Kristoffer Gildenlöw – New album: ‘Empty’ – Presale has begun!

Introducing ‘Empty,’ the fifth solo masterpiece by Kristoffer Gildenlöw, a musical journey that began its recording alongside the album ‘Homebound‘ in 2019.

Influenced by the likes of Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, and Mike Oldfield, Kristoffer Gildenlöw injects his own distinctive sound into ‘Empty,’ crafting a unique homage to his musical inspirations.
