“It’s you” on YouTube (lyric video)

Welcome to my next lyric video! This one is for “it’s you”, the 3rd track on my album. This song is extra special to me because it’s the first one I ever wrote. I was 17, experiencing heartache for the first time, and the whole song just came out as I was fiddling on my guitar in my attic bedroom. So through that pretty gloomy experience I discovered something delightful: songwriting! So thanks, seventeen year old anonymous blue eyed heart breaker… πŸ˜‰

“Ghosts”, lyric video (YouTube)

Here is another installment in my series of lyric videos on YouTube! I hope you enjoy it… “Ghosts” is the second track of my album, and it was a lot of fun to record. The creaky door in the beginning was the door in the studio that would groan whenever we needed SILENCE. But then when we thought: “Hey, we could actually use a squeaky door sound on this one…” it took us three tries before we got a peep out of it. Ghosts in the studio, I tell you! πŸ™‚

Album release!

I’m very happy to announce that from today you can buy the full album on

CDbaby,

iTunes

Amazon

and virtually any other digital outlet! (Spotify! Pandora! Deezer! Napster! Yaaaay!) Also, Soundcloud.

I’m so excited! I hope you will enjoy my music πŸ™‚

“Come on over here” on YouTube

Over the next couple of weeks I will be sharing the tracks of my album, “Love is love” with you on YouTube! Here is the first song of the album. It’s called “Come on over here” and it was one of the most fun tracks to record ever! (I think/ hope you can hear that πŸ™‚ ) It had Daniel playing the violin like a real fiddler, me enjoying the catchy choruses and all three of us clapping.

The funny thing is when I wrote it I had my guitar tuned in an alternative way and I had these really different sounding chords for it… But then during a party at our place someone must have re-tuned that guitar, because the next time I wanted to play it to make a little demo, it was back to a standard tuning! And I couldn’t remember the chords from before (because I didn’t remember what the “weird” tuning was). Aaaah! So I sang the melody and came up with different chords for it, and it transformed the song from something quite melancholic sounding to… well, THIS! I’m very happy with the result, so I guess whoever tuned that guitar back then was right πŸ˜‰

I hope you enjoy!

Love is love single

Dear patient people!

Since the album is taking a little longer to wrap up, I thought today would be a good day to share some audio with you. “Love is love”, the album’s title song, will come out as the first single of the album in a couple of days, but I made a YouTube video for it so you can enjoy it there for free from today already. Hope you enjoy…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

 

Album preview!

It’s been forever since I updated this little blog of mine… I’ve been busy with orchestra work and moving into our new flat. But now something exciting is happening again on the album front, so definitely share-worthy: the first mixes of my album are in!

I guess my face says it all? (Lucille, on the other hand, seems to have her own thoughts about the whole thing.)

Stay tuned for more updates!

YouTube adventures: Nothing compares 2 U

It’s a wrap!

All 11 songs for my album are recorded! Now it’s waiting for July to come around to travel back to Zagreb and record still some double bass and drums on some tracks… But basically it’s all there and almost ready to be mixed and mastered! Feeling so grateful for this whole adventure, and especially for these two supermen, Daniel and Mark, without whom the cd would have still been nothing but a dream.

I can’t wait to share some audio with you soon 😊

 

Ready, steady, go!
