Peter Carlsohn began his musical career in the 70s, and has performed with artists in all types of genres since then.
He joined the legendary Christian rock band Jerusalem in 1980, and has both recorded several albums with the band, and toured all over the world during a period of 40 years.
First album he recorded with Jerusalem was Warrior (1981), made them the first Swedish rock band to be played on MTV, and the first Christian rock band worldwide to be played on MTV. Warrior was recently voted one of ”The 100 most Important Christian Records All Times”, by CCM Magazine (USA).
