On American Soil

Today I’ve had a long flight, about 16 hours in total with the transfers included. I’ve visited the airport of Reykjavik and flown over the majestic landscape of Iceland. I thereafter ended up on an 8 hour flight to Seattle, where I was greeted into the US with a bunch of questions about my stay I have never gotten in any other country I’ve visited before. If I carry any plants was probably the weirdest question. Other questions had the purpose of gathering information about how long I was planning to stay (a return ticket is a must), what my budget was and how I was planning on traveling in the country. Arriving at San Francisco airport I was picked up by my friend Johan, and we traveled by car to see the exquisite view of San Francisco by night, before heading towards Monterey.
So here I am now, in a house close to the sea at the coast of California. I have already begun enthusing about the differences in our material daily lives. For instance, the house has doors with doorknobs – very unusual for me and I had to ask how to look the door. The sink contains one of those classic disposal systems you always come across in movies. And everything is huge! Stove, washing machines (those classic ones with lid on the top, lovely!), tables, chairs, sofas. If I was shorter I would feel like Alice in Wonderland drinking a bottle of shrinking potion. After being awake for more than 24 hours, I will try to sleep on the comfortable couch that I now occupy.

Wonder and Magic

Cover for Four Leaf CloverTwo songs are now available on Spotify. Since a lot of people nowadays use Spotify, it feels great since it finally gives me the opportunity to really share my music. Writing music is something that I just do. I never decide to do it, I just have to write sometimes. If I can share that personal experience and realize people enjoy listening to my music, it is all I ever wished for. Songs can be full of imagination and have a story to tell. I hope to bring a little wonder and magic into the world.

Cozy Saturday Gig


This Saturday I had the pleasure to perform at a private birthday party of a former colleague. I played mostly original material, but also some covers as the guests were arriving. Let’s call it a mingle gig, shall we. It was fun and cozy! Here’s a pic from the event, as I played the piano in the magical candle light.
