CareerEdit

After the split-up of his ska band Monster, Wendin took a new direction and released Moneybrother's debut album Blood Panic in 2003. His second album, To Die Alone, was released in 2005. The music of Moneybrother can be described as a soul-oriented blend, incorporating influences from rock, reggae and disco. In December 2006, Moneybrother released his third album, Pengabrorsan. The title is a literal Swedish translation of Moneybrother, and the album is his first in the Swedish language. It consists of cover versions of English songs, translated into Swedish. August 2007 saw the release of his fourth album Mount Pleasure, which debuted at number one on the Swedish album chart.[1]

In 2017, Wendin participated in the eighth season of the Swedish reality TV-show Så mycket bättre.[2]
