    Andreas Rydman bio:


    Musician and composer Andreas Rydman was born and raised in the village of Granö, in the middle of the woods of north Sweden. He grew up listening to the music of Elvis and Chuck Berry and was immediately drawn to the guitar playing. In his early teens he discovered AC/DC, Van Halen and Jimi Hendrix and decided to pick up a guitar and become a guitarist. 

    Since then Andreas has played with many of Swedens most highly acclaimed artists such as Ane Brun, Tommy Nilsson, Jonas Knutsson and many more.  He has also released a highly acclaimed solo album named Simply amplified.
    Besides acoustic and electric guitar Rydman plays, Dobro, Weisenborn, lap steel and steel guitar.

    Andreas has toured all over the world playing in over 50 countries. Writing and playing in different projects, Andreas found himself often drawn to blues and roots music. Co-writing Country music songs introduced him to the Americana style with influences such as Brad Paisley, Sonny Landreth, Bill Frisell, to name a few.
