Degreed will be a featured guest on The Jimmy Star Show live radio show hosted by King of Cool, Jimmy Star along with his Cool Crowd of cohosts to discuss their music and the entertainment industries at large. The Jimmy Star Show is radio’s coolest hit entertainment show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.

Degreed is a Stockholm based Melodic Hardrock band formed in the beginning of 2005.

After many years of touring, gaining credabillity and fans the band released their critically acclaimed debut album ”life,love,loss”

in the fall of 2010 through Melodic Rock Records (Europe/USA), Spinning INC (Japan) and Rambo/Sony Music Entertainment (Sweden).”Treat and H.E.A.T are not alone my dear friends, if the opening track ‘B.O.D’ or the excellent ‘Captured by the Moment’ wont get you knocked out, I dont know what will!”- Kaj Roth, Melodic.net (4/5 stars, Oct. 2010)“..this first DEGREED album could well become THE album of the year!” – Gabor, MyGlobalMind.com (9/10 stars, Nov. 2010)

The band has also released a limited edition issue of their album ”life,love,loss” on Rambo/Sony. Along with the release of the limited edition album, the band teamed up with Gain Music Entertainment (Hardcore Superstar, Mustache, Crash Diet etc.) to run a promotion campaign which would help the band to reach out to a wider audience. Before degreed even released their first album they managed to tour Scandinavia and Germany, getting sponsored by legendary brands like Hagström and T-Rex, share stage with greats like Europe, Turbonegro, Millencolin among others and represent one of the largest musical instrument distributors in Europe – Musik Meyer on the largest public music fair in the world back in 2007.

”..if these are the bands other labels are passing on i suggest they need better A&R guys. ‘Life,Love,Loss’ is not the sortof album anyone should overlook.”

Now the band has once again teamed up with producer/songwriter Erik Lidbom (the first degreed album, Arashi, Kat- Tun, E.X.I.L.E, Masterplan to name a few) to record the second album, which they plan to release during the spring of 2013 throughout the world on Spectra Records (USA/Canada), Spinning INC (Japan) and the band’s management are currently negotiating for a deal in Europe.

Erik Lidbom has also written a few songs for the album, amongst them two together with multiplatinum and Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Bill Champlin (former singer of Chicago, songwriter for Earth, Wind and Fire etc.). Bill Champlin sang on the Chicago nr.1 hit “Look Away” as well as singles “You’re Not Alone” and “Hard Habit to Break”. Now Bill will make another mark in history by singing a few lines on the new degreed album. The album will also feature a song with the Japanese band Godbrother.

The band just got back from a very successful and critically acclaimed tour in the UK along with the band VEGA and are more hungry and excited than ever to tour!

It took 5 years of hard work to even get noticed and a bunch of shameful proposals to get where they are today but these 5 guys know how hard you have to work to get what you want and they wont stop until they get just that, what they want.

Line-up:

Robin Ericsson – Bass/Vocals . Mats Ericsson – Drums . Micke Jansson – Keyboards . Jesper Adefelt – Guitar/Backing

Vocals . Daniel Johansson – Guitar/Backing Vocals
