Scruffy, Indie folk-rock from Transylvania

I have been working on new material roughly for the past year – and as I got to publish my “Silver Screen” album, the record that contains 8 tracks from the feature film “Lie With Me”, I decided to start publishing songs from my upcoming “Nightfix” album as well.

You cand find the first four songs below:

Quick news: we have released a new track, called “Why?” and you can download it on the Indie Folker music page.

Regarding the song: there was some confusion. I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to explain, but here it is: my backup band had to choose a name before we could make the song public. We’ve already had one nailed down, but we’ve changed our minds in the last minute, so we couldn’t make the song public.

We’ve scheduled an emergency meeting at a local cafe last night to discuss the name issue.

BUT they’ve settled upon a name in the end… and so they decided to call themselves “The Wonder Fools”. From now on, this is how they will be known.

We have two more songs in the making with The Wonder Fools – and also a video for one of our recordings – which we will most likely get done by the end of May or June. I will keep you informed regarding how things progress on The Wonder Fool front.

Just take a look at that list of band names! The Wonder Fools wasn’t on there, btw.

It has been a busy time in the Indie Folker universe with the release of “Why?” and the musical I’m working on. I have already mentioned that we have a show planned on the 14th of March when the play will be presented on stage. This is the same date that I decided to publish the record that contains songs written for the play. My first musical album, dear everyone. Cheers!

I have been working hard on making the ‘Monsters In The Christmas Album’ in the last few weeks – as I have plastered this information on every profile and webspace available to me, I’m very sure most of you know this. This and the fact that it will be out on December 1st and it will be a free download. Anyway, it was the most fast-paced recording marathon I’ve ever been involved in. Please read on, I will keep it short.

Initially, I wanted six songs for the record, so the task was to actually write and record one song per week. With only six weeks before the release, I later realized I had to work even faster than anticipated to have time for mastering as well. For those not familiar with the terms associated with music recording, mastering is done AFTER the record is fully recorded and mixed. What this meant is that I had to finish one week in advance to actually have time to master the thing properly. And if all that wasn’t enough, I wanted a video as well, so that bumped me back a few days also.
You can see why I had my hands full, I hope. Seriously, I’ve had nightmares thanks to this. BUT I am proud and glad to say: I’ve finished the last song today, so there is still plenty of time to do the mastering and any corrections required. Phew, right? Now, if only I could make it so all the artwork would be done in time too…

The working titles for the songs at this point (not necessarily in the order they will appear on the record):
1. Christmas Song
2. The Eyes, The Beard, The Nose, The Stomach, The Lungs
3. To Get Away From Everything
4. God, Is Christmas Time A Dream?
5. Taste Like Candy
6. Christmas Is A-lookin’ Good

Come back here on the 1st of December if you want to get some really alternative Christmas songs for free. And tell your family and friends, OK? 🙂

That is right! If you head on over to the music section of the Indie Folker website, you can download my “Monsters In Rome” album for free for a limited amount of time or until the number of downloads reaches 500. That is it! If you like the songs, if you took the time to listen to them, you can now download all of the record for absolutely free until the 1st of November (or until the number of free downloads reaches 500). Hurry up if you like it, and definitely tell your friends!
