A Master of Ceremonies (2008)
Joel Alme (born 1980) is a musician and artist from Gothenburg, Sweden. Alme released his debut album A Master of Ceremonies on April 22, 2008 with "Queen’s Corner" being the single. In 2010 he released his second studio album called Waiting for the Bells. He is the former lead singer for Spring in Paris and consumes candy every day - adding to his cosy normality appeal.
When Alme received grant money from the Swedish Arts Council (Kulturrådet) for his second album Waiting for the Bells he said, “it enabled me to use a real strings orchestra and I could spend more time in a very good studio with a good producer, Mattias Glavå.”
In 2009, Alme altered the lyrics to his song "A young summer’s youth" and produced the song "Snart skiner Poseidon" to be played before and after all IFK Göteborg’s home matches where it is performed by a massed chorus of supporters.
In 2015, Alme released "Flyktligan" – his first album in Swedish. Most of the songs on that album are about his background and upbringing.
