Bio

My name is Stefan Olofsson and I'm a self-taught musician from the cold north of Sweden (slightly below the polar circle). When I grew up it was dark and not much to do most of the time so I found my way through music.

I think there are good elements in most every music. A few favourites I keep coming back to are groups like The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Steely Dan, Yes and a few more. They transformed popular music in totally new directions, the made up new rules. I also draw from classical music and jazz such as Bela Bartok, Maurice Durufle, Bill Evans and Miles Davis.

I am an opposer of the myth "all great music has already been written". I strongly believe that we all have the ability to transcend in whatever we do and that there are infinte possibilities in this universe. I also believe that music, like any art, is communication.

And I'm a sucker for vocal harmonies ...

During my career I've been fortunate to have worked with artists such as guitarist Jeff Richman, bass player Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets, Donald Fagen), singer Jason Scheff (Chicago), film music composer/orchestrator Phil Giffin ("Lethal Weapon", "Die Hard") and 2-time Grammy Award winner Jay Graydon (Al Jarreau, Manhattan Transfer).
