John Holmström is a Swedish pianist who works in a broad spectra of improvised music. With one foot in more traditional jazz and the other in free improvised music he tries to create something in between, inside and above everything. Not because it´s a search for new unexplored territory within improvised music, but just because he can’t help not to.

As a student of classical music he tries to expand and include the works and language of the old masters in his music but approaches music from his roots as an MC within hip-hop and that of an marital arts fighter.

John has travelled the world playing his music and is known for his work within bands like Dark Horse, Om Tat Sat and Hurrakel.
