Tore Johansson - Writer / Producer / Mixer

With a background as a musician and songwriter, Tore gained a huge amount of experience in his early career by playing in local bands as a guitarist / bass-player / singer / songwriter in Malmo in his native Sweden. In the early 90s he started Tambourine Studios where in 1994 he recorded The Cardigans‘ debut album. Since then he has gone on to produce all their hits and a total of six albums.

Tore produced the eponymous debut album for Franz Ferdinand including the singles “Take Me Out”, “The Dark Of The MatinĂ©e”, “Darts of Pleasure” and “Michael”. The album sold more than four million copies world-wide and garnered much critical acclaim. Tore won two separate Producer of the Year awards for his work on the album.

Tore has also produced hits for OK GO (including the tracks which accompany their two most famous videos) and tracks for Wild Beasts, St Etienne, Martha Wainwright and Nicole Atkins. More recently he has worked with The Wombats and Dutch superstar Anouk, producing her double platinum album “For Bitter Or Worse”.
