About

Jonas Lindberg & The Other Side is a Progressive rock project from Stockholm, Sweden founded in 2012 by bassplayer, songwriter and producer Jonas Lindberg.

It all started back in 2008 when the EP "IN SECRET PACE" was recorded by Jonas as an exam-project at the college of Music in Piteå, Sweden. The first recordings featured a large lineup of musicians and was originally intended to work as a demo for an upcoming band. But as term ended Jonas moved to Stockholm to pursue a career as a freelance musician and the idea got put on hold. In 2012 "IN SECRET PACE" was finally released on digital platforms as Jonas started to work on new material. 

This time the lineup featured a 5 piece band and the second EP "THE OTHER SIDE" was finished and released in 2013. The project was named "JONAS LINDBERG & THE OTHER SIDE" from the title track of the album after its release. Playing on the album is Jonas LINDBERG on bass, backing vocals, keyboards and guitars together with Jonas SUNDQVIST (lead vocals), Jonathan LUNDBERG (drums), Calle STÅLENBRING (guitars) and Michael OTTOSSON (keyboards). Two more musicians, Nicklas THELIN (guitar) and Jenny SANDGREN (vocal) later joined for the live shows. 

Following the enthusiastic reception of the 2016 album "PATHFINDER", Jonas began working on another full length album in 2019. The album - called "MILES FROM NOWHERE" - is more of a solo effort than the previous album with Jonas playing most of the instruments himself, and also features a few more guest musicians. Returning on a few tracks is Simon WILHELMSSON (drums) who some may remember from the first EP, as well as Jonas's brother Joel on lead guitar. Missing is Michael OTTOSSON who sadly passed away in 2020, leading up to Jonas taking on full keyboard duties.
