



degreed were founded during 2005 at the Conservatory of Music in Stockholm by Mats Ericsson, Robin Ericsson and Daniel Johansson. Mikael Jansson and Jesper Adefelt joined the other three and the formation was complete. With the same musical interest and the same taste of music degreed started writing music with the result of a hard/melodic/alternative musical mix of five peoples minds and feelings.

During 2006 they participated in Emergenza, and won the Swedish/Norwegian/Finish finals, which resulted in that degreed represented these three countries in the world finals in Rothenburg, Germany.
8000 bands participated in the competition but only 21 of these 8000 came to the world finals. degreed finished at the 10:th place but won a couple individual prices such as 2nd best drummer, best arrangement, 2nd best guitarist, etc.

Jurgen Klier noticed degreed at the Emergenza finals and liked what he saw and heared so he brought them to the annual Music Fair in Frankfurt in March 2007. Juergen..s thought were that degreed would play to promote the Swedish legendary guitar brand Hagström, but also to promote the band in general.
degreed played for four days during the Music Fair and during that time the band got noticed by thousands of new people from all over the world and sold a lot of demos as well as they got sponsored by Hagström and T-Rex.

Robin participated in the Swedish Idol during the fall of 2008 and took the Swedish people by storm and gained a lot of respect and credibility among the young as well as the older viewers. He ended up at the sixth place and got himself and degreed a load of fans that voted and followed him through Idol and are now following degreed.
During the fall of 2008 and the spring/summer 2009 degreed recorded their first full length CD with the producer/songwriter Erik Lidbom (Masterplan, Paulo Meneguzzi etc) that they will release during the spring of 2010.
