Alexander John Ericson, a.k.a. "J. A. Ericson", is a Swedish musician living and working in Berlin.
His latest album "Songs From The White Sea" marked the culmination of a number of personal journeys, from his native Sweden, via London, to Berlin where he now lives and from a background in electronica (The Northern Territories), via rock with his brother’s band Alberta Cross, to a very personal blend of songwriting that draws on all these experiences.
Taking a distinctly European approach to his craft, which both recalls and updates influences such as P.J. Harvey, Jacques Brel, David Bowie and Brian Eno’s collaborations.
The BBC Music on "Songs From The White Sea":
"Quiet may have ceased being the new loud, but this demonstrates that Ericson is a welcome addition to the school of soft, reflective troubadours. It is an album that consistently doesn’t do what you think it’s going to, and frequently delights. BBC Music / Music Week Panel
