Karl Vento

For more than a decade, Karl Vento has appeared as an indispensable backing musician to artists such as Anna von Hausswolff, Sumie, The Mary Onettes & Albert af Ekenstam. With Rainbow Lights, he has made his debut as a soloartist.

The album features a dreamy, swaying soundscape characterized by Karl Vento's disarming vocals & equilibristic guitar playing, and where concepts such as self-examination and the liberation from ones own past make out the major themes. Rainbow Lights was recorded with producer Filip Leyman (Anna von Hausswolff, Erki Pärnoja, Sumie, Albert af Ekenstam) and released through Karls Ventos own label Perseiderna Records.
