Johannes Zetterberg (a native of Stockholm, Sweden) was born
on November 17, 1985. Growing up in a musical family, he was
exposed to a lot of different music at an early age.
"Well, being that my father's a countertenor with a soft
spot for Oscar Peterson, I guess I quickly learned to
appreciate classical music & jazz. On the other hand, there
were groups & artists like Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind &
Fire, Michael Jackson, Toto, Chicago & lots of others, all
of which I found on my mother's mixtapes. It was like
discovering a gold mine with all kinds of cool music,
ranging from the hits of the 60's to the boy bands of the
90's! So yeah, it got pretty diverse right from the get-go."
He started playing the bass at twelve, and fell in love with
the instrument right away
