From my childhood I was fascinated by the guitar and I only managed to pleasantly stroke its magical ropes at the age of majority.
I was initiated in this art by a special lady Petronela Baldovin (Julian‘s mother). It may seem an exaggeration but every time she interpreted I did not dare to breathe. That does not mean I have become a virtuoso like her or her son. No! But that was the moment I started to give free rein to the powers of inspiration. And so the years have passed … I say that it was not in vain. I have collected some compositions that only me and a few loved ones knew about.
But a time comes when you realize that what you do is not just for you, if you have received, you must also give … After trying to stand out from the crowd, but suppressing my own celebrity for other reasons, I said: “the easiest” way is to publish something from what music represents to me. Obviously, this easy way simply became an adventure that began in 2008 with Adrian, the one who opened my appetite which was materialized in 2014 by Daniel who “styled” my music pieces and that is the main “guilty” with publishing my first album.
I especially chose love as the theme because it covers all these 20 years
from different perspectives and ages.
“For Her” is not a project dedicated to the most beloved woman in my life exclusively but especially (the muse has the prerogative, right?). I dedicate it to all of those who love music, poetry, life, those who have the joy of being with each other, of witnessing, to those who are married or are about to do (for instance, Raluca), all in love regardless of age, all who, in some way, were touched by the wonderful feeling of love, whether their loved one is or no longer is present in their lives.
The songs on this album have different stories, some longer, some shorter. Some come from real life, others are purely inspirational and please, believe me, a couple of them –
We hope from the soul you enjoy it and, because gratitude is human, now at the final project I’d love to get thanks to:
