Our life is frittered away by detail… simplify, simplify.
— Henry David Thoreau
I love simplicity. As a songwriter I enjoy working with words, voice and the classical fingerstyle guitar. My motivation is minimalism. Like a painter captures the essence of a landscape in a black and white sketch, I paint the essence of a song with just voice and guitar.
The classical guitar is a warm and expressive instrument. The nylon strings give it a harp-like quality. When played fingerstyle, using the classical techniques, the guitar offers a rich musical tapestry. I’m intrigued by the guitar, exploring its potential as a songwriter’s companion.
Latvia native and New Zealand national, I currently live in Denmark and New Zealand.
Guitar & Vocals Album
I’m working to release a collection of my original songs arranged for just voice and two nylon string guitars. Joining me on this journey is Dmitry Koltakov who is my mentor, co-producer and supporting guitarist.
This work is deliberately made simple. Dmitry and I share a love for the nylon strings and a mission to showcase the beauty and capabilities of the nylon string guitar as a modern accompaniment instrument. I feel that we are creating a work of mindful simplicity.
