Played guitar a lot when I was younger. Back in 2003 I
“discovered” the possibilities in building a home
studio and started to create songs in 2003
with with help of midi keyboard, guitars and computer software in my
home. I hope you will enjoy my music. Personally, I like a wide range
of music, and in my opinion, the most important thing with a song, is a
groove and that I can feel what the artist really feels in what they
I have many sources of inspiration. Artists like Pink Floyd, Jimi
Hendrix, John Lee Hooker, Mike Oldfield, Alan Parsons, Rolling Stones,
U2, Uno Svenningsson, Ravel, Bjorn Lynne are some of the main ones
Photography is another activity I have spend lot of time doing. My
favourite photo objects are mainly taken from different areas in
nature, which you might notice in the galleries.
do people say about Alderman?
has shown that his initial promise really had weight, the list of
Alderman keepers gets longer as time goes on. So I would be remiss if I
didn't make you aware that Alderman has been a required listen in my
house for at least the last two years. In fact, in my first review of
any of his works back in 2004, I said he was an artist to watch and
he's proved me as omnipotent as I am egotisical. Mind you, when you
work -on an ever changing basis - with some of the finest musicians
Soundclick, you sure better know your stuff and Alderman has learned
that lesson well.
He is also an artist who can literally touch people with his work, I
have seen it
time and again. One of the reasons I gave his Into The Light (March
2005) a Must Have is
not just because the music was good, but because the song said
something, and in so saying touched the essential human in many of his
same can be said of the first real J-n-L/Alderman collab Diamond Dust
(June 2005) also, btw, a Must Have. So what is it then, that makes
so special? Well, I of course can only speak from a personal angle but
I think many people like this artist because he is who he seems to be:
decent human being who is sharing his thoughts and ideas about life and
the universe with us in the only way he knows how - through his music.
