A little bit about Chris Klafford:
Born in a small town in Sweden (Ramsberg; population 15) Kläfford began his musical journey from a very early age. He picked up the guitar when he was just nine years old.
For ten years he honed his skills at gigs all across Sweden, slowly building his talent as a songwriter and performer.
Then in 2017, Kläfford hit a career high point with his win on Swedish Idol. Capitalizing on his success just a week after, he released his debut EP, Treading Water.
Roughly two years after, he would fly across the pond to perform on America’s Got Talent. He was instantly a fan favorite, with his cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine,”.
All of this momentum led to three Top 5 singles on national radio in a year and over 35 million streams. Kläfford has released ten more singles, two more EPS and a full length album since 2017.
