… this is about a highly skilled musician who doesn´t avoid any style in his creative work. He represents a unique width and variation so everyone is guaranteed something that appeals, whether you dig pop, jazz, funk, rock or classical music (ST)
Back To You from The World We Know 2010
Imagine Jimi Hendrix, imagine Django Reinhardt and Gypsy Kings, think of Swedish folk-music and sadness. …The influences comes from many different styles but Erik’s astonishing technique and perfectly clear acoustic tone together with his arrangements forms a whole often lacking on a “Best Of”-album (GD)
Don´t Say No Senorita from the Grammy-nominated album Duende. This version from the collection Guitar 2000
Anyone who takes the time to get into Erik Borelius world of music will be generously rewarded (M), The music is meditative, soulfull, lyric, impulsive and inspiring (GP)
Northern Lights from My Kind Of Picture 1995. This melody was played everyday for four years on Swedish Television
He plays and sings with a supreme sense of closeness. Well varied compositions, with lyrics that reach deep down (NA), … writes songs that ought to make Donald Fagen and Walter Becker jealous (ÖA)
Woman On The Floor, Erik´s debut as singer 2003. The album What Is Success
The whole record is in parts so perfect that you shiver with pleasure. … Put your head-sets on and sit back and enjoy (TT), This year’s surprise from Sweden? (ST), A softly swaying, jazzy rocky craft put together by parts that make me think of names such as Steely Dan, Pink Floyd and Paco De Lucia (GP)
Life can be this picture from What Is Success
Unusually successful, well-arranged modern instrumental music… an eldorado for acoustic guitars. Within Borelius the soloist lives an inflammable little flamenco player… Duende stands apart from all faceless new age, ambient music and whatever else today’s versions of different instrumental music are called (SDS)
Duende from the Grammy-nominated album with the same name. This version from the collection Guitar 2000
His acoustic playing is transparently elegant, while the electric parts are close to catching fire. Furthermore he is a good singer… It´s smart and beautiful, but still not overloaded, and it swings with supreme authority in all the various tempos (VF)
