The Project:

Crossfade started as a project when we, guitarist Lars Hallbäck and keyboardist Richard Stenström, started writing songs together in 1999. We were later introduced to singer Göran Edman, through a mutual friend, and the three of us wrote the songs to be recorded on the album White on Blue.

The recording took a very long time since we decided to re-record all the backgrounds after they had teamed up with drummer Per Lindvall and his brother the bass player Sven Lindvall. The groove they introduced to the music was so inspiring that we recorded everything from the beginning.

After that, we spent a lot of time just recording the preproduction vocals and lyricist Eva Olson took on the job of writing the lyrics.

Eventually the final recording started. We spent a lot of time recording Görans vocal arrangements as well as everything else, as you can hear on the album, White on Blue.

We contacted percussionist Pablo Cepeda, who did the conga/bongo tracks.

Nina Inhammar recorded some background vocals and the horn section did their bit.

The horns being: Leif Lindvall trumpet, Hans Dyvik trumpet, Urban Wiborg trombone and last but not least Wojtek Goral on saxophone. Wojtek also did the sax solo on Flying.

The Music:

CROSSFADE stands for TRANSITION. Transition through all the inspiration and heritage we carry and have gathered through the years. You can hear influences from the, 60´s, 70´s, 80´s up till modern days transform into the sound of CROSSFADE.

Of course we lean toward the music one might call West Coast/AOR but we have tried to take it a bit further. You can hear vocal arrangement sounds from the 60´s as well as the 70´s, 80´s and with a production that transforms it into the 21 century. We tried to bring a mix of songs that crossfades/transforms into something new and fresh and not like a remix of something previously done.

The fans of Toto, Foster, Sting, Graydon, Pages, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan, Don Henley and Mr Mister will hopefully find their appetite satisfied here.
