Time For A Break: First Episode!

Life of a musician in the studio is a lot of blood, sweat and tears...well..mostly sweat, actually. Anyway, every now and then, I need a break. And you, sitting behind your desk, are entitled to one, too. (Look it up, it's in your Collective Labour Agreement).


I only have to get up and take a look out of the windows of my tropical recording studio to get some relaxation. In Time For A Break you -too- can see what's going on in and outside my solar studio in the Caribbean. Check out the very first episode called Iguana.

New Series in the making: Time For A Break

I am working on a new youtube series called Time For A Break. When I am busy in my solar studio and in need of a break, I only have to look outside the windows of the Green Machine to find some entertainment.

The first episode 'Iguana' will soon officially be released, so that you can check out the things that happen in and around a solar studio in the Caribbean as well!
