The search is over! Every Million Miles are proud to welcome Michael Sjö to the band, as our new drummer. He will add energy, swing and a perfectly trimmed beard among other things.
If you think Pearl Jam has had a lot of different drummers, you’d better think again. While they’ve had five drummers in 24 years, Every Million Miles have seen just as many in only five years (not counting the times when Paul or Andreas have left their regular instruments to fill in on drums).
Every Million Miles have been fortunate enough to play with some excellent musicians, among them Magnus Frid of Ruh, and Johan Salomonsson (Tove Lo, Birgit Bidder, Southern Skyline etc). And unlike Pearl Jam, we never had any problems with any of our drummers. It’s just that they’re so good, and therefore so sought after, that they couldn’t dedicate enough time to be permanent members of the band.
In the spring of 2013 we decided to find our Matt Cameron, to continue the references to Pearl Jam. And after many auditions we finally did find the right match. His name is Michael Sjö, and as you can see above, he’s stoked to be our newest family member. As are we.
