Josef & Erika

Small small small small sounds

The duo Josef and Erika, known for their intimate and fascinating appearances, introduce their second album “Small small small small sounds”. Their first album “Wallpaper stories” from 2005 was warmly received and was appointed one of the top ten jazz albums of 2005 by the Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. Their music is influenced by both singer/songwriter traditions and modern improvised music.
Somewhere between these genres they’ve created music where stories are in focus, framed by minimalistic arrangements including backing vocals and improvised trips. With the new album they’ve made their sound even more distinctive by adding new elements like glockenspiel, harmonium and hand claps. Josef and Erika was formed in Gothenburg. Today they are living and working in Stockholm, touring Sweden and abroad with many different bands. Josef Kallerdahl (double bass, electric bass, vocals) also plays with “MusicMusicMusic”, “New tango Orquesta” and with the “jazz in Sweden-artist” Nils Berg. Erika Alexandersson (Vocals, harmonium, glockenspiel…) toured the world with the indie pop band “Loney, dear” during the spring 2007 and she also plays with her own band “eRika” and with the live electronic impro duo “the Moth” together with the drummer Martin Öhman.
