about

Music has a life of its own, and so does this record. The creation process developed its very own nature combining my love for stripped-down acoustic folk songs with modern arrangements. All tunes have been recorded within a short period of time to give you an authentic snapshot of my current musical life.

I do not know what future holds, but I promise to keep on making music and always to follow my heart!

Track Name: Whispering Winds
Recently I’ve watched the green grass
Turning grey
And I asked myself
Are those roots turning away
Day in day out
I am just thinking
Could my next step leave the right one right behind me
Day in day out
I am just just pouring
Will my next word keep a soul remaining close to me
I'm afraid that we may sink into obscurity

Curve at the endless sea
Hiding tides; hiding next to me
White horses; ferociously
Growing depth; to feel serenity

And lately my
Spirit cried for peace
He told me I
Should come to a world of canyons deep; to an old land
Where he said my
Mind has a chance to be free
And whispering winds
Are the only curiosity

Curve at the endless sea
Hiding tides; hiding next to me
White horses; ferociously
Growing depth; to feel serenity
Curve at the endless sea
Hiding tides; hiding next to me
White horses; ferociously
Growing depth; to feel serenity
Curve at the endless sea
Hiding tides; hiding next to me
White horses; ferociously
Growing depth; to feel serenity
To feel serenity
To feel serenity
To feel serenity
Track Name: River Down the Lane
And all those recurring motions
Always have to sing along
Thinking about your own place
Chasing footsteps to belong
This world is so confusing
Or maybe it’s just you
The clouds are always moving
But you are moving too

And now you're walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
Keep on walking; alongside
Your river down the lane

With your shoes off; you’re dancing along
With your head back; smiling at the sun
It’s a calm creek; he’ll keep who you are
When you’re balancing to walk the line

Raindrops trickling; they’re passing by
Always watching; your own blind sides
You are weary; of memory games
You’re trying to; stand by your lane

And now you’re walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
Keep on walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
And now you’re walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
Keep on walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
Now you’re walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
Keep on walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
Now you’re walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
And now you’re walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
Keep on walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
Keep on walking; alongside
Your river down the lane
Track Name: Times
Oh my muse
What would I be
Without you
Oh my muse
Can you tell me
What to do
Cause there are times
When I need you
To be my words
Cause there are times
The path before me
Disappears

Oh my muse
I’m thankful
You found me
Oh my muse
I can hear you
A smile for me
Cause you will always be
The same
You will always
Move my heart
You will never
Fade away
You will always
Be one part
Track Name: Rustling Trees
Oh rustling trees
Whispering to me
Take all my sorrows
Cause I won't need them tomorrow
Oh rustling trees
It’s aching inside
As no one wants
You’ll seek me

People seem to change so fast
Or maybe it’s my mirrored path
I'm standing silently apart
Dust and wind; but there's a start

Oh rustling trees
Whispering to me
Take all my sorrows
Cause I won't need them tomorrow
Oh rustling trees
Whispering to me
Take all that's mine
And I'll be happy inside

Oh rustling trees
Your wrinkled leaves
They tell me a story
Of falling free
Of falling free

People seem to change so fast
Or maybe it’s my mirrored path
I'm standing silently apart
Dust and wind; but there's a start

Oh rustling trees
Whispering to me
Take all my sorrows
Cause I won’t need them tomorrow
Oh rustling trees
Your wrinkled leaves
They tell me a story
Of falling free
Of falling free
