Fredrik Kinbom is a Swedish lap steel slide guitarist, songwriter and singer who is attracting a steadily growing number of fans through his very personal brand of music, cinematic moods and intimate live shows.
Fredrik mainly plays the lap steel guitar, but the way he plays it sounds nothing like the hawaiian or country sound most people would associate with the lap steel. He really creates his own sonic universe
As a songwriter, Fredrik recently collaborated with platinum-selling artist Sarah Blasko on her critically acclaimed album "I Awake". As a lap steel player, he has played with acts like award-winning Aboriginal Australian singer Gurrumul and UK band Moulettes, on stages like the Barbican Hall in London.
Fredrik Kinbom's new album Oil was released by Capstan Records in May 2014 and had received great critical acclaim:
"Oil is amazing and Kinbom’s talent is extraordinary." - 4.5/5 stars - Renowned For Sound
"...an artist that has found a sound so unique and contemporary, that it belies comparison to stand on its own as a testament of Kinbom's artistic creativity. This is a must have." - Floorshime Zipper Boots
"It’s not every day that sheer force of feeling can be conveyed in a simplistic manner. With Oil, Fredrik Kinbom has achieved just that. [...] it is a masterclass of minor key magnificence." - Closewatch Music
