Born in Uppsala, Sweden, in 1981, Britta Persson's smart, engaging pop songs about the ups and downs of romance suggest that sometimes boys do make passes at girls who wear glasses, even if the results aren't always happy for everyone. Her debut album, the airy and enigmatic Top Quality Bones and a Little Terrorist, arrived in 2006 and became a major critical success in Sweden and received similar buzz throughout Europe. Her sophomore outing, 2008's Kill Hollywood Me, found the singer/songwriter adopting a grittier, more idiosyncratic persona that resulted in considerable radio play for the single "Cliffhanger." 2010's Selective Notes-issued Current Affair Medium Rare earned Persson a Swedish Grammy Award nomination. It was followed in 2013 by If I Was a Band My Name Would Be Forevers, her fourth long-player.
Britta Persson is a Swedish indie pop musician from Uppsala, Sweden, who in September 2010 is releasing her third album entitled “Current Affair Medium Rare”. She has gone from making modest and very simple recordings to working with complex arrangements but always with the same straight to the point lyrics and a feeling in the melodies as if they were just meant to be. Britta Persson had her breakthrough in her native Sweden in 2006 with the album “Top Quality Bones and a Little Terrorist”. The single Winter Tour got high rotation on radio in Scandinavia and a couple of years later also got great recognition in Europe thanks to a TV advertising campaign. 2008 the follow-up album “Kill Hollywood Me” was released. It clearly showed a tendency and followed the direction towards a bigger sound and a greater production. Since the start Britta Persson has worked with artists such as Kristofer Åström and Camera Obscura.
In 2012 Persson helped co-write the song So Young So High by Swedish Duo Dada Life.
