Ace of Base

The beginnings of Ace Of Base lay in a covers band, G Konrad, formed by Jonas Berggen in 1987 with his friends Jonny Linden and Niklas Trank. The band evolved after Berggen's sisters Jenny and Linn joined as vocalists. When Ulf Ekberg replaced Jonny Linden they changed their name to Ace Of Base and released their first single, Wheel Of Fortune, on a small independent Danish label. However, their big breakthrough came when they introduced reggae into their dance pop style on the single All That She Wants and at one point they were Number 1 and Number 2 in the Swedish charts. All That She Wants was a major hit all over Europe and The Sign became a Number 1 in both the UK and US establishing Ace Of Base as Sweden's biggest band since ABBA. Second album The Bridge (1995) saw them relinquishing their reggae style for a less successful ballad approach, but they returned to form with the Flowers album in 1998. The group adopted a low profile through much of the 2000s with Linn Berggen confirming her departure in 2007, and her sister Jenny following suit two years later.
