Celebrating 2018

What a musical year it has been. Looking back at 2018 I’ve learned so much about writing, recording and producing music.

While kicking off the year with ‘’Vibes’’ I was entering the last stages of producing my debut EP Reliving. Sharing this creative process here and on the LPU forum was so much fun! Then in February I got this website online and in June I put out Reliving. Both were big personal achievements and I couldn’t have done it without my listeners and supporters. So thank you!

Before we enter a new year I want to celebrate with you ‘my’ 2018 with the playlist below. Featuring music that has inspired me throughout 2018 and some of my own tracks.

Happy Holidays! Looking forward to another year full of great music 😉

Post-Reliving post

Hey there! Today I’m giving you a quick update on what I’ve been up to for the last couple months. Originally I planned to take a break from music after releasing my debut EP Reliving in June. To my own surprise however, I haven’t stopped creating at all. Ideas have been flowing constantly, which has led me to work on multiple new projects, both my own and collaborations.

As of today, I have a couple of tracks in the works and some are progressing really well! There’s no album or EP forming at the moment, so I’ll probably release these separately. Either way, keep an eye on this website as I’ll post new stuff when it’s ready.

Also worth mentioning: I’m currently learning to play guitar and it’s so much fun! I find it to be more challenging than learning piano due to the difficulty of placing the fingers correctly. Soon I may take some lessons to learn more quickly. Until then, YouTube tutorials will do 😀

I’m Stagelight Artist of the month!

I’m excited to announce that Open Labs has proclaimed me Stagelight Artist of the month June 2018! It’s the second time they have chosen me, after announcing me Artist of the month back in December 2015. Open Labs’ Stagelight software enabled me to easily create music from the start and they’ve always been very supportive of my work. Read the announcement post and stream my debut EP Reliving, also produced with Stagelight, now on their website: http://us.openlabs.com/community/.

‘’Fighting the Storms’’ out now

Surprise! ‘’Fighting the Storms’’ is here, the second single of my debut EP Reliving.

I had so much fun working on this track. Originally it only consisted of some piano chords and melodies, but it grew out to be this epic rock song. A massive thank you to Riffs at Random for recording guitars, bass and programming drums! This track wouldn’t have been possible without you. Also, many thanks to TheDamian58C for your feedback on the early version!

Reliving is out June 8. Subscribe to the newsletter to get the new music first: https://bit.ly/2GybVPS

New video for ‘’The Spark’’

Just premiered a new video for ‘’The Spark’’! Join me in reliving some of my fondest memories, from my early childhood to present day.

This project required some good amount of digging through our home video recordings. It was fun to come across things I had completely forgotten about, like that clip of me playing a keyboard toy at 02:07. Let me know your favorite clip from this video!
