Artist Biography by

Formed in 2008 around the talents of childhood friends Erik Ekblad, Hampus Johansson, Johan Nelén, and Erik Johansson, energetic Swedish synth pop/rockers State of Grace made their live debut in 2010 opening for classic rock greats Status Quo. The group's debut long-player, Gospels in the Wine, arrived that same year, and in 2011 the quartet won the prestigious Livekarusellen (Swedish battle of the bands) and embarked on a fruitful regional tour that included stops in Germany and Finland. State of Grace continued to tour throughout 2012 and 2013, sharing stages with the likes of Soundtrack of Our Lives, Melody Club, and Brolle before heading back into the studio to put the finishing touches on their sophomore outing, 2014's Musichelp-issued Universal Remedy.
