Secrets of summer is my latest album. Written and composed during the spring and early summer of 2020, at a time when our world faced some of its greatest challenges in a long time.
I set out to compose an album with a positive, even upbeat nuance. An album that exudes the feel of summertime; an album to lift the spirit and warm the heart, I hope you feel the same way too once you've heard listened to the album.
It is apparent to me that my first three albums - Eclipse, Alchemy & Equinox, have their own mood and moving moments written into their DNA and the fabric of their composition.
Secrets of summer is a venture into new pastures. I found myself using new instruments, virtual instruments and arrangements on this album. The harp makes a first appearance in my music as well as acoustic instruments like the handpan.
No doubt you will hear one or two more instruments making their debut.
