"That simple sequence of tones can touch and grip you, inspiring me to explore and develop the idea further."
Instrumental with inspiration from both the inner and outer world
The Hammerstones' musical journey began when Tommy Hammarsten wanted to express his feelings to his then-girlfriend through a song. He found music to be a powerful form of expression and realized that with melodies and tones, he could touch other people's hearts. The song became the starting point for his music creation.
Today, The Hammerstones' music can be described as a powerful fusion of instrumental, electric guitar music inspired by both external and internal experiences. One of the strongest music memories for The Hammerstones was when he had the opportunity to witness a live concert by none other than Cliff Richard & the Shadows in Stockholm. For him, it was an unforgettable and almost magical experience that has provided much inspiration for the music he creates.
Creating songs by exploring chord progressions
When we asked what is the most enjoyable part of creating music, he replied, "When you come up with a new chord progression that can develop into a new song. It's like stumbling upon a musical treasure. That simple sequence of tones can touch and grip you, inspiring me to explore and develop the idea further."
The Hammerstones have always had a vision of reaching as many people as possible. For him, music is a tool to communicate emotions, share stories, and positively impact lives. By continuing to grow as a music creator, he hopes to reach a wider audience and touch more peoples hearts with his storytelling.
