Scruffy, Indie folk-rock from Transylvania

Hello, dear friends!

Listen to one of the songs from the soon to be released Indie Folker record, titled “The Crack (Musical)” below:

Indie Folker – In The Dumpster Light | The Crack Musical | Mickey’s Song

I will be releasing this record containing the music I wrote for the “Fisura” play (to be presented on stage here in Cluj, Transylvania on the 14th of March – written by Flavius Lucăcel and directed by Victor Olăhuţ) and I am feeling rather nervous about how people will react to it. It’s an awkward feeling, because I never get that way before a release.

Songs for the play were written in Romanian, but I translated them for the album – I might just have an extra track in the original Romanian, but I haven’t yet decided.

Working on this project was like an obsession for me. I took serious time off from my work to get things done, and I have had music running in my head all day long – no matter what I did.

It is something I never did before. Wow. A musical. Other people singing my songs on stage… and it’s practically theater… where everything has to have it’s place in the play… It is generally a bigger project than a regular album. You have to approach the entire thing from a totally different perspective. It’s training that I very much enjoyed – and still do.

The good thing about being an indie musician, just a singer-songwriter, is that there is not much pressure when something like this happens. I’m not going to waste anyone’s money if I screw up (I’m not saying I ever do, haha) but there’s no big shot producer to make all the fine adjustments either… so you have to write good songs to get away with it… and I always try to write songs that I don’t have to defend after I release them. It’s good practice.

You can still download the song we did with The Wonder Fools, titled “Why?”. There is more Indie Folker & The Wonder Fools music coming in May and June, so you might want to come back for that.

Halloween Song And Video Attempt

Those of you who are connected to my Indie Folker channel on YouTube, already know that my Halloween song video is live. I wrote briefly about this in my last post, and I’m happy I could deliver. I will most likely have more videos up soon, so please subscribe to my Youtube channel to be informed.

Here’s a direct subscribe link, for the lazy ones:

I will most likely have some new video material from the two gigs that I will be doing this week, which I will also upload, plus: we are preparing a new song and video with my band, so I strongly advise you to keep an eye on my Youtube channel.

Here’s that direct subscribe link again, for the really lazy ones:

Indie folk at its best? Well, you tell me! Comment below, comment on the video, wherever you want. Make yourself heard! I am listening…

If you want to give a struggling artist a chance, share my stuff. Share my Halloween vid with your friends on Facebook or show it to your children. There’s a load of stuff you can do, but sharing my videos and spreading the word about me on social platforms is a good enough start. I will upgrade you to super-duper-intendent (just learned that from Simpsons) of PR if you do good on this first assignment!
