about

Erik Dahl is a composer and pianist from Sweden with a passion for discovery. His music is melodic, melancholic and imaginative. Many describe the music as filmic and with a visual quality.

The impulse to make a piano album came unexpectedly. In 2018 Erik heard a solo concert with a folk singer at Saltoluokta Mountain Station in the far North of Sweden. She said: ’This song has been with me for 15 years’. The words had a deep effect and made him wonder. What would it mean to have a solo repertoire? Then he started writing songs.

The piano is at the centre on Music For Small Rooms. The music is both grandiose and restrained. There is a strong melodic element that binds together the diverse influences. Many af the sounds are recurring in Erik's music making. In addition to the piano you hear instruments like harmonium, synthesizers, viola, bass clarinet, live electronics, organic beats and field recordings. The album is produced in collaboration with Filip Leyman (Anna Von Hausswolff).

Erik has been releasing music since 2012 and has been consistently praised by reviewers in Sweden, as well as in the US, Canada and Holland. Music For Small Rooms combines elements of pop, jazz, modern classical, Swedish folk and ambient. It is possibly his most personal album to date.
