Feels Like The First Time

“First Moments” now available from CDBaby! Click HERE.

I’m glad to share my new album with You, it is the english version of my “Esmahetked” album, plus some very special bonus tracks, the songs that mean a lot to me – “Dream Of The Return” by Pat Metheny, “Someone Who Believes In You”, by Carole King, and “Feels Like The First Time”, by Beverly Craven. I’m proud to make music with such great musicians as Kristjan Randalu (piano), Andre Maaker (guitar), Ara Yaralyan (double-bass), Ahto Abner (drums) and Andi Pupato (percussion). Enjoy the blossoming and the music!

As you may have noticed, it’s been quite busy year for me! Not too much blogging recently… but some nice concerts instead. It was a real joy to perform with radiant WAF-choir together with great estonian singers Kaire Vilgats, Liis Lemsalu, Liisi Koikson, Tanel Padar, Ott Lepland and Rolf Roosalu! I did a tribute to my teenage-years hero Whitney Houston with the songs “Hold On, Help Is On The Way” and “I’m Every Woman”.

In November I had a nice concert with my quartet in Austria, Bad Goisern. The concert was recorded by the Austrian Radio ORF1 and was broadcasted in December 23rd. A link to the concert.

You can also check out my latest performance in Estonian Televison, for a christmas charity program, where I sing with my friends Andre Maaker on a guitar and Marti Tärn on a bass.
The song is my latest, called “Sa oled minuga” (“You Are With Me”).
