JONAS CARPING – STRANGERS is at Top 200 *and Folk* Radio Now!!!

If you’re a longtime Band Mom head, there’s a chance you may remember Jonas Carping from the last time I worked a record of his – Cocktails and Gasoline, back in 2016. He’s back!! But, while that 2016 record was tinged with classic rock, this one is stripped down raw, simple, quieter. Recorded live in the studio, primarily with just two guys, plus one lady adding some BGVs (not a full band). It’s got a Prince cover, a Neil Young cover, and five originals. I must admit it is very thrilling to me that I went from working with a New Zealander artist to a Swedish one. The Band Mom is international, baby!!

This is a rare record I’m promoting to two different charts in the NACC system: going for both Top 200 (general/rock/catchall) as well as Folk genre charts! If you’re a Folk director and we haven’t spoken before, hit me up – I’d love to send this your way!!




Jonas Carping is an independent artist based in Lund, Sweden. Jonas has released two studio albums – solo debut All The Time In The World (2012) and Cocktails & Gasoline (2015) which both reached critical acclaim in the underground blogosphere.
Strangers, Jonas’s third studio album, is a collaboration with Amsterdam guitar player Michiel Oskam (and with the support of background vocals from Sigrid Carping, Jonas’s wife). It was recorded live in the studio of Scotsman Simon Larkin residing in the heart of the south of Sweden. Simon is a former London-based session musician now running his own studio in Sweden – Larkin CS Studios.
Jonas and Michiel wanted to keep the recordings and arrangements as raw and naked as possible. Simon’s studio was the perfect place for this. It was a truly inspiring environment focused simply on the pure love for making music.
In addition to five original tracks, this album includes two covers: Prince’s “When Doves Cry” and Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World”. Both iconic songs that have been favorites of Jonas’s for a lifetime, stripped down to their hauntingly beautiful songwriting roots in tribute to their genius.
Honest and raw. Naked and pure. We hope you’ll love it.
