Dan Tibell, Keyboards and Hammond organ. Irene Myrberg, Backing vocals. 1990 the Record hit the market and were received quite well, played on radio a lot and the Videos “chosen” and “The clown” were shown at some TV stations (made by David Stavenow) The managers to the band failed big time promoting the record and only about 4000 records were sold world wide. After some time trying to get musicians for touring with “project Heartcry” Anders got tired of trying all the time to get it to work, so he formed Heartcry as a Band. The very first lineup was... Anders Johansson, Guitar and Vocals Mick Nordstrom, Drums. (Urban Strom, drums replaced Mick -91 to -96) Mike Sand, Bass Irene Myrberg, Backing Vocals Anders Carlson, Keyboards Touring A long touring period took place between -91 and -96 including a seven days long Polen Tour.
Finally a follower to the Album “come back home” came to place in -96. A CD called quite simply “Heartcry”. The lyrics were in Swedish and also the next CD “ökenland” (dessert land -97) were in Swedish. In Japan, thanks to Janne Stark (Stark Music) the band got a smaller success. (Janne Stark also wrote about “Johannes” in his Book “Swedish Hard Rock Heavy Metal) The Record company Chinseido released a special CD with the band, but the lyrics in Swedish wasn’t such a smart thing, so it quickly disappeared from the market. Back in Sweden Heartcrys song “lottofeber” (gambling fever) got voted to best song 1997 by Naxos Sweden, so it went quit well for the band. The lineup in -96 was.. Anders Johansson, Guitar and Vocals Jorgen Olausson, Bass Anders Carlsson/Tingsvik, Keyboards. (Dan Bostrom, Guitar, replaced the Keyboard in -98) Christian Eidevald, Drums Anders got tired In -99 Anders felt it hard to perform and carry the load of the band, he was tired trying getting around and missed his old friend Anders Carlsson/Tingsvik.
Anders J and his Family had worked very hard the last 10 years and it started to take its toll, so they finally decided to take a very hard decision and move from Jonkoping to a smaller town called Savsjo. The Band was put on ice and a 3 year long rest begun. New visions Anders was happy living a quiet normal life not working and touring all the time, spending time with his family and painting the house, building a swimming pool seemed to be the medicine to get the inspiration back. After three years long rest, the vision of Heartcry begun to fly again. New songs were made and getting together with old friends from “Green Sleeves” and doing some recordings did the trick. After a meeting with Anders Kollerfors, drums, Bjorn Klingvall, Bass and DanTibell Keyboards/Hammond organ in 2004, Anders felt the need to get a new fresh start with Heartcry. Back on track Back on track the boys started what would become “lightmaker” Recorded in Anders “Vital Music Studio” (Produced by Andy Johnson) Anders now felt that for the first time ever, he could be happy with the sound and the recordings. After the making of “Lightmaker” he talked with Rivel Records about a release world wide. He got the response he was locking for, and Jan 26 -05 “The Heartcry will be out there again, this time with the best line up ever. Well there will be a lot more to tell about this band, and time will tell. Read more on Last.fm.
