Welcome Benjamin Olsson!

Christoffer Olsson with his newborn son, BenjaminChristoffer Olsson, guitarist and lead singer with G2, is celebrating the birth of his son, Benjamin, born earlier this month.

G2 banjo picker Jens Koch shared this photo of Christoffer and Benjamin, along with some band news from their home in Sweden. He says that the guys are about to start recording a new album.

“The cold winter slows things down a bit here, but we’re busy working on new material and it looks like all the songs except one will be originals, about 70% written within the band. This time we have some co-writes with people outside of the band and some originals from other people. I think this new CD will have a tougher and a bit more aggressive attitude, and the songs are a bit more varied.”

Jens says that will be tracking at Cosmos Studios in Stockholm, and hoping to have Brent Truitt help with the final mixing.

He says that the new project should be released in June ’09.

Congratulations to Christoffer and Belinda from Bluegrass Today!
