Brand New Single Coming Soon

I'll soon be ready to let my first single finally leave the Anderssen/Johannesen nest and take flight into the world of fellow music lovers. Stay tuned!

December Calling

On this first day in December it feels like a good time to share this song I wrote two years ago with co-writer Niclas Johannesen and producer Óli Poulsen. Óli also filmed the video a very cold night in Copenhagen. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzpHptRGy1Q

Poem For October

And as the rain pelts down
Hard against my window
I remember the warmest summer
I can taste the mango
And feel the grains of sand between my toes
I can hear the seagulls chiming in the salt air
Hungry for a hotdog
Or a hot dog
I can smell sunscreen and sweat and sea
I have no agenda
No fear of wind
No reason to go home
It's just you and me and the month of July
And I know
Whenever the rain pelts down
Hard against my window
I can go there
Go back to that summer
And remember
How good it was
