MUSIC ..... making music from age of ten. Singing, playing guitar, piano, bass, bit of drums. Composing and writing lyrics. Recording and producing.

Ever since primary school I played in bands. First singing and playing guitar; later on I also played some keys. In 1968 I wrote my first song and I never stopped writing since. Starting with only English lyrics at first. Later on I wrote Dutch lyrics as well. I Never stopped composing/writing since. So you can imagine there are a lot ( I mean: an awful lot!) of songs on the shelves! Later in life I started producing CD's and published some of these songs. (See: Discography) And there is more to come! If you like to read more about my musical development and activities through the years, see pageBiography.

New album : 61 - Etched in Memory

2019-12-24. Just before Christmas the 2019 album came out: "61 - Etched in Memory".

17 pieces of music; 16 songs with lyrics and one instrumental "Music for Movies : Etched in Memory" as one of the three bonus tracks.
This time all the songs are quite recent; written in 2018 and 2019. Some in 2017.
Some songs in cooperation with others. Jacaranda trees' music was written by me, Michael Eschaizuer and Peter Seilberger, with lyrics by me, inspired by a holiday picture Peter has posted. Patience is a song composed together with Octavio Santos. His piano theme inspired me to some words and a melody line and do the arrangements, as of all songs, except We are the ones. That song is fully co-written and composed. Als the arrangement, recording and production was with Mario Walzberg of StudiOjo in Wateringen. One last collaboration was the song Can't explain: lyrics by Nancy Koymans and music/arrangement by me.

The album is opening with a song I wrote about my long deceased (at age 61) father, remembering some fine moments we shared.
The song "Someone else" is really about me - growing older, noticing the outside does not quite correspond with what I feel inside.
Another more or less serious song is "If you start forgetting" about people who suffer from dementia.
Other songs are about life choices we make (or not, or don't dare to), about my grandson, about abused childeren, about the unlimited judging that's going around, or about the nonsense that is breathed into the air by politicians or others and the reactions to that. Of course there are some love songs, like the aforementioned "We are the one" or, another bonus track : "Don't wanna let you go. A duet with Fabienne Dallau (singer in the band NEW PAGE).

All in all "61 - Etched in Memory" is a rather personal album I made.

The artwork again was done together with Vera Walzberg of Feathers Photo.

"61 - Etched in Memory" is available in total or as seperate tracks through iTunes, Amazon, Pandora, Deezer and many more sites.
The physical CD album with a very nice booklet with all lyrics is als available, so just contact me for further handling and shipping.
