Tobias Froberg:
By Mandana Beigi
Somewhere In The City (CD Cheap Lullaby)



Here is an incredibly talented singer/songwriter straight from Gotland, Sweden’s largest island, in the middle of the Baltic Sea. Tobias Froberg is one of the many musicians who have been inspired by the natural beauty and peaceful lifestyle of an island that has long been home to artists for generations.


Perhaps, it is the island’s rich history, or its unique geographical location in this world that contributed to Tobias’ taste and talent for creating music. Or perhaps he would have been the amazing musician that he is, regardless of time or place.

Really, the point is that there is something very special and mysterious about his songs, and even if is just for the sake of making this a little more interesting, I personally would like to think that Gotland had something to do with it!

His US debut record, Somewhere in the City, is one of the finest singer/songwriter releases I have come across in a long time. It is simple, both in creation and production. Tobias’ delicate arrangements and his intimate vocals take you back to a time when good music was valued for how it made you feel and not for its glossy production.

In “The Features of a Human Face,” it almost feels like a friend playing a tune somewhere in your living room. And he carries over that mood to his haunting duet with Ane Brun on “Love and Misery” – a track that was in fact recorded at Tobias’ apartment. Other favorites on the album are “God’s Highway,” “Oh My Love,” and “Forever Is Just A Word In a Love Song,” and “Thank You.”

Somewhere in the City has received rave reviews and his album opener, “When The Night Turns Cold,” is currently the theme of Panasonic’s TV advertising campaign in Europe. Stay tuned for Tobias’ U.S. tour dates in the coming months.
