A busy summer… and 6 new songs

Soooooo, what happened since begin of July? Well, quite a few things I have to say… sure I quit my job, spend 2 weeks of holidays with my family, sold my apartment in Amsterdam, moved my few essential belongings by car to Copenhagen, sold and gave all the rest (furniture and stuff), moved in with my love in a very central apartment in Copenhagen and started my new job there… but, I also did a lot of co-writing, met new songwriter friends and wrote 6 more songs, including 3 in French. Yeah! :-)

Michaut/Perkins played for the first time in Sweden as part of the Visby festival, on the beautiful island of Gotland (you can see me working on the picture above). During that time, I wrote “Ma vie en noir et blanc” with Maria Blom and “Little Gifts” with Cicci Landèn. At the end of September, we also played a very special and meditative concert (instrumental) at the beautiful Vors Frelsers Kirke.

Participating in the Listening Room International Songwriting Retreat in Copenhagen at the end of August, I had the chance to meet ever more artists and to co-write 4 new songs: “This Is My Time” with Lauren Adams, “Going Down” with Anna-Karin Albihn and Sol Ragner (both of which we played at the Copenhagen Songwriters Festival – see pictures below), “Vol 7463” with Jeffery Straker and “Partager ses envies” with Christer Jonasson!! I can’t wait to work on these songs and play them for you!

 And now, I’m organising 2 secrete concerts in Amsterdam in November – people subscribed to my mailing list will get all the details… 😉 and I’m trying to continue working on my music here in Copenhagen.

Talk to you soon! :-)
