Someone put together a great list a while back: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/10621530 My favourite band (out of all the music I listen to, not just Swedish haha) is Den svenska björnstammen :)

Håkan Hellström, great pop. Laleh is another good one.

For older singer-songwriters: Cornelis Vreeswijk (funny lyrics) Evert Taube (The face of the new 50-kronor banknote) Fred Åkerström.

I've been looking for some good Swedish-language recording artists as well. Unfortunately no luck so far. Many of my favourite artists are Scandinavian, but they sing in English, not their native languages :(

If you still haven't found one, Veronica Maggio is a good swedish pop singer, along with Håkan Hellström!

Movits are my cup of tea. Their music is described as swing mixed with hip hop with a hint of jazz. In other words, you can't help but nod and tap your foot to the music. http://youtu.be/LnaeImQ0TSg

If you don't know any Swedish singer/band yet, download Spotify and go to the Swedish Top 50, you'll find a lot of Swedish musics there and will probably find an artist that you like. It's a good start!

Sista Mannen På Jorden is my personal favorite. There is also the 80's band Nasa, who sang mostly in English, but had one Swedish language song, Nattensdrömmar. They also tried to release an album in the USA but the record company here were not nice, and buried it in the vault, so they released a Swedish language version in Sweden under the name Henzel and Thors.

If you like female pop, I like Veronica Maggio, Linnea Henriksson, Laleh, and Petra Marklund.

I'm still looking for nice hearty Swedish acoustic from the past decade (like Tallest Man On Earth... but in his native language of Swedish???), and dark, slow, brooding RnB à la Frank Ocean / Kelela etc. Haven't found much of that yet. There are, of course, a ton of accomplished Swedish musicians that primarily release music in English lol.

Not sure if it's exactly what you look for but… Titiyo, Miss Li, Lars Winnerbäck, Bo Kaspers Orkester, Markus Krunegård.

You are right, most sing in english :)
