Happy New Year!

Hello everybody,

thank you for all the nice comments. It means a lot to me and encourages me to go on.

Last year was a strange year to me. I focused on getting better in singing, making arrangements and working on LogicPro. And I made my first movies for YouTube. I have this strange button in my head which I turned of. Since I did not want to make new songs before learning how to make the ones I already made better.

You must know for me it’s something weird a new song. It’s like it masters my head and sticks in it, like this Christmassong from Wham. Whether you like it or not, once you think of it or hear it, you’re just singing it all day. In October I pressed the button in my head again and was happy and amazed that in a few months 3 new songs popped out. I still can’t believe that this is happening to me.

I am recently working on several songs to be released and have deceided to go more (live) on stage. To me writing music is only fun when there is interaction with other people. I can only achieve this by showing more of myself on stage and on Facebook. To be honest, I find that the hardest part of making music. But I’m just gonna do it.

In December I performed Protect our Freedom live on Stage in Utrecht for an awesome audience! https://youtu.be/VhPO635g6t0 It’s such fun to sing with a band. The people behind volunteered to shout as the crowd who are getting more and more angry.

I think that I am very priviliged to live in freedom and don’t take it for granted. No system is perfect, that also counts for our democracy. In this rapidly changing landscape I think our democracy can only survive when we dare to re-evaluate it to a modern version which is futureproof. Before you ask me, no I don’t have the answer now, but I hope it inspires you to great answers.

Have a beautiful day! Warm greetings,

Afterburn on women’s rights

In my previous blog I wrote about freedom and universal women’s rights with a focus on Holland. I was stunned when I studied the information about this issue on internet. Even I didn’t realize how few rights women (my mother) had before 1956 even though they were entitled to vote and to be elected since […]
