What am I Listening To?

To me listening to music is as important as creating songs. I have a quite diverse music collection and always look for new and exciting sounds. Growing up in the 90s I got into the alternative music scene and still listen to this music today, also I am a fan of reggae, trance and world music. The following list shows my currently favourite albums, which provide me with inspiration to write my own songs.

Thoughts and Reflections on Musical Influences

Music is forever changing and its easy to be caught in a time warp. I grew up in the 90s and listened to alot of the alternative bands, such as pearl jam and soundgarden. Over the last few years I lost faith in contemporary music and could not really connect with the new music coming through. But I find there’s always a handful of good bands every year and recently bought the new gaslight anthem and hold steady albums and really liked them.

My new song visited is a reflection of my interest in history and ancient civilizations. Most people have heard of atlantis and today is regarded as a myth, there are many theories that say it was a very advanced civilization and was destroyed mysteriously about 11,000 years ago. After this three advanced cultures appeared, sumer, known as the “cradle of civilization”, egypt and the indus valley. The sumerians were the first known people to study the stars and develop the written word.
