Biography last updated November 27th 2018 One of Sweden's best kept secrets, the singer-songwriter I'm Kingfisher has returned with his sixth album Transit, which was released on April 13 on vinyl, CD and digitally via the newly started Stockholm based label Fading Trails Recordings. Transit follows to acclaimed records, Arctic and Avian, which received rave reviews in his native Sweden as well as from international publications such as Uncut and on Transit we find I'm Kingfisher at his most stripped down and intimate yet. NPR's All Songs Considered said "This record is awesome" and the lead single "What Good Would Loving Do Me Now" was picked up by US radio KEXP as their Song of The Day, "Topography of Gabon" was featured by NPR: All Songs Considered and the album in whole was very well-received in Swedish main media. Following the release, Thomas set out on an extensive Scandinavian tour, some dates as support to Damien Jurado, The Weather Station, David Ramirez, Louise Hoffsten, Christian Kjellvander and Sarah Shook. In June he joined the line-up of Stockholm Americana, a festival featuring Jason Isbell, The Handsome Family and John Moreland. The year was crowned with a career highlight when he got to sing with Magnolia Electric Co in Stockholm and Gothenburg. Behind the I'm Kingfisher moniker is the Swedish musician Thomas Jonsson, who's been honing his craft since the early 2000s, first recording under his given name before turning into the Kingfisher in 2010, and touring around the world, with over 600 shows in 20 countries under his belt. Transit was initially recorded by Jonsson on his own, recording both vocals and guitar simultaneously in full takes, with long-time producer Carl Edlom, before having some of Sweden's finest musicians adding their touches to it with Christian Kjellvander, Martin Hederos, Helena Arlock and Klabbe Hörngren being among the guests. "I wanted to give this album time, and time came to be a big part of it. Transit is my sixth solo album and my first truly stripped down one. While I've been collecting the songs for this album I've seen people both depart and arrive. Events and plans that ended and became something else, a feeling and a movement that fascinates me a lot."
