Artist Biography
Available in:
Josefin Nilsson (22 March 1969 – 29 February 2016) was a Swedish singer and actress. She founded the Ainbusk group with her sister Marie Nilsson and two friends Annelie Roswall and Birgitta "Bittis" Jakobsson. They were noticed by Benny Andersson who wrote them two songs that were successful in Sweden. They released their first EP in 1990.

In 1992, she received the Ulla Billquist scholarship, an award that encourages young artists. The following year, her first solo album, Shapes was written and produced by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson of the ABBA group and ranked 14th in Swedish sales. She played the role of Svetlana in the Swedish version of Chess in 2002 and participated in the Melodifestivalen (Swedish national selections for the Eurovision Song Contest) solo in 2005 and with her group Ainbusk in 2008. She released several albums with her band from 1993 to 2008 and was noticed in a few movies but had to take a break due to health problems.

In 2015, Benny Andersson wrote a new track that she recorded with Marie Nilsson but it was not released in digital version until four years later. In 2016, she gave a few concerts in Gotland with her sister Marie. Shortly after undergoing hip surgery, Josefin died in her home in Gotland, on 29 February 2016, a few weeks before her 47th birthday.
