LATEST NEWS


May 2015: I began my project “One and Apart” back in October last year (wait, it began in my mind long before that ;-)) and it has been a really exciting way to work with writing and recording, month by month and always with a deadline. At this point I am working on instalment number nine, and have just finished creating for May. Follow the project here.
And we have some great shows coming up with Shadowlands, check out the calendar! A couple of them will feature Damon Castillo on bass and Abraham Robles on drums. They play on our album as well and we are extremely proud to have them with us on stage. See you out there!

March - April 2015:
Letting go of winter and celebrating spring.
Not exactly a news update. But it is all there is now... Transformation!

February 2015: The Shadowlands debut album "Shadowlands" is out now, and physical copies can be purchased through our website Shadowlandscalifornia.com. Digital downloads are available everywhere, as well as streaming from various sites. Shadowlands is a newly formed band with Mark Davis and Bob & Wendy Liepman and me. The songs are written and arranged by all of us. You will hear Californian and Scandinavian sounds in a beautiful mix, produced along with Damon Castillo. Do check it out! Thanks for your support!

January 2015: Welcome New Year, there is already a lot of exciting news for Shadowlands. We will be playing Live Oak Music Festival again this summer, a place I cannot wait to revisit!!  KCBX Central Coast Public Radio has been playing Shadowlands tracks almost daily on several of their music shows.
Catch us playing live on Morning Cup for host Neal Losey on Jan 26 at 11:00am. Tune in to 90.1fm or online at kcbx.org 
I am a third into my project oneandapart.com and want to thank all who read, listened and commented so far. I am encouraged and I love the process of writing, recording and publishing month by month.
I am also really inspired by working with Damon Castillo and the musicians around him and I cannot recommend this guy enough if you want solid, stellar music production. I am working towards putting out the songs on vinyl this year and creating a visual side for the project. In search of local filmmakers!

December 2014: "Writing is like driving at night in the fog. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way." ~E.L. Doctorow
I find this to be true and comforting!

November 2014: 
Walking the fields of unknown land
The mystery is softly spoken
Moving the old borders of
The big family heart
We never knew we could cross
The widest ocean
Touching the waters on each shore
One and apart


oneandapart.com

Oktober 2014: One and Apart is the title of my new solo project. Three years ago I moved from Denmark to California. It’s been a journey both outwards and inwards. Needless to say it has brought up many questions and opportunities to explore the idea of home. These thoughts have inspired songs and writings and my plan is to release one song and accompanying essay per month over the next year (October 2014 – September 2015). Here is the first installment. The song was recorded at Damon Castillo's studio here in San Luis Obispo and features Aaron Wolf on Saxophones. oneandapart.com

September 2014: If there is no obvious jumping-off place, sometimes you just have to jump. The first songs are recorded, I have messed around with drawings and watercolor, and written lots and lots of pages. I am thinking about the project day and night. Pretty scared of putting it out there because once the door is opened there is no going back. I am a quarter into the project, and there are still blank pages to be filled and music to be written. But this is exactly what I love about it: The unfinished, the unpredictable and the unknown. Just like the journey that I am writing about. And I find it exiting that you can go with me on that journey, and that I will be creating the songs as we go along. Keep an eye out for the opening door.


August 2014: On the Shadowlands front we’re having a great time bringing songs to life in the studio, getting closer and closer to our debut album being a reality. We have also gotten the exciting news that our song ”Restless Mind” which has been rotating on KCBX.fm this summer is in the running for a New Times Music Award, nominated best song in the open category. Thumbs up and big thanks to New Times and Glen Starkey as well as KCBX for supporting us in the local music scene. I feel appreciated and welcomed!!


Summer 2014: June and July went by so fast and I am still in the middle of an intense writing camp revisiting my first year as a newbie in LA/California (I am still new, believe me, but this first year was particularly eventful and mind challenging and a great source for prose.. I think). The songwriting is in progress, three new songs are in loving care in the studio, and after years of playing on my own and recording by myself it is bliss to be working with other real musicians – alive, inspiring and giving. Damon Castillo is chief engineer on these productions, and is adding his discreet but very fine-tuned touch as well. At the end of September I hope to have a master plan that can guide you to the project home where both writings and music can be found – it will probably be on a separate website. If you wish to be notified, send me an email, thanks : contact@blushmusicrecords.com.


May 2014: Summer is around the corner and I am headed to the studio with Shadowlands to record our debut album. I’m also headed into a new project, which I can’t reveal completely in details yet! The overall idea is: songs accompanied by writings over the span of a year, 12 tracks released one month at a time. I have booked studio sessions, and come to think about it, this is the first time ever, that I have a studio on hand not knowing exactly what I’m going to record!
The desire is to put into music and words what I experienced the first year right after migrating to California from Denmark. I hope you will come along with me on this journey. More to come!



April 2014: Today, April 17, Shadowlands and I have launched our Kickstarter campaign to raise money for our debut album. A year’s hard work – songwriting, performing and promoting – has given results we can only be proud of: Festival bookings and Radio airplay. Our first studio single “Sunlight Support” will premier on KCBX this evening. Tune in at 6:30pm.  Now for the Kickstarter, watch this video and let us tell you about the project:

Shadowlands - Debut Album. Let's make it happen

We are going to make a fantastic, dreamy, folky album – and I would so love you to become a part of it. Every contribution makes a difference, and I want to thank you in advance for your help; for even considering supporting our project!


March 2014: March already?! Wow, time flies ... These first months of the year always tend to absorb me into new ideas, project making, writings, recordings... All the good stuff that drags me out of bed in the morning ;-) Our Shadowlands website is up and running, and from now on all band activities will be updated there: http://shadowlandscalifornia.com/ Take a look at our blog or see fun pictures from the studio! As always you can get more detailed updates about my whereabouts, what, when & whys here.

January 2014: Happy New Year! I'm heading into a busy spring with Shadowlands. We have begun a monthly residency at the Steynberg Gallery in SLO, which gives us the opportunity to perform the new songs that just keep coming! At one of these shows we will have the new EP, which is currently in production by Damon Castillo and the band. There will also be a short companion video by Barry Goyette that features the song ‘Shadowlands’ in addition to
studio footage and interviews.

November 2013: My book "Vægtløs igen" - a collection of photographs and Danish poetry -  is out now! Here is a little film I made about it, which also contains NEW music from a coming album. To order the book please write me at contact@blushmusicrecords.com or order from the web shop under the MUSIC menu.

October 2013: New co-writes emerge on a weekly basis and recording sessions with Shadowlands have begun! We are in the very good hands of studio owner and producer Mr. Damon Castillo. Can't wait for you to hear this stuff. Stay tuned...

September 2013: the collaboration between me, Bob & Wendy Liepman and Mark Davis now has an official name. We are: Shadowlands. See calendar for upcoming shows!

August 2013: Premiering new co-writes with Wendy Liepman and Mark Davis and cello arrangements by Bob Liepman this Saturday (Aug 24) at Steynberg Gallery, SLO. Hope to see you there!!
