I had a couple of lovely Sthlm shows at Noels and at Klubb Springfield. Thank you all for your support! I will be back with the whole Grace band in the fall if not earlier. Our show at Fotografiska on August 31st has been rescheduled for October 12th. Sorry for any inconvenience!
We have been working hard on the new album with The Grace and we will start mixing it soon. The album has been recorded in several studios in Stockholm, Turku and Vaasa and we're excited about releasing it in the fall of 2013. It's a cool mixture of Americana, Classic Rock and modern Blues and I'm sure you all will love it :-)
Me and Oskar played some of the new songs in Stockholm. Here's a video from Noels featuring the new tune called Sleeping With Trouble and our live favorite Prohibition Blues...
Jerry and Oskar live at Noels on March 6th
Stay tuned for more news on the upcoming album and new tour dates!

I will be playing two acoustic shows in Stockholm in March with my buddy & Grace guitarist/producer Oskar Nyman. The first one is on March 6th at Noel's and the second show is on March 15th at Klubb Springfield at Pet Sounds Bar källare.

I just returned back to Sthlm from my vacation in Mexico and I thought I'd share a couple of amazing animal photos I took in the land of tequila..
I hope to see you at the shows!

I'm featured in Musikkbloggen today. "To særdeles glitrende julelåter fra vår finske venn Jerry Lindqvist! Anbefales på det sterkeste i førjulstiden..." You can read the article here: www.musikkbloggen.no
Sebastian Bergholm also wrote sweetly about my Every Day is Like a Holiday single.."Lindqvist är min kandidat för årets bästa säsongssingel. Tankarna går till Ryan Adams i den meningen att Lindqvist med oerhört säker hand och väldigt stilmedvetet och smakfullt skrivit två americanadrypande låtar. Gitarrerna ringer, de glider, refrängerna är stora och bra, fraseringarna sitter..." Read the post here: svenska.yle.fi/kultur-och-noje
Now you can also listen to the new Holiday tunes on YouTube. Merry Christmas My Love is accompanied by a photo montage.

Jerry's friend & photographer Lukas Renlund posted a story on his facebook.com/Lukas.Renlund.Photographer page about how our photo shoot for the single design went down in Copenhagen. It was a pretty accurate account of what happened so I also want to share his story with you..
"Not too long ago I had the fine pleasure of welcoming my childhood friend Jerry Lindqvist to Copenhagen for a weekend-long photo shoot. Jerry needed some pics for his upcoming album and X-mas single.
I had chosen the vintage lighting fixtures store Hot Kotyr in Nørrebro as our location. Little did I know, the manager would turn out to be Copenhagen's grumpiest (gentle)man. He simply hated the idea of having us walking around his store taking photos. Bad experiences from similar requests in the past seemed to be the reason of his discomfort. Then finally - with a little patchy small-talk, a few conditions agreed and some good old fashioned bribery (24 cans of beer) he agreed to let us use the place for one hour and "not a minute longer".
It went great! We got all the shots we needed, and more. Here is one of the photographs we made that day. It is the cover of Jerry's next single, Every Day is Like a Holiday.
The song is actually about the loss of a family member and how the Holiday season can be a hard time for anyone who is alone or has recently lost a close one.
With all that said, I hope you'll enjoy the fruits of our collaboration. So long!"
