Eric Saade

Creative, positive and "control freak". But sloppy when it is time to relax. That’s how Eric Saade describes himself.

Ever since he, with his stylish and charismatic performance, took the third place in the finals at the Globe with the hit Manboy he has been on everyone's lips. 


During the summer of 2009, we could se him as a host of Disney Channel's  My Camp Rock,  a Scandinavian music competition that draws inspiration from the channel's hit movie Camp Rock. Eric figured not just on TV that summer: we could also see him as a host for the nationwide contest Julia's Shooting Stars. An event which has its grand finale at Skansen and over the years, included participants as Lisa Nilsson and Peter Jöback.

Then, in August 2009, Eric was contracted to Sweden's most rapidly expanding record label, Roxy Recordings. He has artist colleagues as Orup, Agnes, Malena Ernman, Peter Jöback, Erik Hassle, Sarah Dawn Finer, Le Kid and many others. Eric Saade mastered all aspects of an artist. He has been writing songs since he was 13 years old and has written songs to his debut-album Masquerade solo or in collaboration with various producers and songwriters such as Fredrik Kempe, Peter Boström, Alexander Kronlund, Dimitri Stassos, Ginni, and Anton Malmberg Hård Af Segerstad. 


Eric Saade grew up in Kattarp outside Helsingborg, Sweden and quickly got to take responsibility. First, as divorced parents and the second oldest of eight siblings and half siblings. Partly because he more or less had to pull though school by himself. But also because he started his career in the music industry at the early age of 13, after having been spotted by a management that had always believed in him (and are still by his side). 


When Eric saw Michael Jackson on TV  he got the idea that he would sing. When it turned out that he had the talent the family made something of it. His first stage appearance was at age six, when he sang at his mother's wedding. Since then he has held various musical periods, which included artists as Backstreet Boys and Bryan Adams. Today you can hear the influences in his own songs. Football was Eric's second major interest and remained number one until he got his first record deal at age 15. Today Eric is still a big football fan and Zlatan remains his greatest role model.  


After his release of his debut album he has toured the country. And for the second time he was competing in the Swedish national Song Contest, and won it with his song Popular. There’s no rest for Eric in a while. Future goals include building a long career as treated with respect by both audiences and critics. Sweden is most important but he also bears a dream to break through the favorite country of Britain.
