Anders Grahn on SoundBetter

Multi platinum songwriter with Black Eyed Peas, Haley Reinhart, Andrew McMahon, TVXQ and more. Touring guitarist for 2 years with Anastacia, Reinhart and many more. Professional in the business for 20+ years. Endorsed by Gibson guitars.

Versatile writer and top liner with global success in everything from K & J-pop to top 40 pop, Alternative, and Hip Hop. I bring my bag of tricks, you bring yours and we see what we end up using! It's all about getting a vibe!

Vocal style - Raspy/bluesy by default, but quite adaptable for what's on the table.
Range wise comfortable from low D to high falsetto (around E2). Good mixed chest voice/falsetto control, comfortable chest voice up to around G1.

Guitar - style wise brought up on the Beatles and blues music. Played a lot of funk & soul, plus many gigs around the world with house, trance and lounge music DJ’s where the guitar is more used as a rhythm instrument and for mantra type riffs and arpeggios.
