Congratulations to our former Musikmakarna students Louise Frick Sveen and Albin Nordqvist for to the prestigious award ”Excellent Record of the Year”, presented by the Composers Association Japan!
 

The commendation for achievements of particular importance to the internationalisation of Swedish music was awarded to Musikmakarna with the following citation:

“In recent years, the Swedish and international music industry has been on pilgrimage to Örnsköldsvik where, under the slogan ‘It all starts with a great song’, a community songwriter programme has been fostering tomorrow’s songwriters for 20 years and created a well-deserved reputation as a nursery for unique talents. Hitmakers such as LÉON, Agrin Rahmani, Joy & Linnea Deb, SKOTT, SHY Martin & SHY Nodi, and many more, have received the tools they needed to create brilliant careers as music creators.

Tireless work led by real enthusiasts with a passion for music, and Head Teacher Ulla Sjöström who never compromises her vision, have given Sweden not only its first songwriter programme but also major international musical success. In addition to raising an entire occupational category to unimaginable heights, the school has also made a major contribution to gender equality in the Swedish music industry.”
