Biography / October 2011:
In the summer of love 2009, “The Fantastic People” saw the light of dawn, six old friends, six headstrong characters, six instruments (yeah, the vocals is surely an instrument with this band) found a new path in life after a “once in a life time jam”. Strongly influenced by the summer and the atmosphere/mood within the band an intense time of song-writing commenced and at the same time the decision to move on, away from former bands and strange record deals. It was time to start fresh, this time on their own, with their own record label. As soon as early autumn the goal for the band had been set and the recording of the debut album, “Fantastic Music for Fantastic People”, had begun.
In March 2010 the band signed a contract with the Swedish music publisher “Misty Music” (Union Carbide, Fireside, José Gonzales, Dollhouse etc) who has been an important strategic partner in getting the record out on digital distribution (iTunes, Spotify etc) as well as look into opportunities for the future.
In June 2010 “Fantastic Music” organized a big release party for the debut album "Fantastic Music for Fantastic People". Then the band had a lot of gigs, eg Close To Home Festival (Borås), Live at Heart (Örebro), and a successful trip to Latvia to play at Riga City Festival and at the club Depo.
Prior to the album release the promoter “Hemifrån” was hired to send out 200 copies of carefully selected promotional CDs to relevant media (mostly Scandinavia). Besides some great reviews, this led to some radio airplay outside Sweden.
