Besides being a philosopher, I am also a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. I have been recording my own songs on a simple 8-track home studio device since I was 14. Some of the more recent materials are available on Spotify and iTunes (my first name ”Corijn” is my artist name). I write and record all songs myself, using the following instruments (roughly in order of prominence):
Banjo 5-string (clawhammer)
Banjo 4-string (Irish)
bongo’s & other Latin percussion instruments
Lyrics to the published songs can be found below.
The album ”The Shepherd” consists of songs written between 2007/2011 (most of them when I was 17-19). I re-recorded the first half of this album in 2019, and the second half in 2017. These songs are composed and mixed to sound like the originals (which were of poorer quality), and lyrics have not been changed.
The other two albums (”Come with Alfa” and ”Track of Liberation”) contain songs both written and recorded in the period indicated.
You can listen to my published songs on Spotify or iTunes (”Corijn”).
