Mark my words

Ahoi!

I added a brand new lyrics-section to the media on this page. The first song featured in there is Black Widow, a very personal and absurdly fun song considering the more than dark undertones. Or overtones. In-your-face-tones. You get it.

Let me know if you’d like to see any lyrics in particular. There are still a few stashed away in several of my drawers.

Digital fist bump.

The Process

Bonn, January 24th 2018

Ahoi!

Do you guys know song exploder?

It’s this incredibly cool podcast by  Hrishikesh Hirway. It features all kinds of musicians that explain the process of making a certain song of theirs, the intricacies of the lyrics, the instrumental and harmonic choices and how it all came together in the studio. I find this format fascinating, because it shows how every single artist or band has such a unique approach to composing, writing and producing. It’s food for thought, to say the least, and more often than not a lesson in productive creativity.

So… I was wondering.

I’d love to do something similar for my own songs, possibly as a short video series. As I am developing this new record of mine it could be fun to pick apart the different songs and talk about the musical and lyrical background and the initial ideas that resulted in writing the songs.

Care for a little feedback? Would you be interested in watching something like that? Let me know.

Also – if you want to check out the song exploder podcast, here’s a link to their website:

P.S.: I added some fresh show dates for you lovelies in the GIGS category.

 

Are you ready for this?

Hello World,
it’s me. How lovely of you to come visit. How are you today? Anything that made you happy or sad this morning? Let’s talk.
I myself would like to share my journey with you. You don’t have to care or listen, I’ll put it out there and you decide if this means anything to you.
The first few steps of said journey have already been taken. I have felt, – and felt excessively -, I have sung, I have written for as long as I can remember.

I still do.

But there’s a lot more to this story and I want to explore as much of it as possible. With you. Maybe?
Let’s stay in touch.
