One of Sweden's best kept secrets, the singer-songwriter I'm Kingfisher has returned with his sixth solo album Transit, released April 13 on vinyl, CD and digitally via the newly started Stockholm based label Fading Trails Recordings.
Transit follows to acclaimed records, Arctic and Avian, and on Transit we find I'm Kingfisher at his most stripped down and intimate yet. NPR's All songs Considered said "This record is awesome" and the lead single was picked up by KEXP as their "Song of the day".
Behind the I'm Kingfisher moniker is the Swedish musician Thomas Jonsson, who's been honing his craft since the early 2000s, first recording under his given name before turning into the Kingfisher in 2010, and touring around the world, with over 600 shows under his belt. Transit was initially recorded by Jonsson on his own, recording both vocals and guitar simultaneously in full takes, with long-time producer Carl Edlom, before having some of Sweden's finest musicians adding their touches to it with Christian Kjellvander, Martin Hederos, Helena Arlock and Klabbe Hörngren being among the guests.
"I wanted to give this album time, and time came to be a big part of it. Transit is my sixth solo album and my first truly stripped down one. While I've been collecting the songs for this album I've seen people both depart and arrive. Events and plans that ended and became something else, a feeling and a movement that fascinates me a lot."
