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!
For those of you who don’t know, Instagram is an app for phones and tablets that lets you share photos as well as 15 second videos (I mainly use it for the latter). The community is constantly growing and it is totally transparent if you allow it to be so. Anyone on the planet who also uses Instagram can therefore, if the right conditions are set, find and interact with your content. You don’t even need the app to see it as you easily can watch in your browser as well.
If you want to see the content I’m uploading I suggest you to visit this website: https://www.instagram.com/salomonjakobsson/ or keep an eye out on the Instagram section to the right side of this website. I tend to upload reguarly, sometimes once everyday so feel free to follow me on Instagram if you use it, but if you don’t and still want to watch the videos, just check the link or this website every now and then to hear the new music.
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.
