Kristoffer Ragnstam - Do You Want a Piece of Me Review
by Sherrill Fulghum
Swedish born rocker Kristoffer Ragnstam decided early in his musical career that he did not want to be a part of the cookie cutter musical styles of artists coming from the Scandinavian countries. Instead, he forged his own path; something he has done all his life.
An unruly child, his mother turned to music as an outlet for Kristoffer. Her first attempts failed. For a time young Kristoffer played football instead. Then the music bug took hold after seeing Jimi Hendrix on TV. Kristoffer promised his mother that he would not eat candy for a year if she would buy his a drum set. As so it began. But Kristoffer went beyond simply playing the set; he had to know all of the inner workings of the drums. It wasn't long before Kristoffer wasn't merely playing the drums, he was building them as well. The drum kit he uses on stage is one such construction. Later he added the guitar.
"Do You Want a Piece of Me?" is a five song EP that includes one song from Kristoffer's debut US CD "Sweet Bills". Kristoffer says that "Beauty" is a Beatlesque song and says it's the best song that Sir Paul McCartney never wrote.
While his My Space page labels the music as pop and alternative, Kristoffer Ragnstam's music is pure rock which contain melodies with some complicated rifts and harmonies from all the instruments.
