Hope you like it!
“The Garden of Earthly Delights” PledgeMusic campaign was featured in this week newsletter! I’m honored to be featured alongside the U2!
I am thrilled to tell you that I started working with Margarida Girão, an unbelievably gifted designer, illustrator and visual artist for “The Garden of Earthly Delights” artwork. I got to know about her through a friend and I have to say that I was astonished with her fantastic work. I reached her and she agreed to do the artwork!
We have made some Skype meetings, where we discussed the concept of “The Garden of Earthly Delights”, what it represents, what visual universes it brings to our minds, in order to shape the final artwork. I’m very much looking forward to seeing the final result and can’t wait to share it with you.
In the meantime, if you want to know more about Margarida’s work (and I definitely encourage you to do so), please visit her website: www.margaridagirao.com
I’m thrilled to play tonight (Jan 8th) at the Dead Poet with my dearest friend Eitan Gofman. He is one of my favorite musicians in the world and I’m so privileged to get to play with him some of our favorite standards and eventually some freaky free improvisations! Come by, show starts at 7:30!
I am thrilled to share with you my PledgeMusic project "The Garden of Earthly Delights" for my upcoming album, inspired by an amazing painting by Hieronymus Bosch. I expect the album to be coming out by the beginning of next year and this is the right moment to invite you to be part of this new journey and become part of this project. By visiting my PledgeMusic Store “The Garden of Earthly Delights”, you can pre-order the new album and get it before its official release, as well as related unique items and experiences. By doing so, you will gain automatic access to all kinds of updates and exclusives, such as behind the scenes, photos and videos, alternate takes and songs that did not make it to the album.
I hope you join me on this adventure!
