When creating music, Erland believes it often reflects the landscape a musician is surrounded with in some small way, be it rural, urban, real or imagined. Rich in folklore, music, myth and mythology, Orkney has strong Scandinavian influences that are echoed and layered throughout his arrangements.
Previous projects include The Magnetic North, which blends orchestral arrangement, rock, and electronica and his early work as lead to progressive folk rock band Erland and the Carnival.
Erland owns a London recording studio, which is now home to some of the UK’s most acclaimed leftfield producers, artists and mixing engineers.
He has also scored and produced music for TV & Film in the UK, US and Canada.
