'Rise and shine' is a song that I've written and recorded in 2009. I recorded it at my home with a harddiskrecorder, which I at that time used for recording. In this period I was beginning to feel a bit better since a very long time. After many difficult years, I began to feel more positive and happier, and this can also be heard in this song. It was the first time in years since I wrote a song with such positive lyrics, and it was the first of many that would follow. The song is about the dawning of a 'new day', also metaphorically speaking as in 'a new period', which I could experience as beautiful and giving again, and for which I felt very grateful. It's about 'getting up', about 'rising', both literally and figuratively. It's about my little 'Light', that after all these years could shine again, and about the help, protection and love I ask for to keep my little Light shining and keep getting bigger and bigger to grow.

It has been a long time since I've shared anything about myself and my music, but I'm very happy to announce that I started writing and recording my new album in 2012, and that this album Het Licht der wereld (The Light of the world) is now available!
It is, unlike my earlier music, a very positive album, sung in my native language. For the story behind this album, I refer to my biography.
Below you'll find a compilation of the album, so you can hear how it sounds. I'd like to read your reaction on my Facebook-page.
