Instead, there are higher demands in terms of comfortable, creative workplaces. Acoustic Magazine had the chance to talk to Louise about studios, music and how she works today.
Louise Hoffsten got her big breakthrough in 1993 with hit songs such as “Let the Best Man Win”, and in the same year she won the Grammy award for best female artist. This year saw the release of her twentieth album which deals with life in the shadows. In the 90s, Louise was diagnosed with MS. Today she is a role model for many people because of the way she has continued to work in spite of the condition.
Stefan Örn is one of Sweden’s most successful songwriters and producers, known for his successes in the annual Melodifestivalen music competition, where he worked with artists like Carola, Loreen and Louise Hoffsten. Stefan has also worked with Anders Bagge and made music for artists including Madonna, Janet Jackson, Céline Dion and Enrique Iglesias.
