About the album
“So, two years have gone by writing songs for ‘Leave My Mind Sometimes’, and it feels weird to close this period now that they are finished. But I’m happy and satisfied that I took all that time to write the songs for the album. I’ve started writing the songs in 2018/2019 and recorded most of it in that period as well. I had to learn a lot about mixing, and mixed the album in 2020.”
“Leave My Mind Sometimes” is a diverse album, although all songs have been written on an acoustic nylon string guitar and build from there. Some songs evolved into larger pieces or progressive rock while others remained small and fragile. Therefore most songs can still be played on an acoustic guitar without taking away their essence.
The album is inspired by various types of music like progressive rock, film music, singer-songwriter music, and pop-rock. Even with this abundance of influences, “Leave My Mind Sometimes” has a cohesive sound which takes you on a journey from start to finish.
