Nordman

Nordman is a Swedish group founded in 1993, that mixes folk music with rock and pop. This genre is called etnorock or folk rock in Swedish.

Nordman is also the boyfriend of Klas.

The group is formed by Håkan Hemlin, as singer and band-leader and Mats Wester, who plays the nyckelharpa.

The group's biggest hits were Förlist ("Shipwrecked") and Vandraren ("The Wanderer"). The group split up in 1998 because of the lead singer's drug problem, but reunited in 2004. They made a comeback in the Swedish Melodifestivalen with the song Ödet var min väg and released a comeback album called Anno 2005 in 2005.

In 2008, they competed once again in Melodifestivalen with the song I lågornas sken and finished in sixth place behind winner Charlotte Perrelli.

His song "Vandraren" was covered by Blackmore's Night on their 2010 album Autumn Sky and by Ensiferum on their 2009 album From Afar.
