A long journey
JLT has been one of the hardest working band’s in Sweden for years.
They’ve played every single rock venue worthy of the name in the country, if there’s a stage & electric power is available, they’ve most likely been there!
A long journey has taken place since John at age thirteen started travelling the Swedish countryside of Dalecarlia with his guitar performing raw and pure Rockabilly. When teaming up with Joakim Dunker on drums & Martin Engström on upright bass it all fell into place and the JLT sound started to develop. This powerhouse-trio has taken Sweden by storm.
Four albums top 5 on the albumchart
Since 2006 they have released 7 albums, the last 4 albums have all entered the Swedish albumchart at top 5 & their fanbase is increasing week by week.
They are never afraid to experiment with whatever influences they come across.
As a result JLT has created an outstanding signature sound of their own.
Per Gessle & Marti Brom
Their latest album “DiG iT” was released in May 2014 and entered the Swedish albumchart at #5, all three singles from the album was added by national radio in Sweden. On this album they also started to collaborate with other composers, for instance Per Gessle from Roxette took a liking to the band and gave them a song that they then reworked together.
“DiG iT” also features a guest appereance by the great US Americana artist Marti Brom.
Time for change
During 2015 Martin announced that he’d need to leave the band and an intense search for a new bassplayer took place, they didn’t have to search for long as Nathanael Marcusson was picked up on the radar. After a few rehearsals and a testgig the matter was settled and he is by now an integrated part of the band. Ready to take JLT to the next level!
JLT’s live performance is an energetic high-octane boost and no matter where they perform, JLT ends up being the talk of the town. This is a tight & hardrockin’ unit. Be sure not to miss them when they hit your town!
