Sven Rickström. Born in 1988 in Piteå, Sweden is more of a roots rocker than a singer/songwriter if you ask him.
He started out as a Tinsmith at the age of 14. - And the rest sort of came naturally, he says. What inspired him to start writing music was mainly the Swedish Folkpunk band Euskefeurat as well as a lot of the music that developed from the Swedish labour movement. But also The Late Great Townes Van Zandt .
- Steve Earle is an other artist who made a big impact on me, mainly ’cause he is very hard to misinterpret. - No one will misinterpret my slowly but surely upcoming second album ”Början på slutet”, he says with a laugh.
