Lasse Wellander

Lasse Wellander started working as a full time musician when he was sixteen years old and has long since been one of Sweden's most engaged guitarists on recordings, live, on TV and so on. He has worked with many of Sweden's most popular artists, for example ABBA — where he participated on all the major tours and most of the recordings. His prominent guitar-playing can be heard in the bridges of "Knowing Me, Knowing You" and "Eagle", in the intros of "Gimme!, Gimme!, Gimme!" and "Chiquitita", in the solos of "Slipping Through My Fingers" and "Our Last Summer", in the riff of "Does Your Mother Know", and more.

Lasse Wellander's collaboration with Björn and Benny has continued after ABBA, with the musical Chess and the soundtrack to Mamma Mia! The Movie (and its upcoming sequel). Lasse has also released some solo albums over the years, from which "Anthem" from Chess and "Romans ur Pastoralsvit, opus 19" by Lars-Eric Larsson attracted some extra attention and actually made the charts in Sweden, which is quite unusual for instrumental numbers. He has recently started to produce and release his own music again after some years break.
