Swedish Blues Singer Louise Hoffsten to Release New CD
Published August 15, 2005

Swedish blues artist Louise Hoffsten follows her Memphis International Records debut, Knäckebröd Blues, with From Linköping To Memphis, a collection of original songs that run the gamut from evocative to atmospheric to contemplative to rocking to funky. The album will be released in Sweden in early September and domestically on September 20th. 

Louise Hoffsten is one of the most widely respected contemporary artists in her native Sweden, and the album reflects the life journey Hoffsten has taken from Linköping, her small hometown in central Sweden, to the city that is synonymous with soul, blues and rock ’n’ roll and the players who brought the music to life. 

Hoffsten recorded the album late in the spring of 2005 at Ardent Studios and Memphis Soundworks. Working with producer David Less, Memphis International’s co-founder, and co-producer Posey Hedges, she fronted an all-star aggregation of the best musicians Memphis has to offer including Stax studio veteran Lester Snell (keyboards), Booker T & The MGs’ Steve Potts (drums), David Smith (bass), Steve Selvidge (guitar), Jim Spake (sax), Scott Thompson (trumpet) as well as a string section consisting of Jonathan Wires, Jonathan Kirkscey and the Gypsy Hombres’ Peter Hykra. Unlike Knäckebröd Blues, Hoffsten had a hand in writing 10 of the 11 songs that comprise From Linköping To Memphis.
