Independent Recording Artist
Discover my first steps in writing and producing music. In this post you can listen to some of the first songs I wrote on the guitar. And to some of my first songs that I recorded and arranged with a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) on my computer. And as a bonus you can download the songs you like for free directly from my homepage to your computer, tablet or smartphone as an MP3 so you can have them with you and enjoy them whenever you like.
This page is a work in progress. My basic idea is to share background stories to my songs with you. To let you listen to early stages in the song production process. Show you unreleased videos. Show you alternative record covers that I also created. Every back story will be different. I am very excited to write this for you.
I just finished my first post in this series for "Naked Son" Click on the link to learn more about this song.
I just finished my second post: "Love" Click on the link and find out about the meaning of my song "love".
All my songs are available on iTunes, Bandcamp and on Spotify.
In general I release my songs and albums immediately to Bandcamp when production is finished. Approximately 21 to 30 days after the Bandcamp release my new song or Album is also available on iTunes and Spotify. The reason is quite simple. I myself upload my music to Bandcamp. But to get my Music on iTunes and Spotify I have to upload the song to a distributor (I work with Feiyr.com, Emubands.com and Amuse.io in case you are in need of a digital music distributor) they need up to 21 days to get a song or album online.
Tip: If you follow me on Bandcamp you will be notified automatically about my latest releases. The same is true for Spotify.
You love to read lyrics while listening to a song or you simply love to sing along. On Bandcamp you find all lyrics to my songs. Just hover over the song you like and then click on "Lyrics" right next to it. This also works while the song is already playing 🙂
Some Final Thoughts
Writing and producing songs for you is my greatest joy. Pushing the envelope and finding new sounds to express my songs in a uniquely and different way is my everyday challenge. That is why I sometimes call myself "Sound-Rebel" because so far nearly every song of mine sounds different. But this keeps making music interesting to me, to create something different and maybe even unique with every song of mine that goes out to you. And I hope that this keeps my songs interesting to you.
One final suggestion: If you can, listen to my songs with headphones on. Because, this is how I intended my songs to be listened to.
And, if you found something valuable here feel free to recommend Ysander to your friends and followers and to buy my Albums on Bandcamp.
But now have fun exploring more of my songs and the stories behind them.
