SALME OJA

BY SANDRO HERRERA JOHNSTON

Salme Oja, Swedens vocalist from Stockholms, rock band Captain Heart (Polygram Records) have had a huge success on the Stockholm club scene.

With members Stefan, (guitar), Jocke (bass), and Johan (on-drums), they created a sound  that bridges Kiss and Bon Jovi.

Stockholm was ready for Salme and Captain Heart. With Salme's gorgeous looks, the band received great critique from Swedens rock magazine "Okey."

With a short career, the band did a very well. Salme and the boys kicked ass all over the clubs, such as "City Hallen" with their cover of the classic acoustic version of "Livin' On- A Prayer" by Bon Jovi.

Personally, I think Salme is the Stockholm's greatest singer. In 1993, she released her first solo CD, but i am most fascinated by her live act. Captain Heart was a great melodic rock band. Salme remains at the top of the list along with Lorraine Lewis (Femme Fatale) and Sandy Saraya.
