Tailsway is a contemporary folk music project by Pernilla Bergman and Johan Nordström. Our music is an eclectic blend of musical genres with a strong emphasis on our love for Celtic folk music.
Pernilla’s roots are in the Finno-Swedish folk music of the South-Western archipelago of Finland. In her early twenties she discovered the Celtic music branch and fell completely in love with it. That is the style she has studied the most and it has had a big influence over her and Tailsway’s compositions. Pernilla is an all eater when it comes to music. That is also true for her husband Johan.
Johan has been playing in bands since his early teens. He also has a broad taste in music, and that clearly shows in the tunes on Tailsway’s debut album Obsidian. As Johan is a sound engineer everything Tailsway do is recorded, produced, mixed and mastered in our home studio, by the two of us.
Our new album Obsidian is a mix of our shared passion for folk music and other styles of music we love, such as blues, pop, rock, jazz and electronic music. All the tracks on the album are our original compositions. Some of them we have composed together without a particular style in mind. We think the end result of those tunes is quite fun and interesting.
The album was released November 5. You can listen to it here. It is also available to buy as a CD and digital download on Bandcamp. Your support would mean a lot to us.
