The Swedish Grammis Awards took place on February 7, 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden. A few of our team members were in attendance to celebrate the artists, labels, and partners who won Grammis, from a total of 12 nominations.
Sarah Klang (Pangur Records) won Best Alternative Pop at the Swedish Grammis for Love In The Milky Way, released in 2018. The album peaked at #1 on the Swedish Album Charts upon release. Deemed the “saddest girl in Sweden,” her international presence has grown with her magnificent voice. A “voice that seems to conjure entire landscapes” according to Clash Magazine, Sarah has sold out shows in her hometown of Gothenburg, and three straight sold out nights at Stockholm’s Sodra Teatern. So far in 2019, Sarah released her single “Call Me” off her upcoming album.
Blender (Blender Produktion AB) won Best Dansband (Dance Band) for the album Gambla litegrann, released April 20, 2018. Founded in March 2002 by Lasse Lundberg, the band has played all over Sweden, and, as a collective, won various Swedish awards.
Amanda Ginsburg earned Best Jazz for her 2018 album Jag har funderat på en sak (Naxos Sweden – LB/Altissimo!). A Sweden jazz singer and composer from Stockholm, Sweden, Amanda graduated from The Royal College of Music in 2014 where she focused on writing music and lyrics. Amanda will be touring throughout the winter leading into April.
Congratulations to all the nominees and winners at the Swedish Grammis!
