Sune Rose Wagner is a critically acclaimed songwriter and producer, most commonly known as the vocalist and guitarist of The Raveonettes, a band widely credited as one of the key influencers in the garage rock revival scene of the noughties. Tom Petty and Stephen King list The Raveonettes “Love in A Trash Can” amongst their favorite and most treasured records. Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan, Martin Gore and Julian Casablanca from The Strokes have voiced their admiration for Sune’s work and luminaries such as Little Steven and Johnny Marr(The Smiths) claim to be longtime fans.
In December 2014, Sune scored his first commercial no.1 hit in Germany, having co-written “Blue Heart” for contestant Charley Ann Schmutzler, for popular TV show ‘The Voice’. He recently co-wrote and co-produced an album for Danish platinum singer-songwriter, Mads Langer, released on Sony Music and is currently producing Carl Emil’s record on Universal Music, Denmark.
Sune has also achieved indie chart success as a producer. ‘Too True’ by Dum Dum Girls, is a collaboration with legendary songwriter and Blondie producer, Richard Gottehrer. The album reached no.1 on the CMJ charts and remained at top spot for 4 consecutive weeks.
Sune’s success and versatility as a songwriter is perhaps even more evident when considering the vast number of creative syncs under his name. Over the last two decades he has generated millions of dollars from syncs alone. His songs feature regularly on TV shows, commercials and film soundtracks. The list includes leading brands such as Jim Beam, Lego, Toyota, Converse, Corona, Nationwide, Lacoste, The Gap and Tumi. Hit shows like The OC, CSI, True Blood, Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries and Lucifer have featured tracks penned by the prolific songwriter and producer who also wrote and recorded a track for the hugely popular video game "Batman: Arkham City".
Films such as “Still Alice”, “Molly’s Game”, “Whip It”, “Drive Angry”, “Trick ‘r Treat”, “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playground” stand out amongst his long list of sync coups. “The Christmas Song” written in 2008 remains one of Sune’s most successful works, it continues to feature in countless Christmas compilations and television commercials every year and was used in the opening scene of silver screen modern classic “Christmas With The Kranks”.
While Sune continues to consolidate his legacy as a songwriter and producer, present and future projects see him expanding into the world of film. He recently scored his first feature film "A War", which was nominated for an Oscar in 2016. His success in the field has led to big-name projects such as the music production/ orchestration for a season 6 "Game Of Thrones" trailer. 2017 was a promising year for Sune in film, his recent sync contribution “Recharge And Revolt”, which appeared on the critically acclaimed and award-winning British drama “American Honey” won Best Individual Sync in the Film category at the Music Week Sync Awards 2017. He was recently commissioned to re-work and record several covers for the original Netflix series "Altered Carbon".
