    ”Men det här låter ju precis som...” – Om låtskrivande efter given förlaga2016In: Musikforskning i dag, Växjö, 2016, p. 25-25Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna presentation är ett sidoresultat från ett pågående konstnärligt forskningsprojekt i vilket jag från ett inifrån-perspektiv studerar skapandet och formandet av melodier. Här sätts fokus på en speciell nisch inom låtskrivande, nämligen uppdragskomposition inom på förhand bestämda stilistiska ramar.I film- och reklamsammanhang är det ett vanligt tillvägagångssätt för låtskrivare att jobba efter s.k. ”briefs”. Många gånger har regissörer och uppdragsgivare en relativt tydlig bild av vad de är ute efter. Inte sällan finns en specifik förlaga i form av en känd låt som det kanske inte finns budget för att licensiera men som använts som ”temp track”. Det som efterfrågas kan då vara något i samma stil eller en s.k. sound-alike, en låt gjord i syfte att imitera soundet från annan låt eller stilen från en viss artist eller grupp.I presentationen analyserar jag den självupplevda kreativa processen vid tillkomsten av tre låtar som jag skrivit tillsammans med filmmusikkompositören Jimmy Lagnefors; ”Spellbound” från Ulf Malmros kommande biofilm Flykten till framtiden (2016), som enligt briefen skulle låta ”som Electric Light Orchestra ca 1973” samt låtarna ”Vänta inte på mig” och ”Superman” från filmen Micke & Veronica(2015). Presentationen innehåller också exempel från reklamjinglar för kommersiell radio som jag varit med om att komponera bland annat för en taxikedja där uppdraget var att det skulle ”låta som” Magnus Uggla respektive Lill Lindfors.Som underlag för analysen används observationer från kvalitativa fallstudier dokumenterade i realtid med hjälp av både audio och video samt egen självreflexion. Förutom att ta fram tyst kunskap kring låtskrivandeprocessen diskuteras även etiska och upphovsrättsliga aspekter. Presentationen kombinerar audio- och video-illustrationer med klingande exempel framförda live

    What goes on in my mind?: Observing melodies in the makin2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper posits a set of epistemological methods to enable researchers to investigate melody-writing in solo songwriters. Using ethnographic and autoethnographic methods combined with annotated video, I provide examples, from my ongoing research project, of real-time songwriting activities and address the opportunities and challenges of introspection as an investigative method.

     

    Sloboda (1985) proposed four possible methods of inquiry by which researchers might investigate composers’ creative processes, one of which is “live” observation of composers at work. Collins (2007) uses a verbal protocol methodology that requires the composer to narrate the evolving composition in real time, which not only interrupts the creative process itself, but risks falling victim to the observation effect. Bennett (2014) suggests that observing co-writing processes has an immanent advantage over solo writing through the fact that the necessity to communicate ideas makes it an evidence-generating activity.

     

    The methods proposed combine digital video documentation, immediate post-hoc introspection and qualitative data analysis. The songwriting session is recorded in full, followed by immediate post-session review and captioning of identified ‘key moments’.  This enables the composer to reflect immediately upon the session, adding extra insight such as explaining moments of silence/reflection that would be otherwise lost in the observation.

    Beyond Belief: A tribute to Elvis Costello ("Veronica")2015Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    David Myhr's own inimitable take on Elvis Costello’s 1989 classic “Veronica” is track #6 on the American compilation “Beyond Belief: A tribute to Elvis Costello“. Other contributors included Matthew Sweet, The Rubinoos and Mike Viola. The highly recommended compilation is out on Spyder Records and the proceedings goes to charity. The compilation is co-produced by producer, musician, author and reviewer John Borack and Olivia Frain who invited a series of groups and artists from all over the world (of the power pop genre) from whom they selected the 50 that finally made it on to the album. They later found a partner in record label Spyder Pop Records who took care of the release. 100% of the proceeds from the Spyderpop release will go to the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation (founded by the late composer Michael Kamen) and help put musical instruments into the hands of children in underserved areas. This fundraising album is going towards a great cause and deserves to be in your personal music collection.“Veronica” was co-written with Paul McCartney and Myhr declares it his favourite Costello song in no small part influenced by his life-long obsession with The Beatles.Though “Veronica” was Costello’s most successful song in the US it has so far been covered by very few artists (this may be the first time that a cover version finds its way out onto Spotify).“Veronica”(Elvis Costello / Paul McCartney)David Myhr – lead and background vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, harpsichord, glockenspielAndreas Dahlbäck – drums, tambourineRikard Lidhamn – bassMarcus Olsson – piano, organAnders Pettersson – electric guitarElin Andersson – trumpetProduced by David MyhrEngineered by Raoul Hamilton, Petter Näse, and David Myhr.

