The Blue Van
Since 2004 The Blue Van has been touring most parts of the world. In between touring – counting not only 200+ shows in US - but also numerous concerts in Europe and Japan, they've had time to put out 5 critically acclaimed albums. The full throttle mod’ster album "The Art Of Rolling" (2005), the more organic west coast manifesto "Dear Independence" (2007), symphonic guitar-driven album “Man Up”(2008) and the 80’s glam rock inspired “Love Shot” (2010), together with the 5th full-length “Would You Change Your Life?” (2012/2013). Now they’re ONLY making singles! The first on is called “The Beat Goes On” 2014
The Blue Van shared the stage with Jet, Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, Keane, Razorlight, Hot Hot Heat, The Pretenders, Electric Six and many others.
Showcases played: Musexpo (L.A. and London), SXSW (Austin), PopKomm (Berlin) CMJ (New York) and CMW (Toronto).
The Blue Van received BMI Awards for the theme song “Independence” featured in the US TV series “Royal Pains” in 2010 and 2012
2014 - Killing the album format
"It's all about thinking in new directions and doing things differently - because the world is different now", says lead singer and guitarist Steffen Westmark. "At the same time, our approach to releasing music is very much old school; The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and all the others did just the same in the old days".
This also means that you may expect a veritable flood of videos from The Blue Van in the near future.
