North Nowhere



Mates of Mine is a vibrant, up-and-coming acoustic group formed by 3 childhood friends and rounded out with a more recent addition. The band includes Peter (vocals, guitar) and Simon (bass), mates since age six when Peter asked Simon to be his friend, plus lifetime friend Oskar (vocals, guitar) and final member Henrik (drums, percussion).

Born and raised in the small Swedish town of Umea, there's a carefree sincerity to their sound that seems to reflect their roots. Even their debut album pays deliberate homage to their hometown in its name, 'North of Nowhere'. Mixing laid back guitar sounds with rich vocals, harmonies, and a variety of percussion, their debut album and enthusiastic gigging schedule have seen them become local celebrities at home. After numerous successes, including radio plays both in Sweden and further afield, they made the decision to broaden their horizons and throw themselves completely into their music. March 2009 takes them to the UK, and the next step in their journey.

By opening themselves to new experiences and ways of sharing their music with fans, they are looking forward to continuing their busy schedule in England with regular shows, house gigs, and line plays (the latter two of which are currently being pioneered in the UK). With the same humour, can-do attitude and community spirit that has drawn in fans and made their live performances sparkle, they look forward to forging ahead and making their mark on the music industry.
