STO Cultr signs with EMI

EMI Sweden/Universal has just signed the Swedish duo Sto Cultr. They were previously signed to the Universal label Enter Records, a joint venture between Universal Sweden, Universal Germany and the e-gaming powerhouse ESL but when ESL pulled out due to the pandemic where no arena events etc the label seized to exist. During the short period with Enter, Sto Cultr released a few singles that has streamed in excess of 4 million. Now a new chapter starts with EMI Sweden/Universal and new material in the loop. Sto Cultr is Julimar Santos (former rap artist J-Son) och Carl Björsell. They met while writing/producing for other artist and a special musical chemistry emerged… So they formed Sto Cultr (Sto is short for Stockholm). They have previously (and in some cases still) worked with artists like Little Mix, Pitbull, Steve Aoki, Timbuktu, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Celine Dion, One Direction plus more. But now all focus is on Sto Cultr!

Miriam Bryant selected as this year’s Ulla Billquist scholar!

Congratulations Miriam Bryant who today received this year’s Ulla Billquist scholarship! The award is handed out in commemoration of Ulla Billquist’s legacy and to support Swedish artists.

”När hon sjunger så lyssnar man. Det finns en styrka, en tydlighet, som ibland nästan övergår i vrede för att strax förvandlas till något skört och sårbart. Det ärliga och personliga anslaget bidrar till det starka uttrycket och gör att vi som publik upplever något bortom det traditionella och vardagliga. I olika sammanhang har hon visat ett stort socialt engagemang och tydligt tagit avstånd från missförhållanden vilket stärker bilden av en unik person som skapat sig en plats i den svenska musikhistorien. Detta och mycket mer gör Miriam Bryant till en självklar mottagare av 2020-års Ulla Billquist-stipendium.”
