During his 20 years in the music business, Robert Pehrsson has worked with bands such as Runemagick, Thunder Express, Death Breath, Dundertåget, Imperial State Electric, Slingblade, Nerconaut och Dagger.
Now he's making his solo debut with Robert Pehrsson's Humbucker. The self titled album has received universal acclaim and was recently named record of the month by German magazine Rock Hard. The Swedish newspaper Expressen listed the song as one of the best of the best of 2013.
The album was recorded at Gutterveiw Recorders in Stockholm. Contributing musicians on the record include friends Nicke Andersson, Dolf De Borst och Tomas Eriksson of Imperial State Electric; Peter Stjärnvind (Nifelheim, Black Trip), Joseph Tholl (Enforcer, Black Trip), Robert Eriksson (ex The Hellacopters), Olle Dahlstedt (Entombed), Johan Bäckman (Necrocourse) and Johannes Borgström.
So, what's the result when these well-renowned musicians work together? – Robert Pehrssonʼs Humbucker is a mix of rock, hard rock och pop. I guess classic rock is an okay description. And I like all the old bands in that genre, says Robert Pehrsson
Live, Robert Pehrsson's Humbucker is: Drums: Jakob Ljungberg (Tribulation & Kilroy) Guitar and vocals Joseph Tholl (Enforcer, Black Trip) Bass: Jens Lagergren (Hello Saferide, Dundertåget, I Are Droid)
Rock Hard “ALBUM OF THE MONTH” (9.5/10)
A soloalbum that will give fans of archetypal Swedish high-energy rock tears of joy.
CLASSIC ROCK (8/10)
Robert Pehrsson has become leading member of Swedish ‚Team Rock'n'Roll.
Sweden Rock Magazine 8/10
The way to pick up influences, assemble them down to details which are then put together into something of their own and timeless is ingenious and deeply impressive.
Referring pretty much to the 1970s, with a distinctive affection forThin-Lizzy and a nearly shameless sense for hooklines the not all that old Swede serves a Classic Rock dinner that puts a smile on every fan of the good old Hellacopters style. A true revelation!!
It's not overstated to say that Pehrsson's solo album is probably the best Scandinavian classic rock album since 10 years.
Vintage sound, thick, authentic drums, rolling bass, fantastic solos and very good vocals accompanied by a skilled hand in arranging brings out an album that is more than just good.
His vocals convey pure passion, and his guitar playing is one of the most impressive one has savored in recent years.
Pehrsson proves here that he is a really good guitar player with a lot of feeling in the fingers and in addition also can write great songs. Oh yes, he can sing also, with a powerful and melodic voice.
Acces: Rock (8/10)
These are no beginners who have recorded this, but a collection of seasoned musicians who know what arranging is and what gives an effect in the listener's soul.
