Love in Stockholm
Love in Stockholm Representing five states and seven instruments among them, this Rock 'n Soul band has called Boston home since their formation in September of 2006. Raised in the house parties and dive bars of Allston, the band even has a song that bears the namesake of the town they love. They soon gained a reputation for their wild live performances, complete with blasting horns and frontman Charlie Rockwell's guttural wail. The album hit stores in early October and sold over 100 copies in a month. It's also been generating press and blog buzz. The Boston Phoenix calls the album "the only [Boston] release akin to the Black Crowes' The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion." Boston Band Crush calls Charlie Rockwell "an armed and fully-functioning singing battlestation" and notes the "wild talent" and "shared soul" of the band. Ryan's Smashing Life says "their brand of popular soul, ironic lyrics and intimate storytelling hasn't been lost on New England music fans."

With the record getting rotation on college radio stations all over the country, LiS now embarks on their biggest tour to date that will take them out of the Northeast and halfway across the country. This summer is a busy one for Love in Stockholm and promises to break open doors for the Boston group. "We feel like we're right on the cusp, and that's an exciting feeling," says Rockwell. "We have no idea what happens next."
