Elevener came to life as childhood friends Johan Bergquist (vocals, keyboards, bass) and Andreas Brodén (guitar, drums) joined forces in 2005 to make new music sounding as if the 90’s never had existed. Johan & Andreas had played in numerous bands together during the mid- & late eighties and then moved on to pursue new musical adventures.
Throughout the nineties Johan developed his love for progressive rock and was the lead singer/keyboardist for Swedish progsters Scenario for five years. During those years Andreas went to USA and came back to Sweden as a slick soul & funk guitarist and earned his stripes doing studio sessions and playing clubs in Stockholm. As a keyboard player, Johan appeared on the Hammerfall album “Crimson Thunder” as well as on Stefan Elmgren’s Full Strike (both released in 2002). In 2002 Johan became the keyboard player for Swedish metal/hardrock band M.ill.ion who released the critically acclaimed “Kingsize” in 2004 and among the gigs that followed was a well received performance at the very first Firefest in 2005 and also a UK tour with MSG. In May 2008 M.ill.ion will release “Thrill of the Chase” (on AOR/Metal Heaven) an album that was recorded by Johan who also was very much involved in the song-writing (as on Kingsize previously).
At the dawn of the new millenium Johan & Andreas got together and soon realised that they both had gone full circle and returned to the music the grew up with; melodic rock/AOR. New songs were written and in 2005 the project known as “Elevener” was born. As the project rolled on it became a more & more serious matter and finally the album “When Kaleidoscopes Collide” was recorded and soon after that a deal was signed with AOR/Metal Heaven who will release the album in July 2008. The Elevener debut-album “When Kaleidoscopes Collide” was mixed by Tobias Lindell at Studio Bohus and mastered by Dragan Tanaskovic, also at Studio Bohus. The album contains 11 tracks of pure AOR, with the unique blend that is the sound of Elevener.
