Side by side, from aside

Posted on Posted in news

Yesterday I took a day off to join my daughter who participates in the international Side by side music festival held in town this week (here’s more info about it). There has been a lot said about the initiative behind this great gathering. In short though, it is an open festival for amateur and professional choirs […]

A great review in Belgium

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in news, Reviews

I got a great review in Belgian online magazine Rootstime.be. I think it was great at least, after driving the review through Google translate. Or was it even my album. I mean, the album cover was really familiar, but due to google translate the album name was “Child of Angered”. Click here to read the review. […]

One year with a record deal

Posted on Posted in news

Time flies, and still it feels like a universe of time that has passed since I started this blog proclaiming I had got myself a record deal. In clock-time it has been exactly one year today. And it has been a trembling year for sure. The start-up with my first post, where I promised to make […]

Back home safe, happy but tired

Posted on Posted in Live gigs, news

We’ll now I’m back home from London I’m tired but happy after two club shows, and a couple of days off, doing the tourist thing. Summarizing it I think it all went rather well.

But going alone to make two club concerts by myself in London is something completely different. […]

My songs: “Popsong”

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in news, Songs

This is the oldest of my own songs on my album. Even though it reflects the digital paradigm change in the music industry, it has surprisingly been up to date all the time since I wrote it six years ago for my current project Escalator to nowhere. “Popsong” was also recorded once before and released on our […]
