Blues is supposed to feel fresh and alive, it’s a most vital music in my opinion. In short I wanted to play the kind of music that I would like to hear myself and that I think a lot of other people would like and appreciate”. - Patrik J.

Patrik Jansson. It all started when the pandemic put an end to touring and suddenly there was time left over to start recording songs that had been piling up, songs that had not fit into previous musical contexts but now got their own forum. Being asongwriter, multi-musician and producerwith his own studio he recorded all the songs playing everything himself. This resulted in 16 recorded songs and the album Game Changer that was released October 2022. Several singles and videos was release prior to the album. "This is the most exciting and best thing I've ever done musically" says Patrik Jansson. "It's a mix of everything I've done and listened to throughout my musical career up until now, everything is included, from jazz and fusion to pop, rock, blues, Americana, punk, funk, soul, yes even reggae. "This time I didn't set any limits for myself, it was incredibly liberating in terms of creativity, to be able to create music without preconceived notions about how it should sound. The common thread, however, is the blues and hard rock, which have always been close to my heart. I grew up with 70s and 80s rock and blues music such as Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, B.B.King and ZZ Top then it went on tojazz and fusion such as Miles Davies, Chick Corea, Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra, this in turn led to more progressive rock and metal by bands like RUSH and Dream Theatre. Nowadays, I listen to everything from classical music and jazz to death metal. To me, there are only two kinds of music, good and bad".
