Jonas Gladnikoff is a songwriter and music producer from Sweden. Born in 1985 in Täby, he began songwriting at an early age. Later in life he moved to the Åland Islands in Finland before eventually moving to Stockholm. He has written several songs for singers from across Europe, but is best known for writing entries for the Eurovision Song Contest and for various national pre-selections. He studied songwriting at the Music Production Academy Musikmakarna, graduating in 2006.

The song, "It's for You", was performed by the 1993 Eurovision winning singer Niamh Kavanagh. He also later wrote the 2014 Irish entry "Heartbeat" sung by Can-linn.

Among his entries in national pre-selections for the Eurovision Song Contest he is best known for having co-written the runner up in the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2009, the Danish final, with the song "Someday" performed by the Icelandic singer Hera Björk,[4][5] which became a big hit and also won the OGAE Second Chance Contest 2009 for Denmark. Gladnikoff is a member of the jazz pop project Technicoloured Roses.[6] He has also been seen in the costume drama Anno 1790 and has starred in several TV commercials.
