His musical motivation comes from the joy and calmness he receives in making music, as well as bringing people together through the beauty of deep sound experiences. „Good music stands out by making people dream and move.“
„Jesper is one of the most exquisite musicians that I have worked with. His understanding of different styles, forms and the ebb and flow of the music is second nature for him and when he plays it adds depth, contrast and shimmer to whatever genre of music it is. He is equally good at creating space for others as he is at taking breath-taking solos when the time is right: a true musician’s musician. In my experience, you can put Jesper into any situation and he’ll make the music pop… He is the special sauce that can make a good song into an exceptional one.“ Erik Brodin Higgins