    Boom Boom Beat: Japanese only bonus track2011Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With only two days left to the world premiere release of my album Soundshine in Japan I am happy to share with you a glimpse from the recording of an exclusive Japan only bonus track called “Boom Boom Beat”. It was originally written for Puffy so this is my “cover version”. (First time ever I make a cover of my own song!) The basic tracks were recorded at the drummer Andreas Dahlbäck’s Durango Recording in Stockholm together with Rikard Lidhamn on bass and Anders Pettersson on guitar, and vocal overdubs and mix were made at Marcus Black’s Jelly Road Studio also in Stockholm. On this track I am fortunate enough to have Puffy themselves contributing background vocals (thank you so much Puffy!!!). Their vocals were recorded in Tokyo and unfortunately I didn’t have the possibility to “stop by” and capture that moment with my iPhone (which is the case with the rest of the material). So the video will be somewhat male-dominated. Anyway – hope you like it! The only place that you can get hold of “Boom Boom Beat” is on the Japanese version of Soundshine which will be released on Dec 7, 2011, on Thistime Records.

    Bubblegun1998Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Review by Stanton SwihartBy this point in their career, it seems as if the duo of Anders Hellgren and David Myhr should have four or five acclaimed releases under their belts and be household names in the world of pop music. Bubblegun, however, is only the Merrymakers' second full-length album (and their first in the U.S.), though they have been making unabashedly joyous and pretty pop since 1991. Their first album, No Sleep 'til Famous, brought the comparatively innocent and clear-eyed pop of the '60s into the '90s via a sophisticated and clean production. The band does the same on Bubblegun, crafting a set of songs that sound as if they could all be singles. Undoubtedly, many of them would have been hits in the era from which they glean their influences, but the Merrymakers are not a retro act; they simply write gorgeous, catchy pop songs that are universal, transcending both time and place. Very rarely anymore do choruses explode out of speakers and simply envelop the listener with pure pleasure as do songs such as "Saltwater Drinks," "Troubled Times" and "Superstar." The songs, though they are incredibly melodic and crisply produced, are not in the least vapid. There is an edginess to many of the tracks, and lyrically, the Merrymakers do not shy away from difficult themes: "Monkey in the Middle" and "Superstar" deal with fading fame while the theme of lost love is all over the album ("April's Fool," "Sad," "Ms. Demeanour"). Never, though, does this cause the music or listening experience to drag or grate. Former Jellyfish frontman Andy Sturmer helps out on production on a few songs (and co-wrote a couple cuts), and he is a perfect match for the band. Since this is the band's first American release, Big Deal has added a bonus to the package: a second CD containing five songs from their first album. Those songs have a slightly more trippy feel to them but shine just as brightly as the songs on the first CD. It makes for a virtually flawless pop album: in a perfect world, Bubblegun would make the Merrymakers a household name.

Mellan låtarna delar David med sig av sina rika kunskaper kring gruppen, gärna i form av små anekdoter. Repertoaren för dagen är sällan spikad i förväg utan improviseras fram i en dialog med publiken. Vissa kanske vill njuta av de finstämda klassikerna Yesterday, Let it Be, Michelle och The long and winding road. Andra vill rocka loss till låtar som Can’t buy me love, Twist & Shout och I want to hold your hand. Någon kanske känner för en dos ”flower power” i form av låtar som Lucy in the sky with diamonds, All you need is love eller Strawberry Fields. Eller varför inte sätta David på prov genom att önska en udda singelbaksida eller någon låt från Beatlarnas solokarriärer som t.ex. John Lennons odödliga Imagine.Lennon/McCartney åstadkom tillsammans under the Beatles verksamma en enorm låtskatt vars inflytande på all populärmusik sedan dess inte inte går att överskatta. Deras musik tilltalar såväl gammal som ung och lever vidare från generation till generation. David Myhr är sångare och musiker och har ett förflutet i popbandet the Merrymakers. Hans passion i livet är the Beatles.

