Featuring track: One Shoe Fits All
Latest X-mas song with 12-string Guitar, piano, flute, tenor recorder, violin, synth, base, voice.
There seems to be no answer to todays turmoil, nor any way to cope with it on a personal level. Yet there are signs of new hope and awakening, although we may fail to see how these will turn the tide when that is needed most, being no more than tokens of an undercurrent ever growing in intensity as worldwide awareness waxes. While situations are becoming too complex for us to gauge, no simple remedy will cure all that is going wrong. All we can do is to rely on this undercurrent and feed the one force that is behind it, by practicing the single solution the song rejoices in.

Bio

Where did this all start...Born in Amsterdam where I was raised on milk, butter and music.
No better place to grow up than with parents loving music more than life. Sources were radio and 78-rpm hand-started player, and a box stuffed with classical and folk music records. My mother filled the gaps with her legacy repertoire. The kids did most of their singing in the back of the car. Soon little me was being equipped with an harmonica. Enabling him to create his own 2nd voices. Then came a dull period when serieus music lessons started on flutes, the recorder type, in a class room with lots of other kids.
One day they brought in a piano, my brother's favourite. I courted it for a year but changed it for a greater love: the neigbour's violin. My brother meant it as a joke, but the violin turned out to be a lover that wasn't easily kept satisfied.
The lonely job of climbing to an acceptable level was mitigated somewhat by creating my own songs with the help of a cheap guitar. Since then a few bands have come and gone, and after a few years as a sound engineer I started my own studio. While earning a living as an IT professional, I rediscovered the harmonica and the violin, so now most of my time goes into playing and writing new songs. It is great to hear people like my music! So if you come around, please don't hesitate to tell me what you think about it.
