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!

Hear My New Music!

Standard

I’ve started a Patreon and have just published a video where Patrons get a preview of what I’m working on!

I’m pretty excited about my latest artistic pursuit and hope that my fans and followers will check it out and spread the word.

The best way that you can support me as an artist is by signing up to my Patreon page (Right Here)ย and spread the word; also make sure that you check out all of my previous releases if you haven’t already.

My 1st blog book is also in the works; it will include selected entries from my 1st two years of blogging on this site; it will be released as an eBook.

Thanks a lot for the support!

My Album Is Still Charting after over 2 weeks on the Amazon charts! :) Thanks!

Standard

On the 28th of January I was overjoyed when I saw that my classical album had hit the bestseller list once again, both in classical romantic and easy listening! It peaked on #2 from what I could see, but since the charts are updated every hour, it can easily be missed if it goes to #1, unless you stalk your own releases.

My album has continuously been charting since its release in December 2014, which makes me extremely happy! Usually a release will experience sales when you as an artist receive press exposure, play gigs and release new videos. So the fact that the album keeps on charting without any press buzz at the moment, gigs (I’ve been ill for a year) or new videos is crazy! In 2016 I also experienced that my music video for Paganini Cap. 24, went viral for the 2nd time, after a guitar site in Mexico posted it on their Facebook.

Whenever people come across my work and it is shared it is obvious that there is great interest for it! I’m looking forward to release new music. Right now I’m happy to be recording again! Thanks a lot to those who pay for my work and let other people know about what I do! As an independent artist I really appreciate all support! If you want to read about my Major Label experience in 2016 (the secret project) + my health (why I’ve been “gone”) you can read about that on my website right here:ย Commandermusic

Thanks again to those who support what I do! Make sure that you check out my Amazon bestseller books and previous releases on my website. Everything can be found there. โค

Goodbye August, Hello September!

Standard

After months of secrecy I just wrapped up a mystery project that I’ve been totally consumed by these last months! Fingers crossed that it won’t remain eternally secret as I’ve really enjoyed it. By far the coolest thing I’ve done I think, at least in my opinion ๐Ÿ˜‰

I will now enjoy some well-deserved days off ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are some behind the scenes pic, from the month that was!

I LOVE to play guitar.

Standard

Yes it might not come as a mega-surprise, but seriously, I really love what I do. Profoundly.

Just finished my playing routine, going thru all the tracks from my classical album and also some of my riffs. All of those riffs feel easy to play in comparison to the violin virtuoso material, funny enough.

Once upon a time these songs represented my technical limit, which I now find a bit funny. I mean, technicality aside I still like those melodies of mine, but it is certainly not challenging to play those songs anymore.

I’ve now embarked on a brand new virtuoso piece, I just couldn’t help it.

I won’t tell anyone what sort of ludicrous project I’ve embarked on now, but I can reveal that it is again quite unique.

The feeling of your fingers flying over the fretboard, knowing exactly where they are supposed to land next, always one step ahead, ย combined with the memory used to its fullest force, is literally priceless.

If you cannot find joy in the art of just playing and mastering your instrument you are seriously doing something wrong.

I know. That I Love.

That I LOVE. What I do.

Let me repeat.

I adore what I do.
