Beginning of a Great Song 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. Earlier 2022 he released the sparkling americana pop song "The Pain of Happiness", written exclusively for the award winning youth movie "Comedy Queen". The song ended up on rotation on Swedish national radio all spring and the movie soundtrack is currently nominated for the official Swedish movie award Guldbaggen.
