The Drifters are a Swedish dansband with a long history dating back to the 1960s that broke through to mainstream success in 2008 with the Top Five hit album Tycker Om Dig. Founded in 1962, the band underwent numerous lineup changes over the years and was originally all-male before later featuring female lead singers. While the mid-'90s lineup featuring lead singer Marie ArturÃ©n had some success with albums such as NÃ¤sta GÃ¥ng Det Blir Sommar (1994), the Drifters took their success to another level with the addition of lead singer Erica SjÃ¶strÃ¶m in 1999. SjÃ¶strÃ¶m (born on June 30, 1970) made her Drifters album debut with PÃ¥ BegÃ¤ran (1999) and was featured on the follow-up albums Om Du Vill Ha Mig (2002), Det Har Jag Ã…ngrat Tusenfalt (2004), KÃ¤rleken Ã…r Inget Spel (2006), and Ett Liv Med Dig (2007). The latter album was the band's most successful to date, reaching number 31 on the Swedish albums chart, and it set the stage for the Drifters' mainstream breakthrough the following year with Tycker Om Dig: SvÃ¤ngiga LÃ¥tar FrÃ¥n FÃ¶rr (2008), which was a smash hit, going all the way to number two on the albums chart. ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
