Tom Waits once said: ”For a songwriter, you don’t really go to songwriting school; you learn by listening to tunes. And you try to understand them and take them apart and see what they’re made of, and wonder if you can make one, too.” Sometimes writing a song is like solving a crossword puzzle, sometimes it feels like divine inspiration.
Albin is a passionate songwriter, focusing primarily on the lyrics, working with different composers and producers.
Who knows what the future will bring? There are so much going on and anything can happen. Focus right now is the release of an EP in the spring 2017 and the Opening of a new show in the Circubuilding late August 2017
