True Brit! welcomes Swedish singer songwriter Patrik Tanner!

On this week's True Brit! our mercurial host Simon Husbands will embrace another part of Europe - Sweden! Swedish person Patrik Tanner, born and raised in Sweden, celebrates his first Swedish album release in 30 years with a special performance at the American Swedish Institute - and will give True Brit! listeners a tatse of that event! Tanner will perform songs in Swedish from his new album, På Svenska. Throughout the evening, he will be sharing the stories behind the songs in English during this intimate evening in the Turnblad Mansion Ballroom.

Tanner grew up with a unique, outside-looking-in perspective on the expanses of songwriting, and immersed himself in it early on. By thirteen, he had already become something of a teen star, releasing records on both Scandinavian and U.K. labels. At eighteen, Tanner moved to the U.S., living in Los Angeles and most recently, St. Louis Park. He has released nine albums in the U.S. prior to På Svenska.

Join Patrik and Simon - True Brit!, Friday night at midnight, behind the bike sheds, or streaming at kfai.org.
