With a folky indie-sound and a touch of emo-pop CountingSomeStars was formed in
2012 in the small town of Ystad, Sweden.
After leaving his metalcore-band in the summer of 2012 frontman Natanael Summer started to play acoustic guitar with his friends in the garden of the town’s abbey every night for the rest of the summer, just for fun. When high-school started he met new friends and he invited them to play in a band playing the songs he wrote that summer. After changing between a solo-project and a band for a while Natanael finally decided to keep CountingSomeStars a solo-project, but with a full band on stage.
