"5 stars!"

It's a very beautiful and convincing second album from the swedes. Every song balances between the heavenly hopeful and the tragic and doomed. Peder's deep and elegant vocals speak to your emotions. The single War is a masterpiece but also Love and will and Mornings past is worth mentioning in that same breath.

- Gaffa magazine

SHOOTING JOHN balances on the verge between americana and indie flavored
folk and pop/rock. On their recently recorded studio album, HAPPINESS +/-,
the six piece Swedish act delivers melodies of sadness and joy with honesty
and intensity, favoring the mellowness of the minor keys but not without a
hint of hope. The dark, melancholic voice of singer Peder Gravlund contrasts
beautifully to the frail singing of Helena Arlock, all framed by well
balanced arrangements and melodies as well as thoughtful lyrics.
Their 2005 release, MOODSWINGS, brought great critical response, tv- and
radio appearances as well as tour dates in Germany, England and Sweden.
