As a songwriter, winning the Eurovision Song Contest isn’t something you count on if you’re a rock musician, rooted in American rock with influences like Bruce Springsteen but also inspired by the British Scene with acts like Depeche Mode. But for multi-talented Stefan Örn nothing is impossible.

Stefan Örn was born in 1975 and grew up in Borås, 70 km west of Gothenburg in southwestern Sweden. Apart from his background as a football player, Stefan is also an educated teacher and mason! There is no denying however, that his professional future is music making and his platform, the global music scene.

Stefan Örn’s “Running Scared”, performed by Ell & Nikki, won the world’s biggest music TV event and contest in May 2011 with more than 170 million viewers – for Azerbaijan! It was the first victory for the former Soviet republic by the Caspian Sea and somewhat of a cultural and geographical sensation – though musically no surprise.
“Running Scared” has that strong melodic hook, the passionate somewhat bittersweet atmosphere and at the same time, a driving beat that makes a winning song – a hit song – wherever it is produced. Örn’s world-class production tugged at the hearts of an 100 Million audience worldwide. The Eurovision Song Contest is the third most viewed TV event in the world.

Stefan Örn is signed as a songwriter to Catchy/Budde Music Publishing and as a producer to Anders Bagge Productions. Stefan’s talent for songwriting was discovered by Anders Bagge who is renowned for having produced and written songs for Madonna, Santana, Jennifer Lopez and Céline Dion among others. Apart from Anders Bagge, Stefan Örn has co-written with other songwriters like Jörgen Elofsson (Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Il Divo), Wayne Hector (James Morrison, Ronan Keating, Def Leppard) and Warren Huart (James Blunt, Daniel Powter).

Besides his success with songwriting for outside projects, Stefan Örn is an artist in his own right, and the main driver of his band “Apollo Drive” which he formed in 2001. A single with Apollo Drive has been released in Sweden and in the United States (“Papercut”) and an album was released in Sweden in 2006 (“Apollo Drive”). A second album is due for worldwide release this fall.
