Fresh Start Monday, Dec. 14th – Last week before the Christmas break; and it's a busy one! 

Hey all you beautiful people!

I hope you have a wonderful start to this week! We're taking a break and spending Christmas and the start of the new year with our families, so the next Fresh Start Mondays blog will be out on January 11th. So I'll gather everything between now and then in a neat little package for you!

Fresh Start Monday, Dec. 7th 2020 – Oops... I guess that happened! 

Okay... So let me just start off this Monday by admitting how completely I was able to outfox myself: Last Monday morning I was ABSOLUTELY NOT planning to be announcing a new album on Friday and even less so streaming the first songwriting session live on Youtube! What the hell, Jon?!? 

On Tuesday I played the hitherto last "Songs on Tuesday" Facebook livestream. Last, because Facebook apparently decided to not share me going live with our page followers (almost) at all. And then I realized I'd had enough…

I'm making a new album inspired by Spotify CEO Daniel Ek – here's the weird story behind it 

Okay. So, a few weeks ago I noticed a headline on ”Is Spotify’s Discovery Mode just asking acts to work for ’exposure’?” (Highly recommended read, by the way!) Now obviously for a small indie band like ours Discovery Mode immediately sounded intriguing. Maybe this was a great opportunity to get our music in front of new people? I don’t mind putting in the work as long as there’s a reward I’m happy with at the end of it, right? Instead, after reading the article I just lost it. I’d completely had…

Fresh Start Monday, Nov. 30th 2020 – Back live on Tuesday, Rude Questions on Friday and well, just the good news you needed! 

Happy first of the week and last of the month to you!

I hope this week treats you to the kind of rockstar start that you deserve! But if not, let us non-rockstars see if we can't doll your week up a little!

First off, I'm back with my "Songs on Tuesday" Facebook livestream again tomorrow. The Late Edition starts at 18.00 Finnish time but I haven't decided on a theme quite yet although there's several I'm considering (and have been pitched to!) at the moment. Think I'll just go with my gut on the day and…

Fresh Start Monday, Nov. 23th 2020 – New lyric video, Special Session on Fisherman Friday and this week's good news! 

Hey everyone,

and apologies for not being here for your morning coffee hour! I guess you know those days as well – and those days somehow tend to be Mondays, don't they – when it starts of all wrong and you can throw your timetable out the window almost as soon as you've managed to get out of bed? The world just doesn't wait and neither does it much care, at times, right?

Anyway, I still obviously hope you've had a swimming start to your day and this last week of November! Maybe a bit of music will cheer…
