Buford Pope, (a.k.a. Mikael Liljeborg) was born in 1971 on Gotland, a Swedish limestone island in the Baltic Sea. With a small population and isolated from the Swedish mainland the young Mikael discovered music, primarily Bob Dylan and then on to other greats of the singer songwriter genre such as Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne. He recently released an outtake that didn't quite make his most recent, and fifth, album 'Sticks In The Throat' from 2014. Spotify users can listen to the track on the link below.
