Armadillo King is a songwriter from Sweden who has been releasing original music in his native Swedish for many years, more recently writing and recording in English, channelling his own heroes Dylan, Petty, Bowie, Young etc.
Armadillo Kings songs come from a third persons perspective and narrative—he was once told he had been a bandit in a past life —so he often calls upon this previous existence. It’s a narrative of a man, trying to get through a regular life, but somehow being roped into some parallel, precarious scenario. Each song is carefully crafted to reflect his own experience and to reflect the lives of others as seen through his lens.
As of today I can proudly present Armadillo King as a band. We will do our premiere gig at the legendary Stampen in Gamla stan (Stockholm) on November 2nd. Very much looking forward to this!
We are currently preparing for gigs and we also have our minds set on an album in the near future.

Deadwood rye (release 15/7)
The new single “Deadwood rye” contains two different takes. One stripped down version with just me and my guitar as well as a band version recorded during a rehearsal in early June. On this version my new and very talented band is introduced. We will be ready for some shows later on this year. To promote and accompany the song a moodful music video has been made.
