David Myhr took his first steps into the music business with legendary Swedish band, The Merrymakers.
Though a well-kept secret in their home country, The Merrymakers went on to sell more than 100,000 albums following a series of radio hits in Japan and their music gained influential fans around the world. Most famously, Andy Sturmer of Jellyfish came on board to drum and co-produce their second album "Bubblegun" - a bench-mark album of it's time. Following it's US release and success at college radio the inevitable touring saw the band taste success first-hand in America.
The following years saw Myhr & Co distracted by their demand as sought-after producers and songwriters for a string of Japanese pop stars. In 2010 the mutual decision to dissolve the dormant Merrymakers left Myhr, and his songs, free to step back into the spotlight alone.
"Soundshine", the stunning debut solo album by David Myhr, is out now.
