“Night” is my brand new, sixth album, which I composed, performed, and recorded. The album starts with the composition that goes under your skin, also titled “Night” – quite emotional, touching, and personal. It was inspired by my recent car accident, having my youngest daughter present in the car as well, and by saying goodbye to their our dog. These sad happenings are reflected in a tune that is a mix of introspection, feelings of helplessness, but also hope. YRR will publish it on June 30th, 2023.
Music on my new album was beautifully mastered by Davor Rocco and Eldar Ibrahimovic.
