This CD-release is long overdue; however – now it’s here and finally a reality! These 33 songs represent only a portion of nearly 200 songs written over the last 20 years, and all recorded at various home studios.
In reality, my song writing has been done in «periods»; with extreme activity for many years, then suddenly no new songs for a while.
As I re-started my song writing, I realized that I had a profound wish to release some of the material from both the 90s and 00s.
My songs are, as the song writing cliché goes, like «children» to me. They all represent deep emotions of various kinds, and as such they are pieces of me and the people I’ve met so far in my life.
CD1 consists of tracks from the 00s (with a couple of exceptions), while CD2 features songs from the 90s. I’ve chosen songs that seem to belong together on a compilation-album.
To quote myself, from a yet unreleased song: «Wish To Give You Silence In These Words».
