Tobias Wiklund comes from the northern town of Gävle in Sweden, a city known for its strong music traditions and snowy winters.
With many family members and friends playing music it became a natural path to start playing.
At first the trumpet was only the random choice of a young boy, but in time it became a strong part of his identity, and the dream to play music at the highest level started to develop.
With heroes like Louis Armstrong and Kenny Wheeler, he early on got introduced to the many faces of jazz.
After finishing his music education in Sweden, he moved to Denmark to attend the “Rytmisk Musikkonservatorium”. Tobias quickly became a strong part of the Danish music scene playing with some of the most prominent acts like Snorre Kirk, Maria Faust and the The Danish Radio Big Band. Despite living in Copenhagen Tobias still keeps close contact with the Swedish jazz scene often playing with different acts.
