Music Shack Records / About
Björn Johansson was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden
He started his music career by playing on a neighbor’s piano and eventually convinced his parents to buy one. A few years later he got his first guitar.
His father had a tape recorder and Björn started to record songs with the ”Sound on Sound” option. You have to be very old to remember how to do that.
In high school Björn realized that he had more options to play with various groups
if he stuck to the keyboards instead of the guitar. He developed his skills and started to play fusion music with some very good fellow musicians. In this period of time he also started to write music.
In the late 80’s, early 90’s Björn worked with a singer from Bolivia, Milton Cortez. They made a couple of albums together and on of them became a gold album in Bolivia.
Then Björn took a break from the music for almost 10 years. After the millennium he created a music studio in his summerhouse and he was back on track composing and producing music.
In 2011 he met B Angie B a former protégé of MC Hammer and a singer/dancer on tours and albums. He produced one album for her ”Stronger Than Ever”. Working together with James Early that produced most of MC Hammers albums and various musicians from US, UK and Sweden.
2018 Björn released an album with the Italian artist Silvia Olari, ”There is Something About You” which peaked #2 on the Italian R&B iTunes chart.
