‘’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!

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!

Making my first video

First of all, I must say I’m overwhelmed by the positive response to ‘’The Spark’’! I can’t stress enough how much I appreciate it. Thank you!

Next thing coming up before the release of Reliving is a video for ‘’The Spark’’. My friend twotimesthedime, who did the cover art for the EP, helped me shoot the footage. It was a hot day and we were exhausted when we wrapped up, but it was fun to do something like this for a change. Here’s a snapshot:

Besides filming new material, I’m using our own home video recordings to create a certain narrative. The video will premiere soon! If you haven’t already, subscribe to the newsletter to not miss the release: https://bit.ly/2GybVPS

Shout out to the LPU, LPLive and Stagelight communities for your continued support! I can’t wait to finally share the music with you.

Making my first EP: Finishing touches

Good news! Writing, mixing and mastering is all done. That means the music is finished and ready to invade your ears. Right now I’m putting the finishing touches on the EP package and artwork and I’m planning the release schedule. Here’s a sneak peek into the final tracklist:

EP tracklist

Most tracks have new names because the working titles didn’t fit anymore. The Keys is now called ‘’The Spark’’, Ascension has become ‘’Fighting the Storms’’ and thanks to the votes of the LPU community, Wood’s final name is ‘’Abandoned Roots’’. ‘’Milky Way’’ and ‘’Anything’’ have kept their working titles. Sadly the demo Bananas didn’t make the cut, because the EP makes more sense to me without it. I’m saving it for a separate release.

An announcement will be here soon 😉

Making my first EP: ”Wood” (demo)

Here we are, a first proper look into my upcoming EP. I’m really excited to share this!

This early version of Wood dates back to August 12 2017. I had been working on the EP for about a month and this track was one of the first to shape up quickly: it already had a structure, melodies and various layers. I’m very satisfied with how this track has progressed over time and you’ll be able to hear that when the EP comes out. It doesn’t really represent the sound of the entire project though, because the other songs are not as experimental.

As ‘’Wood’’  obviously is a working title, I want the final version to have a more fitting name. In order to decide this, I’m asking you to let me know in the comments which of the following names you think fits best:

– ‘’Woods’’
– ‘’Abandoned Roots’’
– ‘’Buried Roots’’
– ‘’Ending Cycles’’
