Marie Fredriksson (full name: Gun-Marie Fredriksson , May 30, 1958 in Össjö, Sweden) is a Swedish singer-songwriter. Famous for being the female voice of the successful Swedish pop duo Roxette (along with Per Gessle), in her native Sweden she already had a consolidated career as a soloist before becoming part of this duo. She is married to the Swedish singer Mikael Bolyos.

Marie_Fredriksson’s Biography


From an early age he had a relationship with music. In his youth, he formed two bands in Sweden: “Strul” and “Mamas Barn”. But the recognition in his country would come later, when he devoted himself completely to his solo career.

Musical career

Her first album Het Vind was a great success in 1984, and subsequently Den Sjunde Vågen consecrated her as a renowned artist in Sweden. In 1986 he began his work on Roxette, but not entirely sure of the success of this international project, he decided to continue with his solo career, and in 1987 he released his third album, Efter Stormen. However, Roxette was beginning to take shape. In 1989 the single “Sparvöga” represents the last success as soloist of the decade of the ’80. This ballad was a great success in Sweden, but Marie did not have time for a new album, because the success of Roxette and the international tours did not allow her to focus on her solo career, until in 1992 she returns with the album Den Standiga Resan, who sold more than any other Marie album. A tour of Sweden led her to a reunion with her most loyal fans. The tour was another great success in this diva’s Swedish career.

Already more accustomed to Roxette’s agendas and what it means to be part of an international group, Marie returned several times and every several years. In 1996 I In Tid Som Vår again achieves good sales and three singles from the album keep their career, as always, at the top.

His most recent album, released in 2000, compiles the best hits of Marie, Äntligen – Bästa 1984-2000. The album also includes two new songs; “Det Som Var Nu”, a deep ballad sung in duet with Patrik Isaksson, and the joyful song that gives name to the album “Äntligen”, a new tour in Sweden began and the success took more than 100,000 people to attend their concerts . That compilation of great successes has sold more than 300,000 copies in Sweden.

In 2002, a box appeared on the market that included Marie’s five studio albums recorded between 1984 and 1996 plus an album of her best live songs from the recent Äntligen 2000 tour.

Interruption of his career

In September of the same year, Marie was going to embark with her partner Per Gessle in a series of symphonic concerts, but one event caused this and many plans to change course. Hours before giving a press conference, Marie Fredriksson faints at home and is quickly hospitalized. The next day, after a series of studies, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, news that shocked not only his followers, but also the world of music.

Weeks later, Marie is surgically treated and the tumor is completely removed. While the operation was a success, the successful singer is subjected to strict treatment in order to avoid other cancer formations. As a result of this operation, Marie lost the ability to read and count, having to learn again. For almost two years he remains far from the music scene, dedicating himself completely to his family and receiving treatment. Throughout that lapse, he writes and records an album (The Change) that reflects all those moments lived.

Return as a soloist

The Change marks the return of Marie, but this time in English, debuting like this in the international market. The album reflects the sad episodes in her life since the tumor was detected in 2002 and she was forced to move away from the world of music for several years. The album was published in Sweden, Brazil and several countries in Europe in 2004.

Min Bäste Vän is released on the market in 2006 edited by EMI Svenska. It is a compilation of covers of the Swedish folk songs from the 70s favorites of Marie.

In 2007 Marie returns to the music scene, performing four songs on her husband’s debut album, Mikael Bolyos, A Family Affair. In this album the song “Hometown” is included finally, that originally was recorded in 1996 for the band of sound of the Swedish film Such is life. The soundtrack for unknown reasons never went on sale.

At the end of 2007 (November 28) a new compilation of this singer titled Tid för tystnad is published, including her best ballads, plus two new songs, “Ordet är farväl” and “Ett bord i solen”, which is the Swedish version of his song “A Table in the Sun”, included in the album The Change of the year 2004. On July 8, 2008 the album is surprisingly edited by EMI-Odeón Argentina.

The return of Roxette

The return of Roxette takes place in January 2011, with the single “She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)”, which is part of the album Charm School. Disco with which they begin a new world tour that took them to the five continents and lasted until 2012. That same year they released “Traveling”, a disc that mixes live and studio songs. At the end of 2012 they released a CD-DVD called “Traveling The World” which contains the audio of the concert of the duo in Santiago de Chile and the DVD with presentations around the world of the same year.

However, on April 19, 2016, the cancellation of the world tour for the 30th anniversary of the group was announced due to the singer’s health problems, which her doctors advised her to refrain from traveling. However, along with Roxette, they release the band’s 10th album called “Good Karma”, from which the single “It just happens” is released.
