leaves

Billy Momo Says: All the leaves are brown…

Leaves they are changin’, now at Billy Monmo 33. by Gramps   And, just like that, summer is over. It seemed almost like an overnight thing. Suddenly rush hour traffic came back to Stockholm with a vengeance (nowadays ”rush hour” here is fairly non-stop between 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.) after a few months of pretty…

live

Billy Momo Says: Live vs. Recording

Live vs. recording now on Billy Mommo #31. by Oskar Hovell   There are very few things I love as much as performing live with Billy Momo. Except for a few things I do with family and friends, the only thing I can think of is recording music with Billy Momo. Billy Momo is a great…

Drunktalk

Billy Momo Says: Second Album, Drunktalk

Drunktalk this on on Billy Momo #29. by Tomas ‘Barba’ Juto   Drunktalk was our second album. It was written and recorded during a time that on paper should have been a really bad time to get shit done. In the beginning of the process I was on parental leave with my daughter, and at the end…

Seven Rivers Wild

Billy Momo Says: Seven Rivers Wild

Seven Rivers Wild, now on Billy Momo #28. by Barba   Seven Rivers Wild is our third album and the latest we’ve released so far. But there is more to come, don’t you worry. I would say that this is the first album we’ve released as a seven piece group. We are not a duo…

Mind, what’s on yours? Now on Billy Momo #27. by Gramps   Sometimes people come up to me after a show and say, ”You look so happy up there on stage. Your joy is really contagious! What’s going on in your mind when you’re performing? What are you thinking about?” I am usually quite the…

Money

Billy Momo Says: Not in it for the money

Money isn’t everything, now on Billy Momo #26. by Orren   We’re not in it for the money. Neither is anyone else. Because it’s not 1996. And we can’t complain, we’re in it for the love of it. Who cares about money, right? Well, terribly sorry, but we all do. Because we live in the real…

woords

Billy Momo Says: Words

Words now at Billy Momo #25. by Orren   “Words are very unnecessary, they can only do harm”. I love that line. Simple, but so true. In romantic situations like the one in the song as well as in many others. Love pop lyrics. Simple, down to earth and to the point. It’s a damn…

Circadian rhythm

Billy Momo Says: Circadian rhythm and the creative mind

Billy Momo #19 – Circadian rhythm. by Tony‘Gramps’ Lind    Up until very recently, Orren would refuse to acknowledge jet lag as a real phenomenon. I’m just gonna leave that there. Most people whom I would consider artistically creative, tend to thrive at night. I know, it sounds like a terribly clichéd stereotype, but I really think…

Billy Momo Says: Can’t we all just get along?

Billy Momo #18 – Get along now at the GTC. by Tomas Juto aka Barba. Photo: Christopher Anderzon   I’ve always been fascinated by music scenes.
