Skivan har fått betyget 4
”Lars Bygdén has for long been an artist that not so many have heard about, but with the new realese ”LB”, chances are that a bigger audience will hear about him.”

Skivan har fått betyget 4

 ”For long Lars Bygdén have mostly been a concern for a spare crowd, but now I wonder if the breakthrough on a wider scale is bound to come. Because LB is by far the best Lars have done, both melody- and lyric wise.”

Free song for facebook fans

You can downlaod a free song from the LB-sessions. Just follow this link, like my facebook-page and there you go.

The song is callaed ”Take it easy” and no it’s not an Eagles-cover. It features amazing Sharon Vaughn on vocals and it was just an inch from making it on to the album.
