John Lönnmyr is a rock keyboardist and composer based in Gothenburg, Sweden. He started playing the violin at the age of 8, and by 11, he was exploring the piano on his own.
In his teens, John discovered progressive rock and jazz, which eventually led him to study classical piano and composition.
In 1996, he formed Valinor’s Tree with his childhood friends and later he joined Stefan Renström’s Simon Says in 2009. Both of these rock bands are well-established in the Swedish progressive music scene.
John has also composed music for musical theater and dance performances. He has arranged numerous pieces of music for choirs and symphony orchestras as well.
John has played with jazz and free improvising groups like Monochromatics and Thymeshift. He is also the Hammond organ player for his blues trio Aunt Nancy and psych-rockers Divers.
Since 2019, John has been a member of The Night Flight Orchestra.
He released his first solo album, ”Ristor,” in 2020, which he entirely created with a modular synth.
John’s second solo album, ”Aftonland,” released in November 2023, features instrumental progressive rock with a Nordic touch and a strong focus on keyboards.