    Even More Super Hits Of the Seventies ("Oh Susie")2015Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Michael Shelley about the CD and its purpose: “Even More Super Hits of the Seventies” is the third in a series that sprang to life as I was looking for a special way to entice listeners to make a pledge to the station [WFMU] and to express my thanks to the many listeners who literally keep the station on the air with their direct financial support. Once again I approached some of my favorite music makers and asked them to create a recording just for us - to cover a song that went top 40 somewhere on Earth in the 1970s - the one rule was: no irony. Like the first two volumes, I was, and am, completely bowled over by the quality of the music I received and the obvious thought behind the creation of the recordings. The idea that this music simply wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the good feelings that WFMU has engendered throughout the musical community is a powerful one, and it keeps returning to me. It is inspiring to know that so many musicians appreciate and support our free-form radio mission....It was the incredibly well crafted Power Pop recordings by David’s band The Merrymakers that first connected me to David’s musical abilities. From their base in Pitea, Sweden the band built a worldwide following (with a particularly rabid fanbase in Japan - where they’ve sold over 100,000 albums). David eventually went solo and has continued to experiment with different forms of music, but all with a trace of Pop in them."Written by Björn Håkanson & Tim Norell “Oh Susie” was a big hit in many parts of the world in 1979 for Sweden’s Secret Service. It was especially huge in Russia, where the band still tours to enthusiastic crowds.

    "Jealous Sun" (single)2018Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The song, which is the lead track of the upcoming album is called “Jealous Sun” and is a song I wrote together with the fantastic songwriter and artist, Bleu! I had had the melody lying around for years. Actually already since before my recording session in Abbey Road. Then producer Brad Jones to my surprise suggested deleting the verse, and instead let the pre-chorus should be my verse! Brad sure knows what he’s doing. Turned out great!

    Live at International Pop Overthrow, London2011Artistic output (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    On May 28 I will be making my second show ever as a solo artist. The gig will take place at The Bull & Gate in London. This time I won’t be able to bring my new excellent backing band and the idea was to make a solo performance. However, as it turned out, I’m fortunate enough to have been put in contact with a great, tasteful, and very talented English band called Mini who to my great surprise seem to be ready, willing, and able to back me up on a few songs so that’s going to be great fun! Rumour has it that they are fans of Jellyfish (just like me) and even of the Merrymakers(!) so I obviously already like them as people without even having met them and I look very much forward to meeting them IRL not to mention to be playing together as well.The show is part of an annual pop music festival called International Pop Overthrow which focuses on – as arranger David Bash puts it: “music that relies on melody and harmony, with prominent guitars. It’s music that is strongly influenced by but doesn’t necessarily sound like what we heard in the ’60s and ’70s.”My friendship with David Bash goes back to 1997 when he first invited the Merrymakers to play in Los Angeles which we did, first at the Poptopia festival, and then in 1998, at the the first International Pop Overthrow festival ever. So it’s going to be great fun to get together again and have the opportunity to expose my new solo stuff to the international power pop community.The legendary Bull and Gate is possibly the best place in the London area to catch unsigned acts. Nirvana and Blur are among those who stomped around on the Bull & Gate’s stage before they made their names.Check out the schedule here for this year’s IPO in London.Hope to see you in London!

    Live at Piteå Dansar och Ler2011Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Efter alltför många års tystnad på skiva är det 2011 äntligen dags för den stockholmsbaserade Piteåsonen och svenska popgeniet David Myhr att göra solodebut. Ett magnifikt soloalbum, Soundshine, ligger klart för release senare i år.Första smakproven har redan kommit i form av singlarna ”Got You Where He Wanted” och “Looking for a life”.Låtarna är representativa för det Myhr står för: melodisk, välsnickrad och tidlös popmusik med hjärta. Om det löper en tråd mellan The Beatles, Wings, Crowded House, Jellyfish, Fountains of Wayne och The Feeling, så dyker David Myhrs musik upp på olika ställen längs den. Ibland på flera ställen samtidigt. Dessutom är det lätt att höra att han kommer från samma norrländska indiepopmylla som exempelvis Popsicle och The Wannadies: Myhr var själv frontfigur i norrländska The Merrymakers, det ni!, som hade internationella framgångar och bland annat sålde över 100 000 album i Japan.-För oss på PDOL känns det sjukt bra att David vill vara en del av vår Festival i år, meddelar Fredrik Johansson en av två produktionsansvariga på Piteå Dansar & Ler.Eftersom vi på PDOL planerar en riktig rökar torsdag med nationellt kända artister från Piteå så är detta ett stort steg i den riktningen.Välkommen hit allihopa!

