Rickard och Juvelerna

In the fall of 2011, Rickard och Juvelerna was gathered for the first time, in a small village on the Island of Orust, close to the sea and the summer.


Two boys from the city of Gothenburg and three friends from the Island decided to tell stories about life, journeys, dreams, disappointments, love and happiness.


Rickard Nilsson wanted to sing and tell.

Jakobp Bolinder slapped the baseguitar.

Joel Gunnarsson wanted to play the electricguitar.

Joel Samsjö touched the piano.

Joel Andersson banged the drums.


So many J:s, so many Joels, we thought about Jewels…Jewels in Swedish is Juveler…So there it was Rickard och Juvelerna, Rickard and the Jewels.


Our mission became music that had something real to tell you, real and important.

Melodies disigned to carry the salty winds from the shores of the great Island of Orust all the way to the dirty streets of Gothenburg, and back again.

Then the band just flew.

Played on Clubs, wrote songs.

Told that special story about that dream of the best life.

The hunt for happiness and the love for faithful friends.


Daniel “Hurricane” Gilbert ran into the band one day during wintertime. We recognized ourselves in eachother and Mr Gilbert produced the debut album.


With feet steady on the Westcoast Island of Orust, as well as on the rumbling streets of Gothenburg, Rickard och Juvelerna are there. They have something to tell you.
