Songs to listen to,
texts to reflect upon,
lights in the dark
in places where it’s needed
at times when it’s needed.
Gradually it’s dawning on me. It’s allowed. It’s possible. I am. So STI.LL was born, along with the desire to record a studio album with professional musicians. A project that I cannot realise on my own.
Because to make this album I need the help of professional musicians. In these difficult times for the cultural sector, I want to be able to compensate the musicians I work with.
The crowdfunding campaign was a huge succes. I am immensely grateful for all the support I received. Financially and also the moral support and encouragement. Many thanks in advance from the bottom of my heart!
The album will be available as of September 2021. 🎶
Even if I was all alone,
even if you couldn’t hear me
or didn’t give a damn,
I would sing.
I would sing a song of praise
for you and your spirit.
I would let every sound
soak in a bath of truth
and kiss it so abundantly
that you would feel its warm embrace
from afar. E-ve-ry Sound.
I would whisper to you like a river,
a free flowing mirror asking you
to fall in love with yourself
all over again,
I would speak to you like a tree,
a force of nature, urging you
to stop destroying and start enjoying
the tender, feeling, fierce and frivolous wonder
of bones, tissue and thoughts that you are.
I would reach out to you like fire,
bright and wild, fearlessly
bringing light to the shadows
you’re so desperately trying to hide.
I would tell you about
the heartbreak of loss,
of empty chairs.
And then I would start laughing
until you get the joke,
and feel as relieved as I do:
you and me, we are not alone.
We are one.
