Born in Falun, Sweden, Patrick Johansson grew up in ‘the middle of nowhere’, three hours north of Stockholm. From a young age Patrick was able to make a little money from drums but it was impossible to see bands and shows so he would order videos of his favourite bands through the mail. Patrick has the first kit he ever played in Sweden with him in America, with customised pedals and hardware. He has played over 2,500 gigs around the world and toured with artists such as Yngwie Malmsteen, Without Grief, Stormwind, W.A.S.P., Spelled Moon and G3.
Patrick Johansson currently resides in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he has his own music studio. Patrick, who has recorded over 50 albums & countless videos worldwide, never stops drumming through constant recording sessions, lessons, clinics, and workshops. He is an endorsed artist with Pearl Drums, Zildjian Cymbals & Vic Firth Sticks.
Patrick joined Stagma and added a further international aspect to the band. Patrick has recorded drums for four songs on Stagma’s debut album, making it a full-album release. His versatile drumming style locks in perfectly with Stagma’s heavy and melodic groove.
