“The swift and short February is over today, and I´m almost ready to share some new music with you. When writing music, my main motivation is to create something I like, that is honest and heart felt. I often start with a chord progression, and keep writing and rewriting it, until it sounds right to me. Sometimes I add some parameters to work within, and for these two first songs of my 2013 project I wanted to:
“1. Have a winter kind of feel to them
“2. You should be able to dance to them.
“3. Approval from my number 1 fan. He´s five, and is probably the only person in the world who ranks me higher than Kiss.
“So did I succeed? I think I have number one under control, as I have sampled and used the winter, making it into beats, drums and textures. Number two can maybe be a yes if I am not very particular about it, however it´s definitely not dance club hits. Point three was a Hurrah, so that worked well :)
“Wishing everyone a lovely day and hope to be with you again soon x
