: Erik Hassle lyrics
During her entire pregnancy, Erik’s mother Monica was working as a singer and carried Erik on to stage every time she performed. It was the spring of 1988. As Erik made loan of his mother’s spotlight for the first time, at the age of 3(?), singing “En sockerbagare”, Monica gets to play the piano. The performance was presented in presence of the captivated audience of Santa Claus, also known as “Dad”.
Five years later, Erik had really gotten a taste for music. Erik’s Dad, Roger, had a studio where Erik spent most of his time listening to everything from
Wilson Picket and Sam Cooke to Creedence Clear Water Revival. In that studio, Erik would also find a pair of drum sticks that which of course, he couldn’t keep his hands away from. After two years of drumming at the local music school, Erik started to yearn for melodies.
So, he switched – drums for xylophone.
2001 was Erik’s first year in high school. He kept his esthetics busy in a class with the alignment of music. Very soon Erik noticed that his instrument of choice had several restrictions and drawbacks. To further facilitate his need of musical expression, Erik switched – again – this time to piano instead. After 2 years in high school and at the end of his third and last, Erik was forced to neglect his other interests off golf and football as he moved to Stockholm to attend to the musician and artist program at Rytmus; this time not to play the Piano; but to sing.
Erik spent another three years in Rytmus and during his last, the songwriters Tysper, Mack and Grizzly laid claim to Erik’s voice. Sweet music aroused when clean pop melodies zipped with Erik’s soul stained singing.
After his graduation Erik earns his money by working extra as a waiter in Stockholm.
He spends his free hours by recording and write songs together with other song writers/producers.
