Two Doors Down – one outlet amongst many

It’s true. I am prolific as a songwriter, thanks to my various outlets.

Margriet and I regularly spend time writing “Crème Brûlée” lyrics. (This is our dutch act, for nursing home audiences – recidents, staff and family members – drawing on Margriet’s experience as a nursing home doctor. We’ve just finished the lyrics for a song called “Rollator Blues”, and we’re now in middle of writing one called “Relatie”). And I have loads of Two Doors Down and ‘Crème Brûlée lyrics waiting for a tune. (I can write lyrics anywhere, but melodies require time in the company of an instrument and a recording device.)

There is more to songwriting, though, than merely writing songs. To perform them live, they need to be arranged. To record an album is a collaborative process that requires a whole other skill set.

The “Send us a friend” project gave me a wonderful opportunity to get valuable Producer experience, and we have a CD to be proud of, that is also helping to raise much-needed funds to enable underprivileged children in the slums of Addis Abeba to go to school.
