Amanda Bergman breaks free with Docks. I stand up, we shake hands briefly. She leads me up the stairs to a corner room with big windows and we sit across from each other ready to make conversation. The album recently landed in my inbox, and the record is impressive with a story to tell and songs that lead you to a very emotional place full of heartache.

Her voice is haunting and vague, strong yet fragile. Is she angry, sad, bitter, at peace? We meet at a crossroads, a find-yourself type of moment right now for Amanda. Her voice is not afraid, she uses it well, at times almost like a scream that settles in the most velvety, smooth enriching notes. The melodies on the album are played by an orchestra of trained musicians who seem to really enjoy playing the songs. How do you feel now that you have finished your debut solo album?
What was the difference between this and the debut with Amason? We were just five people who were making music.MEET ME IN STOCKHOLM Sung by Carl de Rome
Of course I have different pressure on myself as a solo artist. If people are going to like it or hate it then I will have to deal with that response alone. What was it like working on a debut album as a working musician who has had success?
Releasing the album is definitely one of those things. It helps me to keep on working and to find some encouragement to keep on doing the same things. This album sounds very haunting, It really forces the listener to sit with it and really listen to the music and take it all in. When I think of the first song on the album, Falcons, I can see what you mean.
If I were to listen to it I would definitely listen to it properly. Of course anyone can get whatever they feel out of it, maybe it says more about the way I listen to music.

Is there an overall theme for the album? Do you think fans and media will try to draw any conclusions from the record? But also to me it definitely has to do with love, and love that ends. Life is relationships but still we have such a hard time being in them.
Meet Me In Stockholm
I think so too. I recognize myself in what you are saying. This record has definitely been a part of realizing that. I know the feeling. No one wants to get hurt, but I know I will get hurt if I keep on doing this. In Falcon there is a line: But where is my energy? Yeah this album sounds like when you are in that hole, how you get back up? There is definitely a reason for that.
I mean 20 per cent of the population are super-sensitive people and we need those people, so we are so needed but at the same time we live in a society where we are taught that any kind of fragility is not a good thing.
Is it ever awkward to do these interviews and live life so publicly or do you enjoy being in the spotlight? You who stand above them now, your hatchets blunt and bloody, you were not there before, when I lay upon a mountain and my father's hand was trembling with the beauty of the word.
And if you call me brother now, forgive me if I inquire, "Just according to whose plan? When it all comes down to dust I will help you if I must, I will kill you if I can. And mercy on our uniform, man of peace or man of war, the peacock spreads his fan.
A bunch of lonesome and very quarrelsome heroes were smoking out along the open road; the night was very dark and thick between them, each man beneath his ordinary load. Put out your cigarette, my love, you've been alone too long; and some of us are very hungry now to hear what it is you've done that was so wrong. I sing this for the crickets, I sing this for the army, I sing this for your children and for all who do not need me. I have changed my name so often, I've lost my wife and children but I have many friends, and some of them are with me.
An old woman gave us shelter, kept us hidden in the garret, then the soldiers came; she died without a whisper. There were three of us this morning I'm the only one this evening but I must go on; the frontiers are my prison. Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing, through the graves the wind is blowing, freedom soon will come; then we'll come from the shadows.
It seems so long ago, Nancy was alone, looking at the Late Late show through a semi-precious stone. In the House of Honesty her father was on trial, in the House of Mystery there was no one at all, there was no one at all. It seems so long ago, none of us were strong; Nancy wore green stockings and she slept with everyone.
She never said she'd wait for us although she was alone, I think she fell in love for us in nineteen sixty one, It seems so long ago, Nancy was alone, a forty five beside her head, an open telephone. We told her she was beautiful, we told her she was free but none of us would meet her in the House of Mystery, And now you look around you, see her everywhere.
