Summer on our minds 🌞 Gigs and releases!
Time to sit back and relax or having more fun? 🌞 Summertime is finally here after a busy Winter and Spring with lots of hard studio work indoors. We're happy to share the result with you as well as switching to outdoor activities in terms of live performances!
We had a fabulous time singing at the celebrations of the Swedish national day in Sundbyberg on June 6. 🇸🇪 💛💙 Thanks for having us! This time we had the opportunity to invite the guest artist and tenor Kalle Leander to sing one of our own songs Revival as well as the classic cover of Anthem.

We were invited to host an appreciated sing-along performance at Ylva's work place ICA during a Summer event both live and broadcasted online for the entire company. Happy to see all the people singing with us to Summer classics that we have performed numerous times on party gigs and weddings. This time was a different challenge to get the office people involved early in the morning at 10AM 😀 both on site and streaming at home.
Hopefully they all enjoyed it and got some good vibes. We love to see when the audience is involved and happy, just being themselves, singing and doing moves. It's actually healthy to sing, it will stimulate your "vagus nerve" connected to the muscles at the back of your throat. Did you know that? Ask Chat GPT and you'll find out more! 😉 More from this day on Insta and FB 👉https://www.facebook.com/ylvaandlindaonevoice 👉 https://www.instagram.com/ylvalinda/
We have another upcoming gig singing our own songs together with the artist and medium, good friend and personal coach 💗 Sara Ekholm at Josefina, Djurgården in Stockholm on July 1, 5 PM. We hope to see you there! 👉 https://www.facebook.com/events/724599259410267/?acontext=%7B%22event_action_history%22%3A%7D
We're really happy to get all these opportunities of singing live, it cannot be taken for granted and we all remember the years of restrictions, but it's also requires a lot of time and effort to do preparations, taking meetings, communicate and setting the requirements to make things happen including sound, instrumental background, clothes, filming and not to forget the mental preparations as expectations are high! 👍 All of our years experiences from gigs, digital broadcasts and TV performances came in handy!

We are also looking forward to taking some time off in July and August to release the stress and prioritize health after always being available 24/7 all year around. 😅😓 It will be nice to spend quality time with family and do some travelling. We love to start many projects and to see the result, but when working in collaborations everyone have their own schedules and workflow and there is a tendency to postpone everything until the last minute and not set a plan, leaving us last in the chain having to wait to complete the final tasks, like doing backing vocals, editing vocals, doing cover image, videos, preparing and doing the release or submitting the songs to meet the deadline. We mostly act as project leaders too, following up on everyone in the team making them communicate with eachother and keep a timeline, which is a hard and tiresome task. Especially when you have another full time job as well. 😅 Having to wait can also be stressful when the timeline is getting shorter and plans are not kept. However it's been a very productive songwriting year so far starting with 4 songs in Eurovision and to sum up 10 years as songwriters for ESC we released our own Swedish version of "Så länge jag lever" on Spotify and Youtube. Please check it out and thanks for your lovely support! 👉 https://open.spotify.com/track/5gIUgyTyfaV9Ucajt4oqI7?si=2cd6ad939d5a4dec
We were overwhelmed to get the opportunity to have our music journey covered in an article of two huge pages in the paper Allas!! We had a pleasant afternoon at home being interviewed and photographed by two lovely, professional people so it was very easy and therapeutic to tell our story. Also interesting to wrap up our lives and music career so far in this way. So much nice comments coming from all of you after doing this, thanks alot!

To support and celebrate Pride we had the pleasure of doing another official song for Pride Lillehammer in Norway. This time with Liza Vassilieva.

We are also really excited to reveal that we have a very special cover song release coming up at the end of June together with this team. It will be featured in a live performance at Pride Stockholm this Summer that has been our dream for many years! 💥💦
The event season is back on track since last year and we're honoured to be invited to Café Opera AWs and Sthlm Beauty week for openings, book releases, art galleries and much more! We unfortunately had to turn down a few invitations this year due to lack of time and energy - health goes first. Always working hard to reach our goals and that takes time and effort!
