Agren The Swedish singer-songwriter Thomas Jonsson returns with new album "Glue" (March 3rd 2023 via Fading Trails Recordings), his fifth full-length as I'm Kingfisher and his best yet, again working with producer Carl Edlom. Marrying the intimate sound of 2020's Manifest Awarded The Past Has Begun to a more experimental, sunny, even jazzy outlook with the help of Tom Waits collaborator Bebe Risenfors, Vilma Flood, Irish folk sensation Niamh Regan, Martin Hederos and more, Jonsson shows just why he’s been regarded as a hidden treasure of Scandinavian indie folk for years now, while still getting the attention of the likes of NPR, Uncut, KEXP and Clash internationally. 2021 he won the prestigious indie music award Manifest, as singer/songwriter of the year. It's been a slow and steady journey for Thomas Jonsson over the past two decades, first as Thomas Denver Jonsson and since 2010 as I'm Kingfisher, gradually establishing himself as one of the very finest songwriters in Nordics, working in a realm somewhere between singer-songwriter, folk, Americana, country and Nordic melancholy. Over the years he's shared the stage with the likes of Damien Jurado, Vetiver, The Weather Station and Kevin Morby, while releasing a string of acclaimed records. Glue finds Jonsson considering how life fits together, and when it doesn't; it's an album about what involuntary loneliness can do to a person, and loss of identity - as well as finding beauty in the broken. On Glue I'm Kingfisher is finally flying free, exploring new sounds and writing with more confidence and freedom before - the resulting album is his finest work yet, with a distinct jazz influence courtesy of Bebe Risenfors and Martin Hederos that opens up new roads, with Jonsson’s expert songwriting tying it all together. After the release of Glue he toured extensively, including touring with The Jayhawks and Courtney Marie Andrews. He's currently running a number of new recording projects, working on album#9 and releasing songs with a new side project with artist Sam Florian. 2022 he released the sparkling americana pop song "The Pain of Happiness", written exclusively for the award winning movie "Comedy Queen". The song ended up on rotation on Swedish national radio all spring and the movie soundtrack was nominated for the official Swedish movie award Guldbaggen.
