Peter Carlsohn, may be best known for being bassist in legendary rock band Jerusalem, is announcing his debut album “Out of the Blue”, which will be released on August 7th, 2020, via the record label JONO, and distributed by Sound Pollution under the name Peter Carlsohn’s The Rise.

Peter Carlsohn’s upcoming album; “Out of the Blue” is his debut album as a solo artist, but there are quite some years of experience behind this project. 

Peter began his musical career in the 70s, and joined the legendary Christian rock band Jerusalem in 1980. He has recorded several albums with the band, and toured all over the world. He is also bassist for Rune Edvardsen & Red Band, and member of the band XT, with band members Björn Stigsson (Leviticus), Sonny Larsson (Motherlode), Dan Tibell (Jerusalem) and Thomas Weinesjö (Veni Domine, Cell 9, Nubian Rose).

Now he has his mind set for new adventures, with this solo project called Peter Carlsohn’s The Rise, which is a gathering of other experienced musicians, like Michael Ulvsgärd (Jerusalem), Stephen Carlson (CarlsMo, Gil Edwards, Hilde Halseth, Chakra), his brother Lars Carlsohn, Svenne Jansson (Glam, Golden Resurrection, Jerusalem), and Cutta John Kåre Gullestad (Cutta, Crush, Rune Edvardsen & Red Band, Steven K Band, Heartless).

The music is melodic, but not too well-polished hard rock, easy to sing along with. Peter plays the bass guitar, and sings lead vocals on all the songs. 

“I am very happy with this project! These are songs from my heart”, says Peter and continues: “We have had a great time making this album, and I am so thankful to my wonderful music-friends, who helped me to put this record together”, Peter concludes.

“Out of the Blue” is written, arranged and produced by Peter Carlsohn, recorded by John Robin Skagerlind (Kid Million), mixed by Tobias Lindell (Europe, Mustasch, Avatar, H.E.A.T, Hardcore Superstar, Firewind/GusG, etc.), and mastered by Thomas ”Plec” Johansson (Firewind, GusG, Ia Eklundh, Soilwork, Dynazty, H.E.A.T, Narnia, etc.), and will be released by JONO/PCM Music via Sound Pollution on August 7th, 2020.
