Harry Sommerdahl

For Harry Sommerdahl, music has always been the main focus. His musical training started when he began taking private piano lessons at the age of 7. He continued to study privately until the age of 16 when he was accepted at Södra Latin School of Music in Stockholm. After studying there for three years, Harry became a freelance musician (keyboards, piano) and a studio session player. This, in combination with his vocal arranging skills allowed him to do session work for a wide variety of artists including Michael Bolton, Paul Stanley and Celine Dion.


He started his songwriter/producer career in 1995 working with Swedish artist Robyn on her debut album which sold platinum in the US with 1,5 million copies sold.
In 1999, Harry signed a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing in Stockholm and has been signed there until he signed a new deal with The Kennel/Universal Music Publishing in 2016.


Harry has had several top 10's all over the world through his career as a producer and songwriter as well as writing with top producers and songwriters like Desmond Child.
