Loney Dear in Concert

February 5th, 2009

Episode 109 of 429 episodes

Emil Svanagen, a Swedish singer and former pro cyclist, writes and performs as Loney Dear. Loney Dear's music is sweetly innocent and mostly joyful, with candy-coated layers of delicate tones and atmospherics. As with his 2007 debut, Loney, Noir, Svanagen recorded his new album, Dear John, by himself in his living room and his parents' basement. For this performance, recorded live at the 9:30 Club, Loney Dear featured a full-band lineup, including Samuel Starck (keyboards), Malin Stahlberg (tambourine, vocals, keys), Ola Hultgren (drums) and David Lindvall (bass).
