about

"Strings" is my debut album. Its unique sound is a soothing mix of acoustic and electric guitars, with influences from bands such as Radiohead, Coldplay and Pink Floyd.

Since I finished recording my demo's, I quickly followed writing new songs, as well as improving old tracks. This has led to a collection of new material.

So don't be suprised to hear some old songs in here. I have spent a lot of time improving tracks, and re-inventing them. You might recognize some songs from his demo album, for example the songs "Goodbye" and "The Angels Fly". I have been tweaking these songs since the release of my demo album, which resulted in totally different versions.

With few resources, I have been able to write, mix, and master these songs on my own. Many days of recording were needed to get the tracks to this quality.

Now I want to share my music with the rest of the world. Listen to it for free exclusively on bandcamp.

Track Name: Songbird
I have always been a child
Running in the daylight
And it makes me realise
That every day deserves a smile

Cause you never know what you may find
Next time

The stars all start to shine at night
And find their way to your eyes
This pretty world will fill your mind
And it will make you realise

That you never ever have to doubt
Your life

Yes, we're all living this beautiful life
Track Name: Away From Here
Sometimes when we're feeling down
All we need is a good time out
Just about right now

We're getting bullied on the playground
And we're just about to scream it out
Better scream out loud

Cause you are a friend
And we both want to get
Away from here
Track Name: The Angels Fly
Engaged with a smile
Taken down from behind
Roll up to the sky
With some tears in your eyes

The angels fly
Up to the moonlight
A cheap disguise
Keeps you crying inside

But oh, dear friend
I'll let you pick your own end
Just wait, and see
What time is doing with your life

You've been wasting your time
To get up to the moonlight
With no one at your side
To keep you from crying

Still the angels fly
Up to the skyline
And even though you try
You get left behind

But oh, dear friend
I'll help you pick your own end
Just wait and see
Cause someday this is history

But oh, dear friend
I'll make you pick the right end
Put your soul in my hands
And I'll guide you to the moonlight
Track Name: Fool
Fallen down to the ground
Knocked out, and left alone to die
You were once such a loved one
Now, here you are, you're crying out loud

Shall we reach out our hands to you
And give you a second chance
That's the bright side of life
Even though, it must be hard to see right now

You are acting like a fool now
That's the reason you'll be gone now
You'd do well lying under ground
Faced up, for a long, long time

Realise your not the only one
Find a place to call your own
Leave it all behind, and start from scratch
And don't you ever come back again

When you finally accept the fact
Your luck has slowly ran out
You slowly take a breath and realise
You're knocked out, and left alone to die


Hey, you are justing driving us insane
We are not excactly on the same page
Why not try to make our day?
Why not try to help yourself by going away?
Track Name: Kite
Instrumental
Track Name: What I'm Like
In time I wonder why
My feelings are denied
Driven by the shadows
Afraid of the light

I don't know why
But tonight
Yeah, tonight
I'll show you what I'm like

Every word I'll write down
And every sound I'll make
Will lead me to the goal that
I need to create

You don't know why
There's no need to try
It's better on
The other side
Track Name: Her Blue Eyes
Every day you wake up with a smile
And I wonder will you love me now?
I am nothing without your blue eyes
I am nothing without you

By my side
By my side
Your blue eyes
I'll love you 'till I die

And the day I made you smile
Was the best day of my life
And I hope you know why I just think I belong to you

and I think you should decide
Wether I am right
Just know that, when you do, I'll always be in love with you

You just make me realise
That you're the one that keeps me alive
And you always make my heartbeat rise
When I look into those eyes

Eyes
Your blue eyes
I'll love you 'till I die

With all the songs I'll sing for you
I'll make you mine, I hope you do
Remember all the joy we had
Let's be together 'till the end

And every time you'd close your eyes
I suddenly realised
That I would never change a thing
No, I would never change a thing
No, no
Track Name: Strings
I've seen it all go by
Nothing will surprise
And just when I lost the fight
You got in my life

I am feeling like a kite
I just wanna fly
And you never ask me why
You're on my mind

Just fly high

We are looking at the sky
Watch the sun rise
Grab the strings, and let me fly
There's no need to cry

Just fly high

While everything seems to disappear
You're still counting all the tears
And I'd like to take
Your strings

So you can fly far away from here
And you could cast away those fears
Yeah, I'd like to show you the way
Home

I'll take you home
So let me take your strings, and I'll take you
Home
Track Name: You Got It All
When I see your face
I fly up to a higher place
I look into those eyes
And they just make me smile

They make me think of
A lifetime filled with love
And as I recall
I'm think you have it all

The time we spent apart
Yeah, it just breaks my heart
I'd give it all to say
Please don't go away

You answer all my needs
And make the two ends meet
And as I recall
I'm sure we have it all
Track Name: Summer Spirit
Losen up your life, and feel the sun rise
Empty all your mind, and see the bright blue sky

Look into my eyes, and you should realise
We're all living this oh so beautiful life

Don't you try to hide. Feel the hot rays shine
Lose your disguise, and show your pretty smile

The prime time off your life, you're in the spotligt
Don't you wanna fight with lovers at your side?

In the sky I'll fly home
Straight to where I belong
Angels guide me to the light
They tell me I had a beautiful life
Track Name: The Angels Fly Reprise
Engaged with a smile
Taken down from behind
Roll up to the sky
With some tears in your eyes

The angels fly
Up to the moonlight
A cheap disguise
Keeps you crying inside

But oh, dear friend
I'll let you pick your own end
Just wait, and see
What time is doing with your life

You've been wasting your time
To get up to the moonlight
With no one at your side
To keep you from crying

Still the angels fly
Up to the skyline
And even though you try
You get left behind

But oh, dear friend
I'll help you pick your own end
Just wait and see
Cause someday this is history

But oh, dear friend
I'll make you pick the right end
Put your soul in my hands
And I'll guide you to the moonlight
Track Name: Goodbye
The moonlight will shine through the leaves in my eyes
I think of the great moments I shared in my life
And I wonder why I have to say goodbye

The creatures start showing up in the middle of the night
When the clouds block the light I slowly close my eyes
And they wonder why I have to say goodbye
