Here's a guy I first heard of from swedesplease.
There's a lot of good singer/songwriters coming out of Sweden, and Tias Carlson is one of them. He released his debut album, What I have gathered from coincidence, in 2005 and hopefully he'll have a new album out early summer 2006. I could hardly find any info on him, but here's a quite nice interview from German sweet jane music
I really like the song below, so please take a listen. And if you like it too - of course you should go to his homepage for more ^^
