Nora Dalum Nora's Have
"Before working with Johan, I often felt that there was this gap of knowledge that I needed to fill, before I could finish my songs.
I thought I didn't know enough about production, mixing and writing drum beats. I found out that I was already capable of all that.
With help from Ransby, I produced my first album and wrote 5 new songs - but more importantly, I learned that I actually do have a valid opinion about even the release time of the compressor."
"Johan has helped me in so many incredible ways as a friend, coach, creative mentor, and as a producer for my debut album.
For me, Johan has been an important person in every aspect of daring to create the music that I am so passionate about.
He has pushed me to keep going when I've hesitated, twisted and turned, and made excuses to give up.
To me, a good teacher is not someone who just agrees with you, but someone who sees beyond the procrastination and helps coax it out. And in my opinion, that is Johan's strongest asset.
So if you have a musical project that you're unsure how to progress with, Johan is my first recommendation as a helper."
"I have been writing and producing music for more than 16 years, worked in a major commercial studio, played shows in a lot of bands , recording and release my own music.
I initially contacted Johan to evolve my guitar playing into a more jazz-oriented style of practice, but it soon became clear that we had much more to talk about - through our talks he opened my ears to become a better listener. That has helped me to have a better understanding of my own music and why I do it.
Highly recommended for every artist, singer, player, or producer - at every level."
"After a weekend of learning I can wholeheartedly recommend Johan Granberg to teach all skill levels of musicianship. Johan is a very idealistic and passionate musician who’s commitment to the core of art (to invoke feelings in you and others) can benefit anyone - and thankfully not just result wise, but even more so in terms of process. If you go in with an open mind, I am sure you will learn a lot about yourself and your music.
In my case I struggled with finishing songs and I didn’t know why - Johan helped me at the level I was at and taught me methods to stay in touch with my own songs, and keep my vocal performances attentive and personal - that also resulted in me enjoying the recording process much more. Johans passion for what he does makes sure that he will tackle your challenges like they were his own - which also means that he might question your thought process or methods - I urge you to take that conversation."
“Johan has helped me to step out of my comfort zone when necessary and has assisted me in thinking more creatively. He has also supported me in seeing projects through to the end.”
