Klas Jervfors Turner

I was born and now I'm alive...

I play various brass instrument with various success.

“For me the longing to be able to live in harmony with family, nature, work and music has always been a soul searching quest. I still search for that state of mind and balance in life where everything is just flow. The fishermen in the film had their challenges and anxieties that came out of their way of living. Just as the fishermen I have my fair share of those thoughts from where I stand, a midlife father, working in the rat race… But, that can´t keep me of dreaming of something bigger and better. In short: Suburban dreams”.

Although Klas has only released one album in his own name, it is far from the only album Klas participates in. He has, over the years, played various horns behind many of Sweden's greatest artists both on recordings and on stage. His musical background reaches from world music and reggae to pop, blues and jazz. For example Klas played in Dennis Bovell’s dub band for 10 years backing up the great reggae poet Linton ‘Kwesi’ Johnson. He was also a member in the Algerian/Swedish raï band Hada Raïna for 12 years. Mentionable among other various projects is the collaboration with the Ethiopian artist Zjansiyom Henok and with the Persian vocalist Pari Isazadeh.

As a studio musician and on stage have Klas worked with many, mainly Swedish, well-known artists and band throughout the years
