Krister - Guitar
I grew up in Sweden & started playing guitar around the age of 14. I played in various original bands doing the local scene. In 1994, at the age of 21, I realized I needed a change, so I moved to MN to study music at what was then Music Tech College, which later became McNally & Smith. I was picked to write & perform music for the school's commercial, which was shot at The Fine Line. I got picked up by a cover band right away & have been performing ever since. Meanwhile I also started teaching guitar & have done so ever since. Later I went on a National Tour with American Head Charge. Currently I am a teacher & band director at the Eden Prairie School Of Rock as well as running an open jam every Thursday & playing with L-N-D. I'm also putting the finishing touches on my album which will be released in -23. I feel very lucky to have landed the L-N-D gig & I'm looking forward to the future with them. Notable bands I've been in
