HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015

IMG_2078

It’s been 10 years since my eponymous debut. So it’s an anniversary! I will celebrate. I will update old posts with memorabilia. And I will write new posts – heck of a lot more often then in recent years.

I am recording a new studio album – “Without A Shield” – with producer Lars Voldsdal. It will be released this fall. I am doing 52 House Concerts. I am planning tours. The first one goes down in Italy in February. And while I am in Italy I will be recording in a studio just outside Florence – with Italian musicians. Songs that will not be included on “Without A Shield”. THE FLORENCE SESSIONS. Will I be singing in Italian…? Who knows.

And if festivals are keen I am showing up there as well. With or without my extended band. Never been much of a festival type of artist. I prefer the smaller clubs. Or your living room. But if stepping it up a notch, like 10 years ago, I will return to bigger stages. Because I do love to play loud as well. With my electric guitars. So after all… to be honest, with you, true to myself… et cetera, blah, blah, blah… electric.

Eclectic.

And all those living room shows. They will released as #BOOTLEGS. How cool is that… you can actually be a venue for an official live bootleg. RAWNESS> like a carrot unboiled. Setlist decided by audience. Always a cover song or two. Any genre. (!!!)

Well, well, well… it’s a deep well. I am at the moment working on my demos. 100 songs. Down to 15 for “WaS”. And 6 for Italy. Some will be put out as the Demo Pick of the Week on my SoundCloud.

So…

Join me. Here. ‘Cause it’s in here it will happen.

HAVE HAD YEARS UPON YEARS WITH FLAT TIRES
HAVE HAD A HARD TIME STOMACHING THE LIARS
HAVE HAD SHITLOADS OF MONEY GOING DOWN THE DRAIN
LIKE MOST MILLIONAIRES I IGNORED THE RAIN

HAVE HAD 1000 UPON 1000 OF OPPORTUNITIES
HAVE HAD A FEW HUNDRED CASUALTIES
HAVE HAD A BUNCH OF FOLLOWERS WHO WENT AWAY
JUST LIKE THE SUN DOES ON A CLOUDY DAY

I’M WITHOUT A SHIELD
I GET WOUNDED ON ALL BATTLE FIELDS

with love,
-robert
