Music love since the birth of Pandora Voice
Pandora’s childhood was love for the music. At the age of 16, Pandora began to study classical vocal technique, classical guitar and theory of music at the College of Music in Västerås, a small town not far from Stockholm.
Pandora’s commercial career began fully in the winter of 1993 to 1994. In Autumn 1993, Pandora signed a contract with a Swedish record company and released her debut single Trust Me, which went straight into the world Eurodance charts across Europe and northern America. It was written and produced by Sir Martin and The Dr. Maxx Family.
Best-Selling local Swedish single that went Gold
Trust Me became the best-selling local single of the year for Pandora. It even managed to sell gold. They actually managed to beat the achievements of Ace of Base which were humongous popular at the same time. Then later in 1993, Pandora’s One Of A Kind album was released. It brought the singer further fame much further. So, they achieved gold status in both Sweden and Finland. This made Pandora the best-selling eurodance band in Scandinavia.
Later in 1994, Pandora released Come On And Do It eurodance track too. Music and lyrics were written by Hendrik Anderson (Peter Johannson wrote the B-side Get Your Chance). Raps were done by K-Slim. It was produced by Dr. Maxx Family, co-produced by T.O.E.C. The executive producer was Sir Martin. It was recorded at Stocksund in October 1993. This song didn’t manage to reach as high, but its a pumping track from Pandora still.
Tell The World gave Pandora yet another Gold Disc
In 1996, Pandora managed to get yet another gold disc with their follow-up album named as Tell The World. In Scandinavia sales of the album again exceeded the 100,000 mark, which was stunning number. In addition, Japanese audiences turned out to be very enthusiastic about Pandora. Tell The World sold over 500.000 copies in the land of the rising sun even, which is pretty cool considering this being a Eurodance group.
