Jan Åkesson on SoundBetter

I have recently worked with Nashville based producer Peter Collins (producer - Bon Jovi, Quuensryche, Rush, Nancy Griffiths, Brian Setzer, etc.) on tracks for an upcoming release by Billboard dance artist Consuelo Costin. Songwriting Sunstorm Songwriting Issa Producing Infinite & Divine Producing StoneLake. Producing S.A.Y.

In 1984 he got to know singer Peter Grundström while playing lead guitar in the band “Ravage”. Grundström was lead singer of the band “Whitelight” which Åkesson became a member of in the fall of the same year. In 1987, Åkesson left Whitelight and wanted to pursue a career and a sound that was more guitar-oriented and harder. He went on to form new bands: “Why Not”, “Perfect Stranger” and “Dr. Blue”, playing many very successful gigs and making several acclaimed recordings. In 1994 Jan decided to step back from live performance to concentrate on writing and producing songs in his new studio on the emerging digital recording platforms that would soon come to dominate the music industry. The studio he created in 2005, was called “UMP”, which is an abbreviation of: “Unlimited Music Production”. After the split from Whitelight, who later changed their name to “Kee Avenue”, singer Peter Grundström was enrolled to join “StoneLake”. Åkesson and Grundström became a successful songwriting team and released several albums and singles on different record labels. In 2008 they were invited to write all the music for the project “Solna” and shared the credits with well known artists from the industry such as Ralf Sc
