This is a song that turned out completely different than I intended it to be, thanks to the contribution of my beautiful studio band and my magical producer. It touches me – I think it says something about how people see me, and it feels consoling. I intended the arrangement to be more agressive and dramatic, and now it actually has a playful, lighter touch (and still enough drama 🙂
Well, it certainly also says something about the musicians. I´m very impressed how everybody felt their way into it, especially because it`s not a standard arrangement, and I am very thankful for the inspirantions everbody put into it.
Enjoy Michael Leuschner on Flugelhorn, Randall Brown on guitar, Dirk Ritz on bass and Marco Moeller on Drums.
Listen closely to detect the Berimbau – a bow lute that I made myself years ago in Sao Luis and brought back from Brasil. It is used to accompany Capoeira, a Brazilian marcial art that is disguised in a dance.


New Music: Kanikau – Vocal Electro

Kanikau (Lamento) – when my sweet Makani died, a friend said that I should write a song for her. Here it is https://listen.music-hub.com/AdmPbe

She was passed on to me by a friend who found her in a natural reserve when she was very little. Makani always knew what she wanted, and she loved music. When I was singing and playing the piano, she used to join me and sit under the Keyboard. Aloha my dear little friend.

Beggar – When a strange dream turns into a song


When you have everything, you have everything to loose
That doesn`t mean so much to you, if you don`t put it to use 

I´ve been practicing lucid dreaming – I love exploring the mind (and getting ideas for songs :-)). Two tricks to know whether you are dreaming or not: 1. Check where you have been before you came where you are – dreams usually don`t have a realistic timeline. 2. Look at what is behind you, look straight, look behind you again. In dreams, the scenery is likely to have changed.
In lucid dreams, you can interfere with your dream reality to a certain extend. That gave me a deeper understanding, that we may have more influence on our lives than we think. It`s not easy to change the mindset, but it`s worth it – be happy

Enjoy Randall Brown on Guitar, Dirk Ritz on Bass, Marco Moeller on Drums
