Dan Berglund (2)

Profile:
Swedish singer, guitarist and songwriter, born March 16, 1954 in Helsinki, Finland, from Gothenburg. He has been an active musician since he debuted with a gig for striking dock workers in Gothenburg in May 1974. The following year, his first music album, En järnarbetares visor, was released on the record label Proletärkultur.

In 1979, he sold his guitar, however, he picked up the music again after receiving a new guitar from his friend Axel Falk. The next album, Vildmarken was released in 1987 and is especially noticeable by the reduced political tone. According to Berglund, the album sold poorly even though critics appreciated it. Eleven years later, a compilation album was released and it took until 2007 before he released the next newly produced music album, Såna som vi ....

Some of Berglund's strongest influences are Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Ivar Lo-Johansson, Pablo Neruda, Joyce Carol Oates, Cervantes and Wisława Szymborska. Today he still tours and plays his old songs, with some changes in the lyrics.

Berglund was awarded the Birger Sjöberg Prize in 2009.
