David Myhr - Soundshine

Los Angeles

My brother Niklas Myhr is a Social Media & Global Marketing Professor at Chapman University in Orange, south of Los Angeles. He invited me over for his birthday backyard party that took place the past weekend. That was great fun of course and always great to meet his family and friends! I entertained his guests a little bit with my newly bought Martin HD28 acoustic guitar and managed to trick many of the guests to do some guest vocals.

Before going home I took the opportunity to hang out a little bit in Hollywood and Beverly Hills. I had the great pleasure of meeting a couple of artist and songwriting colleagues from the “power pop universe”. I had a really nice dinner with the amazing artist Bleu yesterday and after that I hooked up with Brian Wilson percussionist and old friend Nelson Bragg and our mutual friend and very talented painter/illustrator Borja Bonafuente Gonzalo at the legendary Rainbow Room. Today I had lunch with I.P.O. founder David Bash and artist Brandon Schott. Lastly I met up with the great Linus of Hollywood at his studio to talk about our many common influences ranging from ABBA to Jellyfish. All very rewarding meetings and I hope I will be back here sooner rather than later and hopefully be able to enter into some musical adventures with these very gifted writers and producers. Thanks a lot Niklas for inviting me and thanks to everyone I got to meet during these four very intense days!

Now I’m really eager to fly home to be back with my lovely wife Paula and our lovely cat Majsi!
