Jonas Reingold

Jonas Reingold is a 32-year-old bass guitar player from Malmö, Sweden. He started to play bass in 1986 when he subbed for a friend who was the bass player in the local famous act WIRE. The band was happy with his performance and offered him the spot. From 1988 until 1994 he studied music and achieved a master degree of fine arts in 1994.

Busy working as a session player between 1994 and 1996 he finally released his debut album as a band leader in 1995, which was called Sweden Bass Orchestra. It was a bass big band consisting of 5 bass players and a drummer. They also had a guest performance by Niels-Henning Orstedt Pedersen on the disc. Between 1996 and 1999, Reingold was busy recording with various artists and different projects, such as Midnight Sun, Reingold, Sand and Gold and a few others.

In 1999 he started to work with The Flower Kings, replacing Michael Stolt who moved on to other things, and is still a permanent member in the group. Right now he is involved with the Kings, Opus Atlantica and his own band; Karmakanic. Furthermore, he was involved with Time Requiem.

2002 had Reingold release the first album with his project Karmakanic; 'Entering The Spectra'. In 2003 Karmakanic released their second album 'Wheel Of Life' which was composed (again) completely by Jonas.

Reingolds unique composing style is main subject of critics. His music contains a unique mixture of pop, jazz and hard rock without becoming 'artificial' like many other acts in the 'prog rock' genre.

Karmakanics 3rd release is planned for 2006. =>>>>>>>>>>>
