Press Kit for Vide Geiger
BIO for VIDE GEIGER
Vide Geiger has written and performed music, styled by pop, world, blues and folk, for over 20 years. Influenced by Peter Gabriel, Dave Matthews Band and Pink Floyd, Vide Geiger takes the listener on a journey that’s both unique and inspiring.
In 2010 he released the singles Stones and Brown Grass, following up with You've Come Home in 2012 and Let It Flow in 2014. His EP Full Steam Ahead, with the same title track was released in early 2017 with a release party in Simrishamn, Sweden.
The same year the single Conflated was released.
The journey started in New Hampshire when Vide’s dad gave him his first guitar at the age of 14. He joined his first band, Wunja, at age 16, in the Intentional Community of Skogsnäs in the middle of northern Sweden. He quickly brought his own sound to the band and started composing Swedish folk melodies with underlying styles of rock, blues, funk, jazz.
“About the recording of the debut album: 'Poetic musical beauty is unfolding in what seems to be a very powerful and special musical project being recorded RIGHT HERE at Beyond The Beat Studio. A culmination of many years of hard work and God given talent by all the musicians involved is resulting in a brand new sound. Vide Geiger is at the helm with loads of vision and powerful songs. Hats off to Marlon Pennant, John Allen, laying down the sweetest rhythm short of a time machine ride back to the oh so sweet great sessions of the 70's..! This is very positive stuff and I am over the moon about the whole thing.'”

“We just finished working on a gig with Vide Geiger, who played lead guitar in Vanessa Marie Carter's country band. Vide is a real master on both acoustic and his stratocaster, picked things up incredibly quickly after only a few practices and his performance was flawless. He also has great vocal skills. Most importantly, for a guy who is THAT good, he has no ego - he is both incredibly talented and just a really nice guy, so easy to get along with and he fit in very well with a 5 piece band. Rarely do you see an artist as truly competent as this.”
