Spacewalk / Bio

Spacewalk is an award-winning singer-songwriter, composer and producer based in Sweden. Although his music tends to defy categorization, it ultimately falls into the alternative genre as he intricately blends the acoustic elements of indie folk with electronic visions of neo-psychedelia, trip-hop and experimental rock. "Spaciousness, the atmospheric tonality, hypnotic harmonies and melodic contours of the compositions take you to places that you don't want to leave."

Spacewalk came into being as the musical journey of a passionate seclusive guy who dares to touch his father's dusty worn-out Alhambra in his late teens and steps into the realm of magic. At the time, the bitter reality of the systematic philistinism of the totalitarian establishment is silently cancelled out by a young vibrant underground network of talented musicians and connoisseurs in his hometown, Tehran. Being a part of such a creative community, Spacewalk's music develops in originality as he starts writing his own material and soon he is awarded as a finalist in the Song of The Year™ International songwriting contest.

In 2009, Spacewalk records his first EP in independent underground studios including his own home studio in Tehran, Iran. The publication of "Your Rainbows After My Acid Rain" is challenged by predictable legal obstacles which motivates him to release it D.I.Y both digitally and physically. In the end, the culmination of his efforts pays off and his music is generally well received especially after being aired by numerous radio stations including BBC Introducing™ and WFMU™.

After moving to Sweden to pursue his passion, he releases his second EP "Placebo Effect" in summer 2011 on the leading digital outlets and streaming services. Acoustically recorded, this collection comprises guitars, piano and vocal harmonies to "paint a great picture in his story-telling which captures and holds the listener's attention". He has performed numerous shows in different countries including England, Sweden and Spain both solo and in collaboration with other artists. He finished writing his new material last spring and is currently recording his first full album which is planned to be released in Spring 2016.
