Fire! is the core trio of Mats Gustafsson (sax), Johan Berthling (bass) and Andreas Werlin (drums). Fire! formed in 2009 to develop a fresh approach to improvised music drawing on influences from free jazz, psychedelic rock and noise.

Hailing from Umeå in Northern Sweden, Gustafsson is a saxophonist/composer/improviser working across noise, electronics, contemporary rock and free jazz as well as contemporary dance, theater and art projects. He has performed both as a solo artist and toured internationally with Peter Brötzmann, Sonic Youth, Merzbow, Jim O´Rourke, Barry Guy, Otomo Yoshihide, Yoshimi, Ken Vandermark and in working groups The Thing, Sonore, FIRE!, Gush, Boots Brown, Swedish Azz and Nash Kontroll. He also participates in the large ensembles Barry Guy New Orchestra, Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet and the NU – ensemble.

ANDREAS WERLIIN
Born in 1982 in the vast snow of northern Sweden and raised in the small west coast village Strömstad. With improvised music at heart and drums as main instrument he is currently part of some well acclaimed and award-winning bands like Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Dan Berglund's Tonbruket and Loney Dear. He has also written music for theater and film.

JOHAN BERTHLING
Plays bass (double and electric) as main instrument but also uses guitar and other instruments. Active on the Swedish improvised scene since the late 90’s but doesn’t stay true to any genre: he works in all kinds music.
