“7000apart is more than our music, it’s our story.“
7000apart is the husband-and-wife duo of Amelie Eiding and Jon Kresin. Their story began when Amelie left her hometown of Stockholm, Sweden to attend high school as an exchange student in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It was there where she met Jon and they fell in love. When she returned to Sweden, the couple started 7000apart as their creative project together named after the 7,000 kilometer distance between them. They spent three years like this before reuniting and getting married, and 7000apart became a serious artistic endeavor.
7000apart’s music transcends the relationship between Jon & Amelie. One of the cornerstones of their writing is mental health awareness, and their lyrics often touch on personal struggles and finding strength through dark times. They want to create music that resonates with others & helps them to feel a little less alone. The couple worked with Grammy-winning Nashville producer FEMKE on their latest single “Nothing to Worry About.” The song is their reminder to us all that no matter how hopeless the world seems right now, we can still find joy in whatever moment we’re in.
7000apart released their debut record “We Are More” in 2019, which now has over 100,000 streams and features on over 1,300 playlists on Spotify alone. 2020 also brought Amelie & Jon to the international stage on Sweden’s Got Talent (Talang) and garnered them a WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) nomination for New Artist of the Year.
