Original Songs

At the end of June 2014 I was moved to write a song. Since then I have done a few more. If you watch, I hope you like them! Just more steps along the road.... latest is first, first is last...

My own recordings are simply done, singing and playing my uke into my webcam, no edits or improvements, nothing additional. I haven't got the technical how-how or equipment for that. So "raw" is the word... very raw...
