Merryweather Stark Biography

It all started when Janne was recording his third Mountain of Power album “Volume Three”. He decided to merge the two songs “Kryptonite” and “Give It Everything We Got” by Neil Merryweather. Janne got in touch with Neil, asking if he thought it was ok. It ended with Neil singing two tracks on the album (not his own songs, though).

 

This then sparked further collaboration and Janne sent Neil a track he had written. It didn’t take more than a few days before Neil had written vocal melodies and words for the song. This was “Babylon Sin City” and now things just started rolling. Janne went to visit Neil at his home and studio in Las Vegas and the two hit it off great! More songs were written, both by Janne and Neil, and they started talking about doing an album together. Grooveyard Records, with whom Janne has released several albums, was all over the new duo and a release is set for July 2017. The drums on the album are handled by Janne’s long time companion (even from back in the late 80s and Overheat, later in Locomotive Breath and also on the Mountain of Power albums) Peter “TrumPeter” Svensson.
