Getting a major record deal at a young age is where it’s at right? In the case of Johannes Nordell (aka SANT), this wasn’t the answer to all of his musical dreams. He went on to make three full length solo albums without releasing one of them. “It just didn’t feel right” he said. After working for years as a drummer in several different bands and writing/recording songs for his rock band Flykten, Johannes finally released his first ever solo tune – Visions of Madness. He sees this as a start for him to be creative and see where this work takes him. “It needs to be fun.” His artist name “SANT” means “true” in Swedish and, in his words, he plays “pop songs with a touch of sadness.” He seems like the kind of artist that warms up his vocal chords with gin and cigarettes and yet still seems able to hit all the right notes. Without further ado, here is “Visions of Madness” by SANT.
