Behind the Elevener moniker are hiding two Swedish musicians who have known each other since their childhood. During the second half of the 80s they have been playing in numerous bands together before both of them wanted to pursue other musical adventures. While Johan Bergquist developed his love for progrock throughout the 90s, Andreas Brod?n mainly made a name for himself as session guitarist in Stockholm. Best known is Bergquist though.
Not only has he been lead singer and keyboardist for Swedish progsters Scenario, he has also appeared - as keyboard player - on albums from HammerFall (Crimson Thunder), Stefan Elmgren (Full Strike) and more recently M.ILL.ION (Kingsize and Thrill Of The Chase). At the dawn of the millennium Johan and Andreas got together again and soon returned to the music they grew up with. New songs in a classic AOR/melodic rock vein were written and in 2005 Elevener was born.
