Rising Stars


What are you currently up to?

Well, we are planning the gigs for this summer/autumn right now. We also start on new song material.

Brief history of Covered Call...

Ronny, our drummer was the one how started this band in 2006. We wanted to create music that people know but make it in our way.

Me (Joel), Ronny and singer Johan together with our old guitarist Ola started to write material for the album. Further on Johan decided to leave the band (family, kids..) and we started to look for a new singer.

Thomas Thulin joins the band playing bass and the recording started in late 2007. Thru the record label Blistering Records we hooked up with Thomas Vikström how decided to join Covered Call and put his mark on the record.

Later on Ola were replaced by Morgan Rosenquist.

Could you take us through your cracking new album album 'Money Never Sleeps'

It usually start with Ronny comes with a riff or melody, and we all build it from there.

We like to make music that people recognize, but with our touch.

How do you go about promoting your music? Do sites like MySpace, Facebook etc. bring you in new fans and potentially sales? Or is it a case of having lots of 'friends' many of whom never bother with the music?

Good question. We have our own MySpace site and get a lot of good fans from there. People seem to like what we are doing.

Blistering Record is doing a great job with the promotion.
We get good response from both USA and Europe.

Who are your musical influences?

We have many different influences which you can hear in our music. Van Halen, Bon Jovi, UFO, Thin Lizzy to name a few.

How did you get your first break into the music business? What piece of advice would you pass onto budding musicians?

"Money never sleeps" is our debut album. We wanted to make a strong first album with great songs.

I don't know if I am in position to make advices, but I think if you love to play your music don't you give up!

How do you view the current rock music scene? Has there been much opportunity for Covered Call to play live at all? Any other bands out there that you would recommend?

The Swedish rock scene is growing bigger for each year. There are many good bands out there playing.

Covered Call has been busy with this debut album and everything around that. So we are planning gigs for the future in this moment.

Any good rock 'n' roll tales to tell?

No. :

What ideally would you like to achieve by this time next year?

A good response of this album and many great gigs. We hope that we can start the recording of the new album during next year.

What do you like doing with your spare time outside of music?

We all have families that take a lot of time. So music is our spare time. :

Message for your fans...

Covered Call want to give the fans some great shows 2008!!
