My solo piano album “Impressions, Improvisations & Compositions” has finally been released worldwide on Ozella Music !!! Music, video & all the info here!
Happy to tell that my solo piano album “Impressions, Improvisations & Compositions” has now been released in Finland by German label Ozella Music!
The international release was postponed again due to different corona-related issues, and will take place January 8, 2021 !!!
Also my concerts abroad seem very unsure for now… but at least i play a lot in Finland. The tour dates are here, welcome to the shows!
Unfortunately the release tour (April 2 to 9) got coronated and had to be postponed to October 21 to 27. More info to come soon. But the album is out anyway, and it’s fantastic !!!
Enjoying the sun & the seafood in Andalucia until mid-February, writing lots of new music and playing only a few gigs here and there. Feels good!
