Swedish Rock Gods “Bleek” are ready to take on the world. With a sound that echoes the influences of bands like: Fleet Foxes, Cold Play, Pink Floyd and the song writing skills of legends like Bob Dylan and Bob Seeger, this band is creating global sound waves that brought them to the attention of Blue Pie.
The band comprises of Martin, Robin, Andy and Gustaf. With Martin Nobel on guitars, (Martin’s great great grandfather was the brother of famous Swede Alfred Nobel) Martins guitar sounds provides the band with a distinctive Swedish Rock Sound.

The Rhodin family has been in the entertainment business for 150 years, over 5 generations and Robin started playing the piano at age 5, he has since played in numerous orchestras and bands in theatres’ and circuses, various cover bands, a bluegrass band, and a few pop/rock bands, often together with Martin; Andy Rhodin is on drums. Andy is Robin’s little brother, and started playing drums when he was 8. He has studied drums under Peter Wildoer, from world famous death metal band Darkane, and one of Scandinavia’s top jazz and swing drummers, Roger Berg. He has also played drums and percussion in theatres and circuses, and of course with Martin and Robin in their different projects; Gustaf Berggrensson is the resident BassMan. Gustaf was the last to join the group, after Robin abandoned the bass in favour of keyboards, to broaden the sound. He’s grown up in a family of musicians and is known as one of Malmö’s top bassists.. The band were extremely happy to welcome Gustaf onboard. This is the band now know as “BLEEK”
