North Country is an inspiration for Swedish pop singer John Dunsö

Listen to this story
Like a lot of Europeans, Swedish pop singer John Dunsö says he's amazed at the immensity of the American landscape. Dunsö visited the west coast last year and is living and writing new music during an artist residency in the North Country this month. He is the resident artist at Better Farm, a 65-acre sustainability campus in Redwood, NY.

Dunsö is the former guitarist in one of Sweden's biggest indie-pop bands, Billie the Vision and the Dancers. Now, he's recording his first solo album based on his travels across North and South America the last few years. "Rerun", one of the songs on his new album, is already a hit in his native Sweden.

Also known as Traveling John, Dunsö spoke with Todd Moe about how open space, physical work, solitude and big sandwiches help the creative process.
