Feels like Sweden has got its own Ryan Tedder though not having any single released in a homeland yet.
Jonas Myrin has started working as songwriter collaborating with Natasha Bedingfield, Guy Sigsworth, Justin Hawkins (The Darkness), Iain Archer (Snowpatrol), Björn Yttling (Peter Bjorn and John) and was even nominated for Grammy twice (2011 - Best Gospel Song - "Our God", 2013 - Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music - "10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)").
Recently Jonas has turned to his own career releasing the single "Day Of The Battle" in Germany, Austria and Switzerland this summer and nice OneRepublic-meets-Oskar Linnros pop-track was very warmly accepted on local radio. The song was produced by Jonas with Carl Wikström Ask who recently worked with Linnea Henriksson, Daniel Adams-Ray, Veronica Maggio and you can definitely feel vibes of their releases in this song.
Debut Jonas' album "Dreams Plans Everything" is also already out in Germany and you can pre-listen it here, this is very OneRepublic and full of great anthemic tunes.
Oh! And I can't help but mention that together with Peter Kvint Jonas has written the song "Must Be Love" that will be performed by Lucia Pinera at Melodifestivalen-2013.
