ERIK MIXES GOSPEL, Funk, and Pop in songs about rights. 

 

Known to many as an architect, Erik Toro in recent years has bloomed into a Songwriter/Producer/Artist/and Creative Director creating a wide range of music in and out of Stockholm, Sweden.  His first singles THE RIGHT and IF I PRAY, in their first week of release gained national and International recognition. They are anthems of LGBT Rights and dedicated to victims of hate crimes, each mixing sounds of Gospel-Pop and Rock. Within 2015 Erik Toro released new up-tempo music shedding light on messages of Anti-Racism, Anti-Bullying,  and other topics that are highly current in Sweden. Alongside his own projects, together with more than 40 artists Erik Toro tours throughout the country performing against growing racism in Sweden. During 2016 the band performed at Almedalen in front of the Prime Minister and the government in Sweden. In 2017 Erik will perform alongside Mandy Rich, Swedens first Transexual rapper, Tensta Strings, and is currently competing in P3 Osignat with the single FLY, and release 2 new singles with hopes of competing inMelodifestivalen 2018.
