Andreas Aleman was born and raised in Södertälje, a town south of Stockholm, Sweden.
Around age 3, Andreas began playing the piano and the accordion, writing simple songs on both.
Andreas's parents’ tastes in music rubbed off on the young man; he would often come home from school and listen to their LPs of artists such as Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, and Elton John, among others.
This exposed Andreas to soul, funk, blues, gospel, and good pop music, which in turn influenced his style and writing.
During junior high, he began playing the keyboard and singing in different bands. When it was time to start high school, he applied and was accepted into a music program where he studied for 3 years. It was a constant journey of discovery of new music and new artists. There, he gained an appreciation for the likes of Michael McDonald, Toto, Tower of Power, Maceo Parker, Nils Landgren, Donny Hathaway, Prince, Michael Ruff, and more.
During this time, he played and sang quite a bit around Stockholm. For a number of years, he played the piano for several choirs, including the Immanuel Gospel Choir and the Stockholm East Gospel Choir. Playing and singing gospel was a fantastic learning experience.
Andreas was also a member of the group Funkisch. Even though it was not trendy at that time, he wrote and played funk and fusion music with them. The band didn’t care about popularity, though; their main driving force was simply to have a good time.
It was when Andreas met with songwriter and producer Brian Hobbs (Eidolon Productions) that a collaboration started, which has since resulted in a ton of great songs and productions, as well as a strong friendship.
Andreas has been recorded by Italian superstar Laura Pausini, and has worked with both Spanish artist Rosa Lopez and Gary Valenciano from the Philippines, just to name a few of his connections.
