July 17, 2021 - Born on a Train cover on YouTube!

You can now go listen to my new cover of Born on a Train (by The Magnetic Fields) on YouTube!
For this cover, I only recorded guitars and vocals, and programmed the rest in FL Studio.

Also, I would like to send out a big thanks to Gubos for helping me tuning the vocals, and Julie for lending me her acoustic guitar ♡

Listen to my Born on a Train cover.

July 02, 2021 - New original song "Smell of Rain" on YouTube

As the title says, the demo-song it's called Smell of Rain and it was made around December 2019–January 2021.

I really don't known what to say about this song, so I won't say anything.

Enjoy!


June 30, 2021 - "Born on a Train" by The Magnetic Fields [demo-cover]

Since these weeks I had a little more free time, I decided to start recording a cover of Born on a Train by The Magnetic Fields, and I thought about sharing a small preview for you, my only reader ♡

I'm still working on the drums, guitars and vocals, (and hopefully it will be finished by next week), but you can listen to a strip-down demo here:


June 26, 2021 - New song "The Way" + video!

The Baithouse Music YouTube channel (which I'm part of) have uploaded my latest demo-song The Way with a nice video edited by me (footage courtesy of A/V Geeks | Archive.org).

I wrote and recorded the song in July 2019, but about a week ago I pretty much re-recorded everything (except some backing vocals) and wrote little arrangements for the synths, plus I improved the mix a bit.

Also, I'm not really a singer, so in most of my demo-songs you will hear my voice going flat on various parts, but we’re just gonna ignore that ^^

You can check the new video here.


June 25, 2021 - New demo-track "Winter" on YouTube!

This was originally a jam that I recorded back in 2019 on my Fostex 4-track. If I remember correctly, I was listening to a lot of The Lonesome Crowded West by Modest Mouse. I was so inspired by Isaac's guitar playing that I wanted to record a guitar riff with lots of natural harmonics on it; so I recorded this little jam, and the next day (June 21, 2019) I re-recorded it on my computer, along with the drums and bass, and added the second part of the song (which I noticed that is a rip-off of Explosions in the Sky's Your Hand in Mine).

June 24, 2021 - I just created my first Bandcamp profile!

In case you want to support my music, you can buy my first EP from Bandcamp. Includes a bonus track, and the handwritten lyrics of each song in PDF format.

For now only my first EP is uploaded, but I hope soon to be able to upload more of my songs (if I finally decide to finish them). If you want to listen to more of my songs (mainly demos) you can do it on my YouTube channel.
