Music Friday: Dotan!
A new Music Friday with this time not a walk down memory lane but a singer I mentioned some months back. He surely is a new favourite and might be a little unknown to you all. His music gives off a relaxing vibe with its simple sounding music and poetic lyrics. No fancy riffs on a guitar or over the top drums. I am mentioning him again because I do like him and a new album is coming and on top of that I wanted to introduce you to him.
Dotan is a Dutch singer/songwriter and his music is in my honest opinion one for the world. He started giving small Living room concerts for as many as would fit in a home. He is now starting to get the attention he deserves, with a large concert coming up. Listen and share the love and good times music gives us.
Without wasting to much words I leave you with a poem made from his lyrics of his last year album. And a Video at the end to listen to some of his songs.
Driftin’ away from the shore,
into the open sea
I’ll sleep on the ocean tonight,
with the moon at my feet
I’m sending you an invitation
Come look inside my head
Let’s have a mental vacation
We’ll dream without a bed
How long I sailed without
Passing my homeland
Felt all the emptiness
In the palm of your hands
Oh my love
Why the sky bleeds
The clouds have greyed
Have showed us how
To fall and run at the same time
Hit up the bottom, hearts will melt like ice
As the lights keep falling, makes you feel so small again
As we walk in circles, the blind leading the blight
No way of hiding, our heart is all we got
I’m hungry for you, my love, so come out and rescue me
Under the floorboards
Sleeping stories we outgrew
I’m coming Home now.
Here are two of his songs. the first is the one that got me noticing him the second is a live session in a dressing room of another great song.
