My debut EP

This EP was originally released on the netlabel EardrumsPop, and you can still find a downloadable version there with 5 tracks. The Bandcamp and Spotify versions includes one more track.

For me, this EP is very dear to my heart. I spent a long time making it, and I also had amazing experiences collaborating with Alison Eales and¬†Richard Holmsen on lead vocals, and a whole bunch of fine indiepop artists from all over the world who took part in the virtual “Butterfly Girls and Boys Choir”.

The “choir” all received some sound files of me singing the choir parts, and they recorded their own versions of it and sent it back. I mixed them all together, and it became the choir part on “You Left Me”.

I would really appreciate it if you added one or some of these songs to your playlists on Spotify. It will help me a lot. Thank you in advance!

You can find the Spotify link below the album cover.

Available Lyrics

You left me, sweet, two legacies, –
A legacy of love
A Heavenly Father would content,
Had He the offer of;

You left me boundaries of pain
Capacious as the sea,
Between eternity and time,
Your consciousness and me.

(A poem by Emily Dickinson)

If you were coming in the fall,
I’d brush the summer by
With half a smile and half a spurn,
As housewives do a fly.

If I could see you in a year,
I’d wind the months in balls,
And put them each in separate drawers,
Until their time befalls.

If only centuries delayed,
I’d count them on my hand,
Subtracting till my fingers dropped
Into Van Diemens land.

If certain, when this life was out,
That yours and mine should be,
I’d toss it yonder like a rind,
And taste eternity.

But now, all ignorant of the length
Of time’s uncertain wing,
It goads me, like the goblin bee,
That will not state its sting.

(By Emily Dickinson)

Album Review

"a very beautiful folk pop project with ethereal atmospheres. A sweetness that makes good."
