First Solo Album "Facing The Hills"

<p>Almost two years ago I released my second solo EP, and now it&rsquo;s time to think about what to do next. Another EP? A live recording? After playing some songs more than 100 times a year, they have changed. Especially the old ones from &lsquo;Acoustic Guitar&rsquo; my first EP recorded in 2016. So let&rsquo;s take two songs from the first EP (<em>Sunny Happiness</em> and <em>Waiting For You</em>), and my three favourites from my second EP (<em>No More Questions, The Wee Blether, From The Beginning</em>)&nbsp; and I&rsquo;ve got half a CD!&nbsp;</p> <p>The other half is composed of new songs. My way to work has changed a bit as I&rsquo;m not on the road anymore. I settled in Scotland, found my base. I&rsquo;ve got more time to explore and only one beautiful landscape to inspire me.&nbsp;</p> <p>Every new song is directly connected to my new life in Scotland. <em>The Piper&rsquo;s Blues</em> is the result of an improvisation when I was running out of songs playing my first three hours long gig in Glasgow. <em>Torrisdale Bridge</em> came to me during an escape weekend in the Garden House at Torrisdale Castle, sitting on the floor, looking at the fire. After touring and composing in random places, <em>Back Home</em> is just about feeling good coming home, facing Ben Ledi and playing some notes. <em>One Step Forward</em> is special to me. I really decided to explore and push myself out of my comfort zone, looking for new techniques and new sounds. Finally <em>Facing The Hills</em> was born during those months of 2020 where we all had to rethink our lives, finding new ways to enjoy a different life, solving one problem after another.&nbsp; Because when you&rsquo;re stuck, or you think you are, the only way to keep going is to face it and get over it. In other words, Facing The Hills.</p> <p>To thank you for your contribution, you&#39;ll find a great choice of signed CDs, vinyls,&nbsp;guitar lessons and private home gigs!&nbsp;</p>

Allocation of funds

<p>Money collected will be used to pay studio, sound engineer,&nbsp;photography, artwork, and the&nbsp;making of the CDs.&nbsp;</p> <p>Your investment will join some of my own savings to complete the project.&nbsp;</p>
