About




Hello!

I am Pontus Hjelm. Most people probably know me through the band
Dead by April; 
where I do vocals, guitars and songwriting.
However, I also run Studio PH Sweden 
as a producer, engineer
as well as a songwriter for other bands and artists.


My career started out in 2007 when I co-founded Dead by April 
and signing a publishing deal with EMI Publishing in 2008.
The big breakthrough came in 2009 with the single 'Losing You'.
It went straight in topping the charts and selling gold!

I've been on the road touring the world on and off ever since.
I've also had the opportunity to work with many great artists, bands
and producers which I'm very grateful for.

Don't hesitate to get in touch if you're looking for a studio with many
years
 of experience and above all - passion for music!
