The record is mixed, mastered, in the pressing plant and will be here sometime next week. Finally!

I’m behind with almost everything and have a whole lot of catching up to do. The official release will be sometime in January, the crowd-funders will get theirs first and you’ll be able to buy the physical copy at upcoming gigs.

I hope the next year will see me touring as much as possible and I am confident that this record will get me places, all with your help, of course.
The good thing about finishing one record is you have your mind free again for writing songs for another! Here’s one I wrote with my dear friend Jen Hajj and I am sure it’s a keeper.
It was filmed during this year’s Copenhagen Songwriters Festival by mi hermano Carlos Ochoa and my brother Jacob Svendsen on F.o.H. sound.

Y’all be good, I’ll talk to you soon!

“Time has wings, and it flies right by…”

Copenhagen, you’re a beauty. I think I will move here in a while.

Wednesday’s gig at Blagards Apotek was loaded with great songwriters and Friday night’s house-concert was everything you would expect from such an intimate setting

Yesterday I attended a concert at the Copenhagen World Music Festival and saw Djeli Moussa Condé from Guinea.This town is so full of music.

Tomorrow is my last night in town and I will celebrate it with a gig at Mojo Blues Bar. I am going to be in great company, because Andy Fite will be sharing the stage with me. He is a master jazz guitarist and a singer extrordinaire. We wrote a little ditty together last Thursday and will premier it that night. If you are in town, come and join us for a night of extravaganza!
