Another international artist was recording at AGM Studio this year: the Belgian Lio. She will publish her new album next week.
There’s a huge interest in our Audio Books. Newspapers are calling. Television is calling. Metro-Magnus (Magnus Börjeson) is editing the last chapters of Per Hagman’s book. He sends them to Brainpool-David Birde, who checks for errors. The files/chapters are uploaded to the retailer’s servers the moment they are cleared. It’s an interesting process. It’s fast, fun & groundbreaking. These are the first Swedish novels that are published this way.
Junk Musik has released these albums in 2005

She has an extensive discography and has collaborated with several important French music artists, including Etienne Daho and Jacno. Many of Lio's singles were successful, but her biggest hit was probably 1980s Banana Split. This track was redone on the Suite Sixtine album as Marie Antoinette. Now she lives in France and works in French television.
According to her own website:
"It took five years, encouragements from sister Helena, threats of kidnapping, a short disappearance and a small studio somewhere in a Swedish forest (Aerosol Grey Machine Studio, in Skane), but finally, it's here: Dites Au Prince Charmant, the marvellous comeback of Wanda Ribeiro de Vasconcelos, better known as Lio. 43 years old right now, but she still looks ravishing. No more electropop, but clever, beautifully arranged acoustic songs with lyrics about loneliness, disillusionment and dreams that did not came true."
The album, published today in France, was produced, and almost completely written by Doriand and Bertrand Burgalat-collaborator Peter von Poehl (friend of Florian Horwath and Christoffer Lundquist).
