Playing guitar and writing songs since my 16th. Been in some bands, and play in worship bands during Church services. I play acoustic and electric guitar as well as (some) bass guitar. I started recording music at home using my computer back in 2000. Over the years I've build a small home studio. At the studio I record my own songs and I've also recorded and produced several (demo)albums for others.
For me it's (of course) a way to express myself. But also the best waste of time I know!
As long as some people listen and enjoy it I'm happy
It's impossible to change the way of the world I'm afraid. It would be nice if people were honest, less selfish and would share their wealth more equal.
It would be a song in Dutch, called "Kom van dat dak af" by Peter Koelewijn. It's a fun, rocking, song and I still like how he managed to pull that off.
Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Band, U2, Larry Norman, Lou Reed, Rainbow, Laurence Jones, Samantha Fish, and many, many others.
Everything around me, family, nature, articles I read, my religion and beliefs..
Think about it.
It's cool - I've been doing solo sets, played in a rockband, church worship band. I just like playing my guitar!
I think at this point Drooble is offering good services though of course there are always things that could be improved.
I visit concerts, I make myself available as photographer to some of them, I organise concerts (together with my daughter who is a singer-songwriter and music teacher). I also operate a small home studio where some bands and solo singers have recorded demo's and I'm doing this for free or a small fee if it's a commercial project.
Talent, obviously, and perseverance.
