Raymond & Maria

Profile:
The group formed in 2002 with Johan, Staffan, Per, Camilla, and lead vocalist Maria, naming themselves after an infamous swingers club in Stockholm.
Johan Kindblom had played with the guitarist Staffan in several different constellations before founding the band.
They met Maria, then it turned out she had a sister who sang too.
Their first drummer Mårten Tromm joined a little later.

The first single "Ingen Vill Veta Var Du Köpt Din Tröja" became a surprise summer hit, shooting to the top of the Swedish charts and holding that position for several weeks.
Their first album, Vi Ska Bara Leva Klart, was released August 18, 2004. The group's second album, Hur Mycket Jag än Tar Finns Alltid Lite Kvar, followed two years later.

At this time, the line-up consisted of vocalists Maria (Viktoria) Fredriksson and Camilla Fredriksson, guitarists Staffan Lindfors and Per Blomqvist, the drummer Olle and Johan Kindblom on bass and songwriting. Johan Kindblom is also a member of the scriptwriter collective Tre Vänner who did commercials for Svensson, Svensson, Cleo and Ica.

In their final line-up, they were five members (Olle no longer in the band). Their last concert was at Fotografiska in Stockholm on July 6, 2013.
