Peter Arne Jöback (born June 4, 1971 in Stockholm, Sweden) is a Swedish singer and musical artist. Peter Jöback has established himself as one of the most prolific and respected Swedish artists – an extraordinary performer with an amazing voice. Peter sings pop, folk, musical to traditional Swedish songs. Peter Jöback got his big break through his collaboration with ABBA legends Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson. In their epic musical “Kristina från Duvemåla” (The Emigrants) Peter created the role of “Robert” and his theme song “Guldet blev till sand” broke every record in the Swedish charts.

The chosen song is "Hollow", composed by Anders Hansson and Fredrik Kempe.
This last two days i have been working with Peter to set up the rehearsals for his Christmas tour that will start off next weekend. Even if Peters stuff ain't my cup of the i must admit that he has a amazing voice and that he is a nice chap to work with. To choose a tune for today on a area that i am not so familiar with, even if this is probably the 10th time i am doing something with Peter. Most of the tunes on the set list is Christmas songs in Swedish, but there was a couple english tunes in between. So i pick a tune that he did on the rehearsal earlier today that sounded good.
Todays tune "Sing" is from Peter Jöback's Latest album "East Side Stories" that was released 28th of October. The tune is a duet with Kate Pierson from the B52’s. And it's written by the band "Travis". Enjoy!
This video includes the same setup as he will use on the Christmas tour, "Sing" with Cookies 'n Beans. Enjoy.
