Easter is around the corner…although it´s been quite frosty the bushes near my home can´t stop sprouting and I always get lost at looking at those green buds coming from a seemingly lifeless branch…the same one that looked grey and pale just a few weeks ago.
I guess that´s me somehow…a couple of weeks ago I was pale and my need for sleep was tremendous and equal to the hours the sun was shining a day…less sun = more sleep.
Now, fortunately, the clouds are bidding their farewell and the sun shows her face more often – YAY! less sleep, more time to craft and be creative.
Okay, okay..I wasn´t hibernating, I was just calmly working away on things.
Like this upcoming event right on Easter Sunday!
April 1! (not the Fool´s Day kind of joke)
I was invited to lead the service musically for the first time
AND will sprinkle it with a couple of my own songs.
Come by, celebrate Easter and let´s have a chai afterwards 🙂
Through Colours (Lea&Frances) + Elli supporting me w/ shaker&cajon

About the “Living Room Concert”:
The rules are quite simple:
It is for free!
There are 15 seats +/- (depending on the venue)
First come, first serve – send me a pm on facebook or mail. > You NEED to register in order to get the venue´s address.
Everyone brings a drink&snack.
Please bring some coins for the artists (the amount gets equally shared) to show some love.
The upcoming concert can turn into an open air concert (weather permitting), so get registered swiftly. There will be a waiting list which potentially turns into the guest list, if the concert goes open-air. By registering you´ll get the venue´s address, so don´t hesitate to shot me a message 🙂
I hope life is well for you.
Mine is just great!
Besides of a tiny cold that keeps me from extended singing I am very excited
to get songs together for my musical guest appearance in the service of
“Luisenkirche” in Berlin – Charlottenburg.
A little bit of background for you:
Most of you know that I always loved to sing but it was in church where I could
play with my talent, where I was put in situations to grow. Many of them were positive
challenges and I can confirm a wise saying that “without challenge there is no growth”.
I grew a lot back then.
I played the drums in the music team and before I went to travel Australia and NZ I lead
people in singing songs to God and His glory.
So I know that part of the stage.
Singing my own songs is somewhat different, they are another route of my heart.
I wrote them, they tell some of my or other people´s stories or
display the thoughts I weighed at one time or another in my life.
Both approaches of music show a huge piece of my heart and to connect them is
just mind-blowing for me. I feel really thankful to have that opportunity.
The title of the service is:
“But if you forget about yourself and look to me, you’ll find both yourself and me.”
(Matt 10:39, MSG)
I believe in this because I´ve experienced it.
I wouldn´t be here, singing in public, if I looked at my own limitations, fears, failures – but when I looked at the promise for my life, a love shown by Jesus that He has the best in mind for me I found life in abundance and the courage to live up to what He has put in my heart to pursue.
I hope you had a great start of this new year and plans to make it beautiful.
I´ve spent my NYE with my family and used the first days of the year to prep for the upcoming months – it´s a huge year ahead for me personally as well as musically-speaking, many seeds are sown and start to grow roots
– I let them grow patiently and share the process with you.
My musical goals for this year consist mainly of busking, busking, busking.
Adding new and original songs to the set list and starting off earlier this year – weather permitting in spring. YAY!
I already had the utmost pleasure to play a gig last weekend, my first booked appearance 2017! – which was heaps of fun. Grabbing those opportunities along the way will be a delight.
There are a few musical picnics to have on my mind as well.
I´ve been taking my camera along on more walks lately so there´s something picturesque coming your way as well 😉
