Björn Ulvaeus (born April 1945) is a Swedish singer, songwriter, and producer.
Björn’s fame skyrocketed with the creation of ABBA in 1972, dominating the music scene for a decade. Alongside Benny Andersson, he wrote the hit musical “Chess” in the 1980s and “Kristina from Duvemåla” in 1995. Björn also produced the iconic musical “Mamma Mia!” and its subsequent adaptations.
As the president of CISAC, he leads an organisation supporting songwriters worldwide and is deeply involved in developing new rules around the use of AI in music.
In 2021, ABBA announced their comeback with the release of the album “Voyage” and a groundbreaking virtual stage show ABBA Voyage in London with ticket sales in excess of 2 million in its first 19 months.
Björn co-founded Pophouse in 2014 together with EQT founder Conni Jonsson. Pophouse acquires and develops entertainment brands within music, podcast and gaming, and the company began a serious venture into music catalogue investments in 2022.
