'Blue Arrow' has been my experimental journey through 2016, in which I let myself be inspired by all things around me.

This past year started great! I released 'Silence Through the Forest', the first song I made using the Stagelight software and I also became Stagelight 'Artist of the Month' for March. From there on I released a few songs separately as a singles and created a covers EP in June. In October I had around 7 separate single's so I thought it was the right time to bundle them, write some new material and create a full album. So here it is!

On 'Blue Arrow' I let myself be inspired by the progressive rock genre. I've always loved music from Pink Floyd and David Gilmour, but I also started really getting into prog-rock acts like Rush and King Crimson. When I was creating the music for this album I noticed that these bands had a huge impact on the album's musical direction and I'm extremely proud of its result.

I hope you'll enjoy the album as much as I enjoyed making it!
