For a year now I’ve been sharing songs with you, as they came to me. Raw, unpolished and - mostly - unproduced. Recorded them in a hallway, a bedroom or on a phone. I wondered what would happen if instead of having a strategy I would just let myself fall forward and let the songs be boss for a while. To not start - as all wise people were telling me - with a plan or a direction, but to let the songs guide me.
The songs went places, they were listened to in America, England, Israel and Palestine - and even in war torn Aleppo. They meant different things to different people, and I enjoyed keeping my options open - but realized that there would come a time when I needed to tie them down and regain some control. That time is coming and it shapes are slowly materializing. First step: a new website
, it has all songs from the one song a week
project in almost one glance. I would really like to thank Jitske Schols
for her photography and Floor Koomen
for her logo and design. I hope you enjoy it too. And if you have the time to tell me what song out of those 22 is your favorite, I’d love to hear from you.
