Tingsek is a Swedish musician and producer from Södra Sandby, Sweden.



To date, Tingsek has released seven albums. “Tingsek” (2005),”World of Its Own” (2006) and “Too Many Feelings at the Same Time” (2008) were all released on Universal Music. This partnership came to an end in 2009 which prompted him to start World Of Its Own Recordings, and this is the label on which ”Restless Soul” (2009) and "Tingsek & Vindla String Quartet feat. Måns Mernsten" (2011) was released.

Originally only available in digital form, ”Tingsek & Vindla String Quartet feat. Måns Mernsten" was released after the completion of a tour where the aim had been to rearrange some of Tingsek's earlier releases and thus produce something new and fresh. [1]

An exclusive vinyl edition of the album, a total of 300 numbered and signed copies, was released in April 2012. [2]

Early that same year, Tingsek produced the Isak Strand vs. Toe album ”Theory of Everything”. [3] Later in 2012 he went on tour in Europe & North America together with Allen Stone, and spent the remainder of 2013 playing live shows throughout Europe. [4]

From 2014 and up until recently, Tingsek has co-written, engineered and produced the majority of Allen Stone's new album "Radius" (released in May 2015).

However, parallel to his musical collaborations and experiments Tingsek never stopped creating and working on his own music, [5] and on October 14, 2016 his sixth studio album "Amygdala" was released. [6]

The third album to be released on Tingsek's own label World Of Its Own Recordings, "Amygdala" [7] is an album not unlike his earlier work but with a different musical direction, built on new premises in order to find a new sound. [8] Working closely with Måns Mernsten, the end result is an album much darker, more retrospective than the albums that came before. [9] Named after the section of the brain responsible for processing memories and feelings, "Amygdala" is heavily influenced by memories, nostalgia and a strong desire to create a coherent album with a consistent sound while simultaneously finding new ways of expressing himself; both musically and lyrically but also in regards to his vocals as well as the production of the album. Tingsek will initially promote the new album by touring Sweden and Norway during the last months of 2016 and the rest of Europe in 2017. [10]

Tingsek's most recent album "Home" was released in May, 2021. [11]


Some of the artists and groups Tingsek has played and collaborated with over the years include Timbuktu, [12] Damn!, Loosegoats, Sideshow Bob, Fjärde Världen, Adam Tensta, Slakah the Beatchild, Ane Brun, Allen Stone, [13] Ebrahim, Svante Lodén, Chords, Pauline, Haley Reinhart, Sarah Dawn Finer, Isak Strand vs. Toe, Gaby and The Guns, Helt Off, Emily King and Bernhoft.

<span class="mw-page-title-main">The Bear Quartet</span> Swedish indie rock band

The Bear Quartet was a cult indie rock band from Luleå in northern Sweden. They were formed in the summer of 1989 with the original roster of Mattias Alkberg on guitar and vocals, Jari Haapalainen and Johan Forsling on guitar, Peter Nuottaniemi on bass, and Magnus Olsson on drums. However, the band's lineup changed significantly before eventually settling on Mattias Alkberg on vocals and guitar, Jari Haapalainen on guitar, Peter Nuottaniemi on bass, Jejo Perkovic on drums, and Calle Olsson on keyboards. Their name is a reference to the novel Gentlemen by Klas Östergren. Although they were formed in 1989, they didn't garner the attention of a record label until 1992. They made records at a steady rate from 1992, with their debut album, Penny Century, to 2010 with their final album Monty Python. Their albums were often received favorably, but they never resulted in large sales, usually only selling between 1,000 and 10,000 units per disc. The band is very obscure across the world, although they are much better known in Sweden.
