Loney Dear is the moniker currently used by multi-instrumentalist and home-recording phenomenon, Emil Svanängen from Jönköping, Sweden. Until 2009, Svanängen recorded and released four records as Loney, dear. In 2009 he slightly changed this name, skipping the comma in Loney, dear. He is now recording and releasing music as Loney Dear. Both names exist on Last.fm, so (for as long as the two are not merged) please try to get this right: it differs per album!
