Finally.

Standard

The loose threads will not be loose for much longer.

I look forward to releasing my 3rd body of work and I think that this will finally give people a full impression of who I am and what I can do as an artist!

I cannot wait! ๐Ÿ™‚ I feel very encouraged by the fantastic feedback that I’ve received so far! Now the challenge is to get people to hear about it & spread the word!

For those who’ve followed me since 2008 you might remember my very 1st music video & version of “Battle For The Mind,” in addition to my 1st version of “If The Dead Ones Could Talk.”

The sound and style changed drastically from those two 1st demos to my first Demo EP “State of The Union” in 2009, and my rock’n’roll changed and evolved further with my
“Battle For The Mind” Demo released in 2010.

There’s been a constant musical evolution first within heavy metal and then with the classical music, while there were other musical directions & ideas brewing in the background!

If anyone had told me back in 2005 that I would have ended up shredding violin virtuoso pieces on a 7 string guitar, while learning how to sing “Queen Of The Night,” in addition to changing my genres and alternating between songwriting styles, I would never have believed them! Not at all! Yet here I am.

I cannot believe how artistically and technically adventurous the choice of music turned out to be!

If I could turn back time I would still have pursued music, because I knew back then that if I had not, then I would have been haunted for the rest of my life by “what if?”

I had no idea that I had it in me to be a virtuoso. I started late. I was just going to write songs and be an artistic spirit.

Yet now I find myself here:

Who knows what the future might hold in store for me, but I hope that this is just the beginning. I have too much unreleased music and ideas that I want to put out there!

Thanks a lot to those of you who’ve supported my work! Please keep on doing it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you!

Final Flier Summer Evening of Song (Berit Hagan) A4

A 30 min Guitar Lesson Video + More New Music!

Standard

Today I released a 30 min guitar lesson video for those who pay 10$ and up on my Patreon account! I also released my 2nd update for this month; so if you want to hear more music from my 3rd album then make sure that you sign up here:ย My Patreon!

Yesterday before I went to bed I saw that myย classical albumย had jumped up on the Amazon Bestseller chart after falling down. On the 22nd it was down on 44, yesterday it was up on 29, and now it had gone up to 27! That is really cool since albums usually don’t chart that long for independent artists! Earlier this year it was hanging in there for over 2 weeks on the chart, and without any new videos or anything! I clearly have to release more classical recordings! But first I’m going to put out a whole bunch of original material that I feel very strongly about! ๐Ÿ˜› Make sure that you check out my Rock’n’Roll music as well ๐Ÿ˜›

Thanks again to all these Americans who buy my music!!! The U.S.A. have always been my nr.1 country when it comes to fans, followers & buyers! โค Thanks a million & God Bless!!!!!

NEW VIDEO!

Standard

Today my manager and I decided to share some behind the scenes LIVE footage with my fans & followers. This footage is from “the secret project” that I was being all mysterious about back in 2016. I was really excited to be doing this, working with some cool people from a serious label; but sadly fell ill with a vicious parasite infection. In addition I also got a shoulder injury in February 2017; so it felt really refreshing to find this video footage and see for myself the form that I was in! It has taken me over a year to finally be well again ๐Ÿ˜ฎ It was a major breakthrough when I finally had full movement in my arm, so I’m super stoked to finally be recording and playing again!

You can hear a preview of what I’m currently working on if you sign up to my Patreon page; below you can see the behind the scenes footage from my 3rd session with classical crossover! Thanks a lot to those of you who support what I do!

USA April 2015 (part 2)

It’s 3.45 and I’m awake again! So what happened after my exhilarating flight to New York with the Captain that didn’t know what was going on? Well, we landed safely and I was picked up by Annika from DR Strings ๐Ÿ˜Š I got a really cool factory tour and got some very cool new neon strings as well. So now I’ve tested and compared the coated and uncoated DR Strings and they sound and feel exactly the same. Here is a video and some pics:

A big thanks to author Tom Casey that lent me his awesome apartment next to Central Park! It looks like the flat belongs to Indiana Jones ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€ Casey seems to be quite the adventurer, which is awesome! Hopefully I can have an equally awesome looking lair in the future, filled with “memories” from far and distant places! I personally wish I could be an explorer! Anyway, here are some pics, thanks a lot to Annika and her husband for the dinner and thanks again to my host in Connecticut!
