Country Sweden

Style Melodic Rock/AOR

Profile Based in both Stockholm and in various cities in Småland Covered Call started out with drummer Ronny Svanströmer and guitarist Joel Carlsson at the helm. The band, however, was born in a small carpentry shed in the dark, deep forests of Småland in Sweden during 2006. The contrast couldnʼt be greater between the band and their name. Covered Call, an expression used in financial circles, epicts a picture of Wall Street, big cities, the frenzy of the stock market. We’re not talking glamour at all. Admittedly, some of the member’s regular work is firmly based in the financial market – hence the name.

Later on Morgan Rosenquist joined in and material for the first album rapidly taking shape. With their mixed influences covering everything from Motown via pop to hard rock and metal, it’s not surprising that the end result turned out to be refreshingly melodic, yet ballsy rock. Classic American road rock, if you like. They immediately landed a deal and had their debut album released internationally during 2009 with lead singer Thomas Vikström (Therion). The album has been highly acclaimed and critics have called it “AOR album of the year”. Money Never Sleeps was recorded and mixed at Studio Fredman by Fredrik Nordström & Henrik Udd. Thomas Vikström, who did a fantastic job, and bassplayer Thomas Thulin was replaced by singer Göran Edman (Ex Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum) and Andy Loos (Glory) respectively.

There were no quarrel, simply an adjustment to fit the bands progression on their second offering – Impact. Covered Call will prove, once again, that their brand of hook layered rock is a force to be reckoned with.Now they just needed a singer for the band. Through Blistering Records they got in contact with Thomas Wikström (Talk of the town, Candlemass, Therion) how decided to be the singer in Covered Call. The band was complete. And in January 2008 they released the debut album “Money never sleeps” in USA and later on in Europe. The response was amazing! The album has been highly acclaimed and critics have called it “AOR album of the year”. Money Never Sleeps is recorded and mixed at Studio Fredman by Fredrik Nordström & Henrik Udd. Produced by: Ronny Svanströmer & Joel Carlsson.
