It was just a crazy idea. Call it a dream. Travel to the North of Finland and see the Northern Lights with my own eyes. Trying to catch a natural phenomenon can be a challenge. Long ago I tried to see a full solar eclipse in the North of France. Unfortunately it was cloudy so I only could “feel” the eclipse passing over and see just a glimpse. And indeed history repeats. I saw only a glimpse of the Northern Lights. This was all I got. That doesn’t mean the trip failed. Quite the opposite. It was one of the […]
Ten Years Album presentation in Leiden
Unfortunately the event has to be rescheduled due to illness. The official presentation of the Ten Years album. The even will still take place at the Bethlehem kerk Lammermarkt 57 in Leiden. The Wildeman visuals studio. Expect a live video call with pi.a. from Berlin. Live music and video clips. Drinks, cake and snacks and of course goodies and a chance to sign up for the CD!
Collect all Dream Books!
Recently I started a dream journal and from this came the idea to make a B2fab dream book. Music for dreamers and a dream book seemed a perfect match. But why keep it to just one dream book? Maybe you want your own unique dream book to start journaling. And so came the idea to make a collection and if you want to you can collect them all! I’ll make sure you’ll get a different dream book when you order one or when you pick one up at a live show, you can choose which one. Why a book to […]
Welcome to 2023!
There is much to celebrate. More music (a new album release!), more videos, more listeners. There is also still darkness and coldness. I hope for more light and warmth every day. If you subscribed to the newsletter you just got links to goodies, like the latest B2fab Live Songbook and a hidden video that is only used in the live streams. If you support me through Patreon you will also see the not yet released new song and video clip as played in the last live stream of last year. Welcome to 2023!
A touch of magic
In these are dark and cold times my wish for you is a touch of magic. For everyone that is facing a hard time. Pushed into a corner. A dream and a wish for warmer and better times for all of you. The image is inspired by a Ukranian model that allowed me to use this image to wish you the best of times. Enjoy or stay strong. Be kind and be healthy. Let’s end the dark and find the light again in the new year.
Out now: Love Is Not Time’s Fool feat. Pi.A.
Yes! Another collaboration with Pi.A. from Berlin: Love Is Not Time’s Fool feat. Pi.A. Her creative energy is unimaginable and it is an honor to collaborate. For some this is just a strange line in one of Shakespeare’s sonnets. To me this one sentence says it all. Love can’t be broken by time. A heart can be broken, but even then love goes on.
Out now: Stripped (Pt. 1)
In Stripped I wanted to show more of me again, but this time it is my music in it’s most pure and naked form. All songs on this EP have been recorded in one take, with some imperfections of course. No fancy synths or effects are added. In essence this is how these songs can sound live when played in their stripped form. Also it is about how a relationship can slowly get stripped down to its most essential form. When you are no longer blinded by the beauty and lose the care for each other, what kind of relation […]
B2fab live at Gluren bij de Buren
Yes, it is one of the fun local festivals around the Netherlands, Gluren bij de Buren. This year on the 3rd of July, 2022. Every city has its own edition and B2fab is invited! Three small sets played in a living room or in the garden (depending on the location and the weather). This small poster shows the location and the time schedule.
And suddenly we were in Paris. Me and a very diverse group of people. Refugees from Ukraine. I knew Mariana from social media and video calls, because she was helping me with work on Perfect. She makes music herself and she is a fantastic model. But then the war came and suddenly she was right here in the Netherlands. Passing to Warsaw, Berlin and all other places she never would have expected to visit. She saw Amsterdam, Leiden and other beautiful cities in the Netherlands. And after these experiences the thought was to visit the city of dreams and love, […]
Music for the broken hearted
You might have noticed that there is a new theme at the start of this year: music for the broken hearted. It seemed to be shining through when browsing through all songs. My inspiration for making music is based on real and close stories about love. I also had my heart broken several times, but not all songs are from my own personal experience. Reality is that happy-ever-after love is a fairly simple story. However, love can break down in so many ways that it seems an endless inspiration. I browsed through all of my playlists and found out they […]
