The War Is Over

01:39 PM

The-War-Is-Over-(small) The second song I have released from my third demo CD “What Tomorrow Brings” is called “The War Is Over”. This song is about a woman who finds herself alone at the end of a war. Though the war has ended, which is normally cause for rejoice, she finds it difficult to be happy. She sees a lot of men returning from the frontline and being reunited with their families. But no one will come home to her as she lost both her husband and only son in the war. This was the image in my mind while working on this song.

An Evening In The Snow

08:16 PM

An Evening In The SnowIt has been a while since I last released a completely new song. I did try to write, but I couldn’t find enough inspiration. As I didn’t want to force it, I even stopped trying for a while. But then I suddenly found myself playing a new melody on the piano again, which resulted in this song called “An Evening In The Snow”. Since then, I’ve managed to write a couple of more songs for a new demo CD that I hope to finish somewhere this year.

Though we haven’t had any snow where I live this year, I am aware that many other countries are having problems with too much snow. Snow may cause a lot of problems in daily life, but there is also a beautiful side to snow. Especially in the evening, it can transform the world into a magical place. The combination of snow with light and shadows from the moon or street lamps can be incredible. While working out this song, I thought of walking in the snow in the evening.

Bruach Na Cairraige Baine

07:58 PM

Bruach Na Cairraige Baine Another song from my second demo CD “Fighting Shadows”. This is the only song on that album that I did not write myself (with the exception of the bridge). It is a traditional Irish song about unrequited love and it is one of my favourite Irish songs. My first conscious recollection of this song is a duet by Mary Black and Séamus Begley. I discovered later that I already knew an instrumental version of this song by Clannad.

In Search Of Meaning

12:38 PM

In Search Of Meaning
A song from my 2nd demo CD “Fighting Shadows”. Everyone comes to a point in life were one wonders what the meaning is of one’s life. But maybe it isn’t about the meaning itself, but about the search for it. That’s the idea I had when writing this song.

My second demo CD “Fighting Shadows” consists of twelve tracks. I wrote eleven tracks myself and the twelfth track is a traditional Irish song called “Bruach Na Carraige Baine” which I arranged myself.

This is the full track list:
1. Fighting Shadows
2. Empty Days
3. When The Sun Goes Down
4. When Dreams Fall Apart
5. In Search Of Meaning
6. Leaving To Return
7. When Angels Sleep
8. Morning Light
9. Going Out
10. Feeling Lost
11. Bruach Na Carraige Baine
12. Time To Say Goodbye

For a couple of these songs, I already have a version available on my site (those have a link in the list above), however the versions on the CD are new mixes. I am considering the options to make this demo CD available to others. The current set of CDs that I made are meant for friends, family and those who can help me further with my music.
