The Kennel Recordings


Irene is a Swedish pop band formed in 2015 by lead vocalists Ludwig Lindell and Daniel Caesar.


Ludwig and Daniel has been best friends since they were 6 year old kids and are today still side by side working professionally with their production/songwriting duo ”Caesar & Loui” who currently are signed to The Kennel/Universal Music Publishing. After many long hours in the studio writing for other artists around the world they decided to write their own music and have their own band. So in 2015 they asked their great friends Emmanuel Hailemariam (Guitar) and Karl-Oskar Gummesson (Drums) who also lived in Stockholm to join the band. And so Irene was formed.


The name Irene comes from the Ancient Greek and is a name of a goddess of peace.



The members like to call Irene’s musical style pop. With a very wide range of influences such as Abba, Coldplay, One Republic, David Bowie, Queen, Irenes sound and musical style is very variated from song to song. In the studio, the band members have been experimenting with many different instruments such as orchestras, old pianos and modern drum samples. They like to have a spectrum of both acoustic and electronic elements.
