Swedish “pop” music industry in crisis

Written by Lars-Erik_Olson on May 28, 2001 to .

NEW YORK - Recording industry trade magazine Billboard published a front page article in last week’s edition in which they wrote about the current state of pop music in Sweden - with the focus being on music exports - and stated that there were no obvious candidates ready to follow in the footsteps of ABBA, Roxette, Ace of Base, and the Cardigans.

  Artists mentioned as having potential included Infinite Mass, Daniel Lemma, Backyard Babies, Lisa Miskovsky, Nina Persson and Titiyo.

  Billboard’s story was picked up in today’s issue of the Swedish newspaper Expressen.
