1 year already

One year ago today, I released my first EP. It was available on Bandcamp at first, but then it became available on iTunes, Amazon and for streaming on Spotify.

That release represented the accomplishment of a dream I’ve had for a very long time. I am really proud of this album, but at the same time, I don’t want things to stop there. I want to push it further. I want to continue making music and most and foremost, have a lot of fun doing it.

That’s why I am currently working on my next album. Even though I have nothing to reveal or to announce at this time, I can tell you that things are underway. I have found a great artist to work with for the cover, and I have many songs I am working on.

Stay connected with me, as I will start revealing more details in the coming months. The best way to stay informed is to join my mailing list, but you can also follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

Take care!

Loop-based songs

With my first EP finally out (download it for free here), I am working on a new project. I just started doing short videos of loop-based songs. They will be uploaded to my Youtube channel. So if you want to be sure to not miss any, you can subscribe to my channel.

So, here’s the first video of that series. Others should be posted soon. I hope you enjoy them.

It’s here…

!8 Seconds - When Fog Dissipates - coverIt’s finally here. You can download my first EP, called When Fog Dissipates on my website.

It’s a dream I’ve had for many years, and it is not becoming true.

There are some peoples I’d like to sincerely thanks for their important contribution in making this album possible.

First and foremost, I’d like to thank my fantastic wife. Not only for her support, but also for believing in me and understanding how much this all meant to me. I love you so much.

Then, I could not release this album without saying thank you to Graham Cochrane and Joe Gilder. Even though we never met (and they don’t even know me), through their blog they had so much influence on me that I could say that I would not be releasing this album today if it was not for them. Keep helping the home studio enthusiasts as you do guys. You rock!

I’d also like to thank Andi Picker at The Dustbowl Audio for taking care of the mastering and doing an awesome job at it.

The beautiful picture used for the cover is from Gino Caron. Thanks a lot Gino and continue taking such amazing shots of our beautiful part of the world.

Thank you to Jim Cornall for the design of the cover. Thank you Jim for your great work and you patience.

Last but not least, thanks to all of you who supported me from the start. I hope you’ll enjoy this album, and the others to come.

So now, go ahead and download it. It’s name-your-price, so you’re more than welcome to just enter 0$ and get it for free. I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please tell your friends.

October 4th

It’s now official. My first EP, When Fog Dissipates, will be released in less than a month, on October 4th.

It will be available for free (Name Your Price) on my site.

However, if you’d like to hear a snippet of it, make sure you connect with me on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Maybe you’ll have some chances to hear something.

In the meantime, here’s the cover.

The cover was designed by Jim Cornall using a picture from Gino Caron, photographer. Thanks a lot to you both for your help and support.

New collaboration track

As I type these words, we just published a new song. It’s a collaboration between Age Of Solace, mandala eyes and myself. The track is available for download for free (pay-what-you-want), so do not hesitate to download it and listen to it. I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Collaboration work

I recently participated in a really interesting training program given by Andy Othling (andyothling.com). It was called The Music Passage, and it was about promoting your music for independent musicians.

I met a lot of very talented musicians during this program, and if you follow me on Twitter, you probably already heard about some of them.  I am currently working with 2 of them, Alex of Mandala Eyes and Jamie of Age of Solace, on a song.

You can listen to a short preview of it here, and the finished song should be available soon.

I hope you like it, and if you do, make sure you check out Alex (http://mandalaeyes.com/) and Jamie (http://www.youtube.com/user/AgeOfSolace?feature=watch).
