Biography

Peter Carlsohn began his musical career in the 70s, and has performed with artists in all types of genres since then.

Jerusalem

He joined the legendary Christian rock band Jerusalem in 1980, and has both recorded several albums with the band, and toured all over the world during a period of 40 years.

First album he recorded with Jerusalem was Warrior (1981), made them the first Swedish rock band to be played on MTV, and the first Christian rock band worldwide to be played on MTV. Warrior was recently voted one of ”The 100 most Important Christian Records All Times”, by CCM Magazine (USA).

Jerusalem has toured all over USA, and Canada several times, and in 1985 the band made 50 concerts in 4 months. During this tour the album ”In His Majesty´s Service-Live In USA” was recorded, and later voted ”Best Rock-Album of the Year” in GP (Swedish Newspaper).

With the song ”Dancing on the Head of the Serpent” (1987), Jerusalem was nominated for ”Best Song of the Year”, at the Dove Awards (USA).

In the 90s the band released the album ”Prophet”, and toured all over Europe together with legendary Christian rock pioneers Petra (USA).

Jerusalem has been active through the years, and Peter is currently recording some songs for the next Jerusalem-album, to be released in October 2020.

XT

Since 2017 Peter is the bass-player of the heavy rock band XT, along with band members Björn Stigsson
(Leviticus), Sonny Larsson (Motherlode, Leviticus), Dan Tibell (Jerusalem) and Thomas Weinesjö (Veni
Domine, Cell 9, Nubian Rose).

XT made several records during the 90s, before the band went into hibernation for some years. At the reunion, Peter was asked to join the band. He has recorded two albums together with XT, and during the fall of 2020, the next XT-recording is getting started.

In 2018, XT was invited to play at a Festival in Laos. This was the first time a Christian rock band was
allowed to play in the country, which has been closed for a long time. XT were invited back for the next
festival in 2019, and for future concerts.

Rune Edvardsen & Red Band

Peter’s first concert as bass-player for Rune Edvardsen & Red Band, was in Pakistan in 1999. Since 2008 Peter is touring on a regular basis with the band all over Asia and Africa, as well as making concerts in
Scandinavia.

The festivals and concerts are often outdoors with large crowds of 10-50,000 people.

During the last years the band has had concerts in India, Indonesia, Burma/Mayanmar, Nepal, Thailand, Burundi, Congo-Kinshasa, and Tanzania.

Combined with making concerts, the main focus is on helping people in greatest need, with practical help, and sharing a message of hope.

During the summer of 2020 Peter is working on a new album, with Rune Edvardsen & Red Band.
