Linda Fredriksson shares their debut solo album Juniper on We Jazz Records. Linda has been working on the compositions heard on the album for several years, composing them mostly on guitar, keys and by singing. Only later have they been arranged for the band heard on the album, including Fredriksson on saxes and various instruments, Tuomo Prättälä on Rhodes, Moog and piano, Minna Koivisto on modular synth, Moog and OP, Olavi Louhivuori on drums, and Mikael Saastamoinen on bass, plus featuring Matti Bye on piano.

At heart, Juniper is a "singer-songwriter album", performed by an instrumental jazz band. The album is a world unto itself, and Fredriksson describes the process of making Juniper as one of isolation and of learning slowly to do new things. The influence list for the album name checks the likes of Feist, Neil Young, Alice Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Eric Dolphy and Fever Ray, yet the number one inspiration for Fredriksson prior to making the album was "Carrie and Lowell", the 2017 album by Sufjan Stevens.

The album has been made in two different studios, three homes, two summer cottages and four working spaces. It was recorded with professional studio equipment but also with an iPhone and on a basic built-in laptop speaker.