    Live at Restaurang Valdino, Studio Acusticum2011Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From David Myhr's blog:I’m happy to announce that a date for my first live show ever as a solo artist has been set!It will take place in my birthtown Piteå in the north of Sweden on April 8, 2011. The venue is called Restaurang Valdino Acusticum and normally serves as a lunch restaurant for people working at Department of Art, Communication and Education at Luleå University of Technology (less formally known as “The School of Music in Piteå”). Speaking of which, I am one of those people! More on that in a future blog post…Anyway – this evening the restaurant will change into a cool, hip and happening, and at the same time cosy rock club for one evening and I’m looking forward to playing the majority of the songs from my upcoming solo debut album Soundshine, including of course the first single that came out a couple of weeks ago – Got you where he wanted.The same evening people will have the opportunity to enjoy a live performance by Andreas Mattsson who just like me is releasing a solo album this year, and just like me is returning to his former home town Piteå for this occasion. Mattsson used to be in the brilliant band Popsicle which was highly influential on the Swedish 90′s indie pop scene. A true master of pop! I’ve followed Andreas myself ever since he sang and wrote the song “Naiv pop” with his first(?) band X-akt on a compilation album with bands from Piteå (“Ripp-Rocks skiva”) in the early 80′s but of course also through the 90′s in Popsicle a band which was also influenced the Merrymakers to some extent. Their big hit was “Not forever”.Andreas has also contributed with a lyric for a melody I wrote in Nashville together with the American songwriter Ian Eskelin. The song is called “Looking for a life” and will of course be included in my live set. It’s one of the highlights on the coming album and there’s even a rumour in my head(!) that it might be the next single. Speaking of co-writing by the way, Andreas has a gifted brother called Fredrik who is a friend of mine since many years and he has also been involved in a song on the album, this one called “Cut to the chase”.For this “historic” first live performance I have just put together an absolutely wonderful backing band which consists of the marvelously talented and inspiring Andreas Dahlbäck on drums, who also plays on (and has acted as my co-producer for) Soundshine. On the bass we will find Erik Jonsson who’s a new aquantaince of mine. As I write this I haven’t even met him. But I have seen him in action on YouTube with his cool band The Fix so I know his a great bass player. Banging the piano, wurlitzer and mastering the syntheziers you will find Joel Sjödin from a great band called Mankind. I had the pleasure of getting to know Joel a few years ago while he was a student at the studio musicians program (mentioned above) and now is a good friend of mine. Lastly on guitar I have the pleasure of introducing the Piteå audience to the very gifted and tasteful Krille Eriksson.Apart from being my first live show ever as a solo artist it’s also the first live gig with my original material since 2007 when we made the last two performances with the Merrymakers, one of them being in Valencia, Spain, and my mysterious one-off show at Club Wonder in Osaka, Japan, in november 2009.Hope to see you there at this evening of pure pop for now people!

    Looking for a life2011Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The second single from the upcoming album Soundshine. Released worldwide on iTunes Store and various other digital platforms.The melody for this song was written in Nashville already in 2005 when David hooked up with the American songwriter Ian Eskelin (All Star United). It was one of his first co-writing experiences outside of his previous band the Merrymakers. As an artist and writer Eskelin has had more than thirty Top 10 singles in the United States, including 12 #1 charting songs. He has additionally had international #1 songs in various countries including Japan, Singapore, and Australia.The song was lacking a lyric for a while until David asked Andreas Mattsson for help. Part of the reason for this was the fact that Ian Eskelin had expressed a big interest in Swedish indie-pop music from the 90′s including Mattsson’s former band Popsicle and David's own former band the Merrymakers. On this song David has collaborate with co-producer Andreas Dahlbäck (Lundell, Ternheim, Motorhomes, Eskobar) who also plays the drums. The other musicians featured on this single are Anders Pettersson (The Perishers, Deportees) and Rikard Lidhamn (Oh! Laura).

    Lucky Day2018Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Lucky Day is the new album from Swedish songwriter David Myhr. Recorded with Brad Jones in Nashville, the 10 song set features co-writes with Lojinx labelmates Bleu, Bill DeMain & Young Hines, among others. Available on heavyweight 180g LP, gatefold CD and digital download with bonus tracks on the CD only.

    Jones, who has helmed notable recordings by Josh Rouse, Hayes Carll and Jill Sobule, said: “My goal was to show David branching out from youthful power-pop to a more reflective, and more lasting sound.” Comparing Lucky Day to Myhr’s prior album Soundshine, Jones continues: “The idea was to create a warmer circle of sound around David, letting him sing in an easy and natural voice, to invite the listener into his world as it is now.” Ultimately, the album offers what Jones calls “a naturalistic kind of rehearsal-room energy.“
