Music For Freedom

"Hi! My name is Anders Eriksson and I am a singer/songwriter from Sweden. I would call my music a mixture of rock, soulful pop and American roots/folk music (or Americana or alt-country). I like to listen to soulful music myself, so that's also a goal for me when I compose and perform my songs.

I have been engaged in the fight for human rights in China since many years. This commitment is reflected in some of my songs. For instance "They Can’t Make Me Waver" is a homage to the Chinese Falun Gong practitioner Liu Chengjun who did many great things to stand up for Falun Gong in China. He died in December 2003 after 21 months of torture. The song "The Chinese Way" tells the story of the suffering and frustration of the Chinese people, but also about a positive development; Chinese citizens are now withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party in a large scale."
