Lasse Stefanz made their commercial recording debut in 1970 with the single "Kära Rut." Several years later the band made its album debut with Vad Tiden Går (1974). While Lasse Stefanz released an album more or less annually throughout the remainder of the 1970s, they didn't break through to mainstream success until 1982 with the hit single "Oh Julie" and the accompanying album of the same name. From this point onward, Lasse Stefanz remained successful, continuing to release new music at a remarkably consistent pace.
In the 2000s, Lasse Stefanz's popularity had risen to such heights that their new full-length releases regularly topped the Swedish albums chart. Such was the case with Vagabond (2007), Rallarsväng (2008), and Truck Stop (2009), all of which were number one hits. Amazingly, the band remained consistently viable during its fifth decade, with nearly every release topping the charts and the 2015 album Whiskey Barrel going gold in Sweden. Following a 2015 Greatest Hits collection, Lasse Stefanz quickly followed up with 2016's Road Trip, once again reaching number one. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
