Tell us about your track

of dissonance and peace is a journey through the emotions of hope, longing, loving, suffering, acceptance, and letting go. Each song has a story of its own, while all the songs together also flow into one another in the form of a narrative.

Tell us your inspiration behind this track

Each song is inspired by specific instances in my life. I like to write from personal experiences, that way it is very authentic, while also writing in a way that others can resonate with it. Stylistically i have explored the sounds of folk, pop, acoustic, ambient and jazz music, while creating a soundscape of my own that need not fit into any specific genres.

How long did it take to record the track album EP ?

The entire recording process took about 2-3 months. All the songs were written earlier, but recorded and mixed by me between December 2021 and February 2022.

What is the meaning behind the lyrics?

I write from personal experience, which makes my lyrics very raw, and that’s the way i like it. Most of my lyrics have surface level meaning, what you see is what i mean, however i do like to have some hidden references in there that only if you know the entire backstory of the song you would be able to pick up on. I pay a lot of attention to my lyrics and how i tell my story.

What brings next after this release?

I am currently working on my next EP of 6 songs, set to release later this year itself. A new set of stories I am very excited to share with everyone!
