Peter Svensson is a songwriter, producer and musician. He is the main songwriter and guitarist of the band, The Cardigans.[1][2] He started playing guitar at the age of eight and in his teens he went on to play with local bands. After hooking up with bass player Magnus Sveningsson, they in 1992 formed The Cardigans. Peter Svensson is credited with writing the music and melodies for almost all of the group's original songs.

In 1998, he released a side/solo project called Paus. All songs were co-written together with Joakim Berg from the band Kent. The drums were played by The Cardigans drummer Bengt Lagerberg. In 1999, the Paus album and Svensson’s work on The Cardigans fourth album Gran Turismo earned him a Swedish Grammy as Composer of the Year.

Svensson co-wrote (again with Joakim Berg) Swedish singer Titiyo’s album Come Along. The single Come Along was a big hit in 2001 and was awarded a Grammy for Song of the Year in Sweden. Since the last album with The Cardigans, Super Extra Gravity, Svensson has written and produced songs for numerous international artists such as One Direction, Ariana Grande and Avril Lavigne.
