Product Description

Product Description

Behold! Swedish power-pop hero David Myhr, formerly of six-figure unit shifters The Merrymakers, has returned to our ears!As front-man of the legendary melody-packed harmony-laden combo, Myhr led the new-wave of guitar-heavy pop that greatly contributed to Sweden s heritage as the mecca of melody in the 90 s. Now launch- ing his debut solo record Soundshine, Myhr builds on the foundations of his former band to deliver a modern pop record with its roots firmly in the classic songwriting of the 60 s & 70 s. Though a well-kept secret in their home country The Merrymakers conquered Japan, made in-roads into Europe and a serious dent in US college radio, picking up many an influential fan along the way. Most famously, Andy Sturmer of legendary combo Jellyfish came on board to drum and co-produce their second album "Bubblegun" - a bench- mark album of its time. The following years saw Myhr & Co distracted by their demand as sought-after producers and songwriters for a string of Japanese pop stars but in 2010 the mutual decision to dissolve the dormant Merry- makers left Myhr, and his songs, free to step back into the spotlight alone. I love that tingling down the spine when I hear a great song when superior craftsmanship meets the magic. I constantly strive for that feeling - that moment - with my own songs , says David. From the open piano bars of Never Mine to the album-closing chaos of Ride Along , Soundshine is as if a guide-book on pop perfection. Stupidly infectious hooks, smart lyrics, sweet harmonies, killer riffs and dynamic production - it s clear that David Myhr knows what he s doing when it comes to making an album that grabs the listeners attention. Collaborators on the Soundshine include Swedish pop-allies Peter Morén (of Peter Bjorn and John) and Andreas Dahlbäck (Anna Tern- heim, The Motorhomes, Eskobar), who co-produced the album as well as playing drums. Forget about tabloid celebrity scandals, abandon docu-soaps, dismiss the ironic hipsters, this album is about the songs and oh what songs! Soundshine is chock-full of fantastic pop, delivering one masterful melody after another. Written with charm, performed with passion and recorded with flair, such smart uplifting music can only brighten our lives. David Myhr is back. All hail melody!

Already being hailed as one of the best pop records of 2012. David Myhr brings together his Jellyfish influences and has managed to self pen a dozen pop songs, all different with superb melodies - unlike other records this never drops off the pace. Some 'pop combos' would give an arm & leg for songs of this quality.

I hadn't heard of David Myhr before but having read the great reviews of this record I was convinced that I would like it and I was wrong. I absolutely love it! Shiny, happy, catchy tunes, perfect for the warm July 2013 weather. Not a bad track but the first five are instantly hummable and standout tracks. if you like Jellyfish, Fountains of Wayne, Nada Surf and other power pop bands then you will love this. A crime the guy isn't much heard of outside of his native Sweden as he should be huge. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Contender for Best Power Pop CD of 2013 3 Dec. 2013
By rockisland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Delightful power pop with carefully crafted hooks and melodies combined with fine lyrics. The CD found its way into continous heavy rotation in my car for weeks on end and doesnt tire. Every time I thought of changing it, I struggled to think of a current CD that could match up to the aural pleasantries of Soundshine. The production has a fresh "live" feel which is real "easy on the ears". It doesnt suffer from over production of many digital recordings these days.makes you want to listen to it repeatedly . The music is not overly derivative either - Myhr sings in an upbeat, confident voice with occasional homage to ELO, Brian Wilson, Katrina and the Waves and Macca. A solid contender for best power pop CD of the year.
3.0 out of 5 stars 'Two Thumbs Up' 25 May 2012
By the Iconoclast - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My god,might there be some people who understand how to compose and record actual music again? This CD is kicking it 'old school'. Yes,a return to actual Top 40 music! If you are like me and demand melody,catchy hooks and harmony then give this CD a listen. The only thing that I can suggest for Mr.Myhr's next CD is to listen to JellyFish/Roger Joseph Manning Jr. and listen to how melodic their verses are.

Read my review of "Never Mine" and you'll find out I was a fan from the get go.
I love this music. (I loved Merrymakers) and eagerly await the next one.
If you like this, check out Josh Fix as well. Proof again, Pop can be a beautiful thing, if you dig deep enough for the gems.
