My songs are the result of my constant and restless need to play and sing with my acoustic guitar.
I’ve been living my rock’n’roll life as a guitarist and singer in Crucified Barbara, living the dream, living in a bubble.
With the world under my feet I had nothing to call home. My family stopped counting me in. I was never there.
People that I don’t know expected me to give them all. I did.
I almost hit the wall and burned out. Doing what I love made me sick. I made myself sick.
I never rested my body or mind enough to recharge and eventually my battery was empty.
My feelings drained and my personality erased, I had become weak. My world turned upside down.  I had to make changes.
I have gone through my hardest times in life this past year.
But I know I deserve to be happy. I know I can do better. I have so much more to give.  I need time to heal,
I thought I had to rest, but how ever I try,
I – just – can’t – stop –  making – music.

With my acoustic guitars as a great comfort and protection, I’ve been throwing myself into,
going through, and escaping from people, relationships and feelings.
I have now decided that it’s time for me to share my most personal music and lyrics with anyone who cares to listen.
It’s time for me to let my own music out. Far away from steaming hot rock’n’roll and headbanging.
For those who don’t like changes, CB left you 4 albums behind that will always remain, don’t follow me.

But if you’re curious like me to see where this is going, welcome.

Known facts:
There will be no or less distortion.
Influences: Alisson Krauss, Lana Del Rey, Norah Jones, Sia, Lucinda Williams, Bonnie Raitt and more.
Producer of the album is Chips Kiesbye, one of the best persons I’ve ever worked with.
Album recording is planned for early 2017

I’ll be back soon with more news -and music!
