Hi, how are you?
I’m fine, thanks. The summer is almost here in Sweden so I can not complain.
So, how did you get into music?
I was around 10 years old when I really got into music. I saw together with my big sister a U2 concert on MTV and after that I was stuck. Around the same time when I learned my first chord on the guitar, I immediately started to write my own songs and recorded them with my cassette tape recorder. That’s how it all started, I still have all the old cassettes stored in a box at my parents house.
How did you come up with the name Rain on Monday?
“Rain on Monday” is based on my given name Raimond. After I’ve been playing in different bands for quite some time I started this has a solo project, but I don’t want it to be so obvious either. So I played around with some words and came up with the name “Rain on Monday”.
What inspires you to make music?
Life and different kind of emotions is what inspires me most.
Describe yourself in one word.
Describe your music in one word.
If you could give any advice to an upcoming musician what would it be?
Follow your instincts and keep on having fun.
What is your definition of culture?
For me is culture a way to express yourself in different art forms. I also like how different art forms interact with each other, for example how music can affect the feeling of a movie scene or a dance performance etc.
