Musical intercourse under the stars

Between Thursday and Sunday, I saw around 20 live performances, by around 20 amazing bands and artists. And most of them I am lucky enough to consider my friends.

It kind of underlines my whole reason to be here, or, indeed, my whole reason to be. Live music is, to me, what it is all about. Recording is fun to, and not many things can beat the feeling of creating a new song, but there’s just something about those performances… To be a part of those magical moments, where a song is played in a way it will never ever be played again, and it’s happening right before your eyes and ears. It’s as intimate as sex, and as personal as prayer. To me, anyway. You probably have your own relationship with music, because we all do.

These pictures are from the acoustic night at Moorea’s house on Saturday – an absolute enchanting evening. It all happened in her back garden, under the stars, with candles, blankets, pillows, food and hot chocolate, and lots of people got up and played. Even I did a couple of tunes with Obadiah and Ellie, who to my great joy is as spontaneous as me! It was great to test the new song live, and I am getting more and more excited about creating more magical little moments with the whole band in the time to come. ❤

I want to share some of this amazing music with you guys, so here’s a list of most of the acts who together made my weekend absolutely magical, with links to their music. Sadly, it is hard to recreate the magic on record, but I reckon most of them manages just fine. There is a lot of different genres and styles in there; everything from R&B Diva vocals to the softest acoustic folk and the heavier rock. So I’m sure you’ll find something you like. Enjoy! ❤
