What is Hemifrån and what can Hemifrån do for you?
Hemifrån is an independent A&R, promotion and marketing company, based in the heart of Sweden, specializing in, what we call, “gut music” – The kind of music that you can feel in your gut, no matter if it’s power pop, soft singer-songwriter, heavy rock, blues, gentle westcoast-pop, country, AOR, jazz, americana, electronica or just plain, simple, good ol' rock’n’roll.....
Hemifrån is working with the traditional way of distribution, sales, promotion and marketing, but due to the rapidly changing situation on the music scene, we’re constantly exploring other possibilities.
Hemifrån is the best guarantee to you give you as much exposure as possible, at a reasonable price.
To visit Hemifrån should be like visiting your best friend. Sit yourself down in the livingroom's most comfortable chair, take a close look at the record collection, feel the atmosphere, ask your questions, get your answers, find things you weren’t even aware of existing, get caught of the ever aspiring enthusiasm of your best friend, and get back here again, and again, and again, and again, and again.....

Hemifrån’s main targets :
In all of Europe there is a limited, but substantial, group of people, still very much interested in purchasing music (physical product, streaming and/or downloads). It’s pretty safe to say that this group is doing rather well, economically, got money to spend on music, got computers, are using the internet to gather information, etc, etc......

"Peter Holmstedt is a knowledgable, hard-working guy who knows the music of 2013 like Brian Epstein knew the music of 1963. My bands the Coal Porters and the Long Ryders have used him in the past for promoting the band's activities and we will again in the future. I think the world of Peter, he is easy to work with and a pleasure to know." ~ Sid Griffin
