My First “Proper” Album

My first ever “proper” album is out now! It’s called R&D and is the culmination of my second year of researching how music is made and developing my skills. Hence the name. On the other hand, I don’t have a favorite music genre or style neither as a listener nor as an artist. So, it’s a bit r-and-d-om.

Here’s a quick promo video:

It took me a year to realize that I shouldn’t sing. I don’t have the voice or the skills and, since it’s my least favorite part of making music, I’m not too eager to learn. Having said that, there’s a tiny bit of my voice on all of the [vocal] tracks and the last two are actually me, just over-processed beyond recognition.

All tracks are written, produced, mixed, and mastered by me, but sang by way more talented singers. Here’s the lead single Winner // Loser featuring Ashton Louver on the vocals:

Please give it a listen and I would really appreciate it if you’d share it with your friend and followers.

One “central” ink you can share is:

Thank you!
