Biography

Peter Jöback has established himself as one of the most prolific and respected Swedish artists – an extraordinary performer with an amazing voice. A platinumselling recording artist combined with extensive performances on stage and TV in Scandinavia and London’s West End, Peter Jöback is also a highly regarded name internationally.

In January 2009 Peter moved to New York to get new inspiration and make new aquiantances. This has resulted in an album entitled “East Side Stories”, recorded in Woodstock, featuring prominent guests such as Kate Pierson from B52’s, Sia Furler, Gail Ann Dorsey and the group Betty. The album will be released later this fall.

Peter ended 2008 with a sold-out Christmas tour in arenas in Scandinavia following the release of a new 4x platinum selling Christmas album. In 2007 he also toured Scandinavia with his platinum-selling studio album with original songs co-written by Peter.

2006-2007 Peter starred as the MC in a highly successful production of the classic Cabaret in Stockholm and Gothenburg. He received massive critical praise as well as his second Golden Mask (Tony Award. Peter was a creative force in this production as he already in 2003 gave a stunning performance as the MC at Gladsaxe Theatre in Copenhagen.

Peter’s double-cd with a collection of songs from his extensive career has spent no less than nine weeks as No. 1 in the Swedish charts, well passing platinum status and making Peter the best selling artist of all 2006. The album is also a gold album in Norway.

Peter Jöback got his big break through his collaboration with ABBA legends Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson. In their epic musical “Kristina från Duvemåla” (The Emigrants) Peter created the role of “Robert” and his theme song “Guldet blev till sand” broke every record in the Swedish charts. The musical was seen by over 1 milion Swedes and the original cast CD-box became a tripple-platinum album and received several Swedish grammy awards. Peter received his first Golden Mask for his role as Robert.

Cameron Macintosh early discovered Peter’s talent and offered him the lead as “Chris” in Miss Saigon at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London’s West End in 1997. Three years later at the same theatre, Peter created the role of “Michael” in Macintosh’s original production of “The Witches of Eastwick”.

Peter has combined his theatre work with concerts, tours, one-man-shows and albums, both in Swedish and in English. As a recording artist, Peter has been awarded gold- and platinum discs for all of his releases as well as several Grammy nominations. Peter has the rare ability and talent to excell with both big symphony orchestras as well as with small acoustic settings and he truly captures the audience in both scenes.

His many stage performances and albums have been met with high critical acclaim. In fact, Peter’s very personal Christmas album which was released 2002, is regarded as “The Ultimate Christmas album of all times…” On this album Peter also teamed up with Norwegian superstar Ms Sissel Kyrkjebö in a classic duet of Van Morrison’s “Be though my vision” in a Swedish translation. Peter and Sisssel have since been frequent guests at each other’s concerts.

In 2004 Peter collaborated with the internationally renowned Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Nick Davies in a project called “Storybook” where Peter performed classic songs in brand new arrangements. GSO and Peter released a CD which became a Gold Disc and also did two concert sin the Globe Arena and Scandinavium Arena in Sweden. The album also brought Peter to a superstar status in Norway. His first solo-tour there 2005 was a stunning success both with audience and media.
