Hello, dear cynics and dreamers. Thank you for visiting my web site.
Normally, this page would be where you would find a short biography about me in the third person, including a musical resumé and a pompous description of my singing and songwriting abilities. I decided to skip that, and instead cut straight to the heart of it:
For the past eight years I have been writing and recording songs for my debut album, which I have not yet dared to release to the world. It has been a loooong process, which makes it all the more scary to soon let it all out in the open. Also, these songs mean so much to me, and I suppose part of me dreads the rejection one always faces from some when releasing music. However: I think I am ready now. Either way, it is time I let go.
I am overcome with gratitude of how blessed I am to know so many wonderfully talented artists and musicians, who have taken part in this process and that have each contributed to putting their colors on my black and white song-sketches.
This music will, hopefully, when completed reflect some of the joy, the heartache and the utter confusion it can mean to be alive. (I know, that sounds insanely pretentious. If anyone ever cracks the code to writing about emotion and art without sounding like an ass, please do let me know.) In all honesty though, I believe that despite my what some may deem limited life experience, I have something to say. And I want to share it with you. I hope that through this I can convey something that can resonate within you. If I can pull that off, this is something I proudly can represent, forever.
So, I hope you will want to tune in. And until this album is ready…. Here are some pieces from my old life. It may give you an idea of who I am, or was.
Thank you. ♡
