Today is February 1:st. A year ago today I participated in the songwriting project FAWM (February Album Writing Month) in which I challanged myself to write 15 songs in one month. It was a really good experience and I learned a lot about goal-setting and the way inspiration works. You can still listen to a selection of the songs I wrote here on the website. Some of them will probably be on the next album. I will not participate this year as I have too much other stuff going on at the moment. However, my fellow musician Martin Johansson (Anikee) said he will do it and document everything with video recordings of every new song. Good luck Martin! He hasn’t started yet but you can follow his progress on his website: http://www.anikee.net/
As some of you have noticed, the Orphan Songs debut album has not been available on Spotify and other streaming services for a while. This is because I had to get rid of my old publishing contract. But soon it will be back online again.
Once a week, I get together with my friend and fellow musician Martin Johansson a.k.a. Anikee. We don’t have a rehearsal room so we usually meet at my summer cabin. There is no heat this time of year so we have to squezee into the smallest room and turn on the fan to get the temperature up. Then, for a couple of hours, it’s all about red wine, guitars and voices in the flickering candle light. For the last couple of months we have been preparing five songs each to eventually record an acoustic album. This clip is a song of Martin’s called “No serenity”. The video was recorded with Martin’s Iphone. I think it turned out pretty good. More videos to come.
