Elias Ringquist was born into a musical family and started performing at a very early age, singing, dancing and playing around on the piano.
At the age of 9, Elias received his first acting role in the Palme d´Or winning film “The Best Intentions” directed by Bille August and screenplay by Ingmar Bergman. Following, Elias became a sought-after child actor and garnered the most fame from portraying the son of Doris in two films from the Jönssonligan comedy series.
Elias eventually left acting to study music and vocals in Sweden as well as in the United States, where he attended Berklee College of Music and LACM in Los Angeles. During these years Elias began composing and writing his own music, inspired by R&B artists, for which he arranged, produced and played the instruments.
This resulted in album and single releases, both in Swedish and English. The first solo release came in 2011 after having worked years on the project. While developing his own sound, Elias began exploring other genres including classical, musical theatre, jazz, French music, and film scoring.
Elias has worked with different artists spanning from A-Teens Amit Paul to Spotify phenomenon KAIAK and been a finalist on Swedish American Idol. During 2023 a song written by Elias was featured in the stage show “Johnny’s World Next Stage” in Tokyo, sung by boy band HiHi Jets. As an artist and pianist, Elias has done numerous live performances around Sweden, such as radio and television appearances, and is often seen performing alongside the artist and composer Camilla Ringquist.
