I spent the end of July and the beginning of August in Slovakia having my first ever tour of the country. I had an amazing time and was also lucky enough to meet BalconyTV Bratislava to record
a live version of my all-harp harmonic song ‘Sargasso Swells’. Check it out!
A few days ago I met up with Mockingbird Productions to record a music video for my song Introspective (Insanity). The end result was way better than I excpected.
If you enjoy the music I have good new for you: Introspective (Insanity) is part of my debut album ‘In the Valley of Notes’ which contains even more of my original fingerstyle guitar music! You can listen and buy the audio files in lossless and MP3 format (a great way to support!) from: https://salomonjakobsson.bandcamp.com/releases All the information and links necessary to find the music on other sites will also be available here on the website. If you want to order physical copies of the CD, just send me an email through the contact form here on the website. Thanks for the support!
I recently released a preview video of my upcoming debut album on YouTube. The album consists of a collection of acoustic solo fingerstyle guitar songs primarily representing the music I wrote during my teenage years (the only exception being Sargasso Swells that was written at 20). All music was played live on a single steel stringed acoustic guitar without metronome and with as little editing as possible. If you want to support my music, you can pre-order it through the ‘Music’ secion here on this website.
Here is a song I wrote earlier this year that is a bit crazy but at the same time serious. Instead of recording the audio first and then making a play-along video I decided to play and record everything at the same time. What you hear is essentially what it sounds like to hear me play in person.
The genre of this song is a bit difficult to define. I think of it as a combination of music I sometimes enjoy listening to, with a dose of extra fun added to it – video game music, metal music, some tango, horror music and a tiny touch of “reversed” djent.
My debut album, containing 9 original songs, will be released in February. Stay tuned, sign up for the newletter.
