Johannes was born in Gothenburg in 1991. Growing up in a musical home, he started playing the piano at an early age, and took lessons from the age of 5. This was where his passion for gospel music was bred. Soon he got a Yamaha keyboard and started programming and recording his own songs, as well as a children’s musical.

 

Johannes was part of several gospel projects in his hometown Alingsås during his teenage years. Then he moved to Stockholm to study jazz piano, and later church organ. During his time at the music college he was leading yearly gospel projects, as well as playing with gospel choirs in different churches around Stockholm. He was also managing his Classical Jazz project, with arrangements of classical pieces for jazz trio, septett and up to 17 piece orchestra.

 

Today he works full time a church musician in Sollentuna, Stockholm, where he directs gospel choirs, leads worship and plays the piano and organ. Besides that, he freelances as a performing and recording keyboardist within different styles in Stockholm and London. His main style is gospel and jazz, but he draws influences from classical as well as electronic music.
