I have played the piano since I was six years old. In 1998 I graduated from The Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, and have subsequently had a long carrier, where I have been part of bands, symphony orchestras, choirs, musicals and theatre concerts.
As a musician, I wanted to try everything and keep all my options open. However, my desire to span many genres, personal insecurities and a calendar that was quite packed, caused me, over the years, to lose the desire to play. In 2013, I hit rock bottom, and everything felt grey and indifferent. I started going into therapy and initiated a process to regain my motivation, enjoyment and vitality both for life and music.
The result of this search is the album “Melancholy”. In different ways, it reflects some of my more “difficult” sides. As a human, I am inclined to be melancholy and depressed, and previously this had a strong presence. Through the compositions, I found that the music could reflect the same side of me, but in a more conciliatory and beautiful way.
The album “Melancholy” is on every major streaming services. If you want to order a Cd, digital download or sheet music, go to my website:
