The Commander In Chiefis creating music, music videos, artwork & books.
Silver Patrons have access to all my regular video updates, which are "compilation videos," including parts of new songs that you'll hear before anyone else. I will release two such videos a month.
Osmium Patrons have access to extended video updates and my monthly live streams. In addition they get a free download, from the upcoming album, before the release date. They also have access to behind the scenes photos and videos of the recording process.
About The Commander In Chief
I was very proud when one of my original songs was played on BBC radio, after hearing my music played on countless independent radios, all over the world, for years. After all, writing music is what I love the most.
By supporting me here and becoming one of my Patrons, you make it possible for me to continue to write music, record it and shoot music videos for the songs that will be on my upcoming albums.
I have written and partially recorded over 40 new songs. All the vocals and acoustic guitars were done live, so everything is very organic, with no auto tune. When I thought I was done with the songs, my manager asked me why I did not have any lead guitars on any of them. I could not really answer that, so we started to play around with the idea of adding lead guitars and loved the result. Some times I get lost in creativity while writing guitar parts and before I know it I have written a new song.
I also wrote a couple of songs on piano, and they were recorded live as well.
In between everything I do when it comes to music, I also write and illustrate children's books.
I will post at least two videos every month, where I will do my best to update and surprise you. Some times I will talk about where I am in the writing or recording process. Other times I will play something from one of the new songs for you and maybe ask for your feedback when it comes to new ideas.
Before FB started to restrict the reach for musicians, I used to have LIVE Q & A sessions quite regularly. I usually answered more than 50 questions in an hour, so it was intense. I will do sessions like that for my Patrons, once a month from now.
In November 2016 a serious parasite infection suddenly changed my life. Due to complications, it would take 16 months before I was back to having my energy and strength back! After being bored out of my mind while slowly recovering, (sleeping up to 15-18 hours a day), I am finally back in business again, writing and recording new songs every day. It feels GREAT to be back!!!
Needless to say, being out of business for that long, in addition to a lot of expenses to private doctors and treatments, has been a tough experience financially.
Over the next weeks my manager and I will continue to work hard to finish 4 albums that will all be called "Berit." We also need to shoot a lot of music videos, so we will be very busy! Which also means, a lot of updates to make for you guys!
I am very excited about the new songs and upcoming albums! The release date for the 1st one has been set for the 22nd of November 2018 and it's called "Berit-Vol.1"
With your kind help and contribution, I will be able to get the rest of the songs and music videos ready for release soon as well! And fingers crossed, there will be a new children's book or two on the way soon too. Right now I'm working on my 2nd illustrated Lyric book that will accompany "Berit-Vol.1!"
I have so many ideas that I want to get down on paper! As an unsigned and independent artist your help is much appreciated!
Thank you so much for all the love and support!!
