PAUL CONNOLLY, SE/UK

Music journalist,
Skellefteå, SE

Paul Connolly is a British journalist who has written about pop music for more than 20 years for publications as diverse as The Guardian, The Local, The Independent, The Times, Record Collector and Electronic Sound. A former London denizen who recently relocated to Sweden, he’s now the UK media’s go-to guy for all things related to Swedish pop. He still can’t quite believe just how good the Swedes are at pop music.

Away from music he has two interests – Manchester City and trying to keep up with his boisterous twin daughters. Both pursuits have been tiring but ultimately rewarding.
