My apologies but as you can probably see this site is longer being updated. If you’d like to see what the former writer is up to now then check out Homeli, a rather splendacious design blog.

Song: Joakim Emanuel – It’s Not For Me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msXt7jbVHcc


My name is Joakim Wasserman and Im from Sweden and I make music. My artist name is Joakim Emanuel. I have just released my debutsingel ”It aint for me” that is the genre rock influenced by Jimi Hendrix, reggae, soul, John Mayer, and some touch of folk rock. The song is rock but yet soulful according to me, with some reggae rhythms. My music reminds a lot of 70’s rock music, but today I would say that there is not much music that sounds like me. Not famous anyway.

I email around to any blogs and people in the hope that somebody might like the song and promote it on its website. What’s a little special about me is that I write, produce and record everything myself. I play all instruments and sing and write the lyrics, but I would point out that the instrumental is my strong side. My main instrument is guitar right now but for 10 years I have played mostly drums but also bass in several bands. In recent years, I have focused on the guitar because it gives the most room for expression. So that maybe is a bit unique, all music and all mixing and mastering I have done myself. No one else is involved in any step of my productions.

I send this song hoping to reach out to more people and maybe be discovered by more people who can listen. Not in terms of becoming famous when I actually completely dont care about being famous and actually I dont want to get famous. I just want to make my music, my passion and I see it as my life art. I dream of working with music somehow in my future. I hope you take your time to listen! Maybe it’s not your taste, but I do not think you’ll think it’s bad music anyway.

P.S. I also do music under the name Ölbjörnen, which is more pop, house and electro music.
