G2

G2 turn heads thanks to their fresh sound and original material, connecting to a younger audience as well as paying respect to the bluegrass tradition. Now they are back releasing their third album, Mind Over Matter on October 9, 2014. 

This time they flew to Nashville and recorded with Nashville producer and engineer Erick Jaskowiak (6 time Grammy nominated,previously worked with Della Mae,
T Bone Burnett, Alison Krauss, Trisha Yearwood, Tim O\'Brien and Darrell Scott).

Mind Over Matter is a fresh turn in G2\'s journey: they have introduced new sounds to their music and removed boundaries between genres which clearly invites new listeners not yet acquainted with bluegrass. They combine their Scandinavian roots with American roots and with a pop influence, their music is unique. It\'s G2.

The five band members met while jamming at a festival in Sweden. Only one year after the band was formed they were awarded #1 European Bluegrass Band in 2007. The award made it possible for G2 to visit the IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) convention in Nashville, TN. Since 2007, G2 has regularly toured the US and Europe. They have lived in Nashville for 6 months and toured the US and Canada.

They have appeared on Swedish national television on numerous occasions, they have opened for acts like Kris Kristofferson and supported people like Jim Lauderdale and they have played, as the first and only non-american band (!), at the famous IBMA Awards Show at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN.
