Album: Demo(n)s2018-08-01T11:59:40+00:00

“A song. Where does it come from? When I think the birth of my songs, I can’t really say. Most of them start to reveal themselves a piece by piece. Usually when I kinda “think nothing” with my acoustic guitar – just noodling something and listening. Later on, when a song starts to create some character and melody, it is like a “demon”. Some of them are pretty nasty kind, some nice and smooth. But all of them, in the certain period of the birth process, are constantly echoing in my mind. And I can guarantee, it is not a blessing, man. That is why I started to call my demos to demons.”

DEMO(N)S

These versions will  be changed over time because I can’t listen to my music – I always want to change something. Said that, these demos are not very polished or produced in a modern way – mainly because of the lack of time I prefer to go on and make new music. There is so much to do and so little time, you know.

– Making this album just because I can

THANK YOU GUYS!

It is an honor to work with all of you. Thanks for making these tiny songs alive. Special thanks to SW4 Studios – and my family for letting me do happily this non-profit nonsense 🙂
