Jack L. Stroem is the newest up and coming artist in Gothenburg's Rock scene, taking influences from old bands such as Rainbow, Judas Priest and Genesis mixing it with a modern heavy alt-rock sound. He has always been a musician at heart, smashing his mother's mandolin while watching Deep Purple - California Jam at age 4, picking up the guitar some years later and singing shortly thereafter. Slowly building up a name for himself Jack went to Tommy Reinxeed (Sabaton, Reinxeed) and Christian Liljegren (Narnia).
