Hi friends and fans.
It’s an understatement to say that 2020 has been a transformative year for the whole world and in my personal opinion, in not a lot of good ways, except for music.
I wanted to take some time to recap for you some of what I feel were my most memorable and favorite albums I released over the year, though I still have 3 left to go for the month of December.
In January, I released dreaming the Timeless Dream (a Tribute to Edgar Froese) my first album where I experimented with the Berlin school sound a bit. It’s had some airplay and a nice review from one world music radio and if you like this style of music, I am confident that you’ll enjoy this release.
In February, I put out Bad Seed, an album which speaks to issues of profound and severe child abuse through the eyes of a fictional protagonist who endured such life altering trauma but managed to find healing in the end: a profound album that paints a picture of bleak desperation transformed into hope for the future.
In march, who knew that our world would change forever because of a virus? It wouldn’t be until May that I would finish working on but everybody’s gone, so I will never know, an album is still as relevant today as it was 7 months ago which, even now, seems like another lifetime.
Finally, like so many other artists, starting in April, I began giving isolation concerts over the internet, though there were no visuals to go along with them, all the webcams were sold out near the beginning of the pandemic but people seem to enjoy my concerts even without visual accompaniments. The Isolation Concerts, Volume 12, is one of my favorites in the series.
It is my hope that my music has helped you cope with one of the most unusual years in our modern history and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and comments on my sonic excursions over this last year.
