Hi, my name is Krister Axel. I am a roots-rock veteran of the indie music scene, and I have a degree in Poetry. I am a published lyricist, composer, and songwriter. I am also a software engineer. When my last tech contract expired, I decided to start a blog and see what might happen. Many artists and song features later, I have found a niche bringing a unique writing style together with a passion for elevating music and musicians from around the world - some that are already established, and some that are just starting out. My own songs are licensed exclusively through VisionWorks Music.
We make the best lyric videos in the business.
Select submissions for blog coverage get a lyric video (time permitting).
I love writing lyrics. My good friend Zoë Renée Roché was working on an update for the theme to Lonesome Dove, written by her father, and I happened to be in Los Angeles at the time. I was staying at the Georgian hotel, it was a perfect day, and in about an hour I had written 2 verses and a pre-chorus. Read the lyrics here.
Laurie Heuston contacted me after seeing our calendar listing, and wrote the piece for a Thursday release with the Tempo insert. The subsequent show at Belle Fiore was fully booked. I also played 2 songs live on the Weissenborn in the Rosebud studios.
What a trip.
After 2 great sets at Luck Ranch we started getting ready for our show at Austin City Limits. We performed on the Tito stage, who I met briefly and seemed like a very cool guy.more info
