“When you become aware of silence, immediately there is that state of inner still alertness. You are present. You have stepped out of thousands of years of collective human conditioning.”
Out July 26th on all platforms.
Skywalking is my debut album recorded in my hometown S'Arracó in Mallorca,Spain at Rush Music Studio. The album contains 13 tracks ranging from acoustic ballads to rock and blues tunes. It was produced by Marcos Lopez Reolid at MLR Studio in Barcelona and Ryan Shanahan who works with ZEDD and many other major artists in LA.
Instrumentally speaking it is a classic: bass, drums, guitar and voice set up. The drums were provided Patrick Shanahan, who previously played with Ike & Tina Turner and has shared stages with Jimi Hendrix and many music legends through the generations. The bass is partly me and partly Jan Kobrzinowski. All guitar and vocals were performed by me.
The inspiration behind these songs comes from rising out of the darkness of depression and slowly finding myself. A consciousness expanding experience fueled songs like "Light fights dark", "Trip into a trip" or "Hells Fire" and my slow and steady recovery and self discovery has lead to songs like "Be me" and "Lighthouse keeper (God)". Other songs like "Father" take a critical retrospective look at the world and question the path taken by humanity. Having found the light from the dark has lead me to find love which was the inspiration for the love songs "Anything" and "Don't want to fall". Overall there is quite a broad range of styles, but the global idea the album is based on is the never ending internal and external battle between good and bad, white and black, or to put it plainly, duality, but most importantly what is beyond it.
Soon available on Itunes, Spotify, Bandcamp.
