If Radiohead were jazz musicians, it would possibly sound a little like Jonathan Dafgårds music. The stories are about growing up, changing, and why we all want to be someone else at times. Every time the songs are played, they’re told a little differently, because of the mix between improvisation and songwriting. Jonathan grew up in Malmö, in the south of Sweden. Music had always been central for his family. However, he was not convinced until he heard David Gilmour from the band Pink Floyd. Another important musical inspiration is Brad Meldau. Maldau’s version of “Wonderwall” came to be the springboard into jazz. At the age of seventeen, Jonathan began playing guitar professionally. After playing at the Ystad Jazz Festival in both 2013 and 2015 and then attending Fridhems Folkhögskola, Jonathan decided to move to Amsterdam to study at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
