By Hans Ebert It’s all become so formulaic, but how does one politely tell someone who believes they have written something original that it’s derivative? My singer friend Jennifer remarked the other day that she didn’t know whether it was just her, or was “Pop” music all sounding the same- meaning almost a nursery rhyme [...]

By Hans Ebert We have to first switch it all off, take a deep breath, exhale and switch it back on. Switch off that television. Switch off those 24 hour news channels with their non-stop avalanche of politics and lies and deceptions and “world leaders” playing roles. Switch off everything and everyone that has become [...]

By Hans Ebert It takes a lot to laugh, and a train to cry, and, sometimes, it takes someone or everyone to plant a seed for inspiration to grow. These days, inspiration is in short supply around the world where brother no longer trusts brother, and the world’s power brokers are trying to convert this [...]

By Hans Ebert Again, you need to go back to where you came from to gather your bearings and remember what you either might have forgotten or never appreciated at the time. Listening to the back catalogue of Mr Chuck Berry, I only now truly understand what a “backbeat and you can’t lose it” really [...]

By Hans Ebert Their music has been the soundtrack to many of our lives. We grew up with them. Their songs made us smile, sad, think, forgive, forget, fall in love, fall out of love, stay in love. They gave us answers when there were none. They inspired us when we needed to be picked [...]

By Hans Ebert We talk too much. We don’t listen enough. Our priorities are often upside down and back to front. We sleep so much, we lose touch with reality. We have minds, but rarely think. We’re happy to be led. We’re nowhere and everywhere. But think we’re somewhere. Or getting somewhere by doing nothing. [...]

By Hans Ebert He knew when he bought it that this was no ordinary Christmas tree. After all, what made a grown man who had never ever celebrated Christmas nor had even received a Christmas present from his parents- they thought it was a waste of time- decide to buy a Christmas tree in August?

By Hans Ebert Saying 2016 has been a bad year for music- and this year ain’t over yet- is an understatement. So is saying it’s been a bad year for the world of entertainment and the world in general. Whatever’s in the water, it’s not helped that river of life to be smooth sailing. No [...]

By Hans Ebert “And so this is Christmas/And a happy New Year…” That was John Lennon at his most caustic, his most sardonic, and, as always, true to himself, and singing “Merry Xmas (War is over)” in a voice that was a combination of resignation, disappointment and sarcasm. That recording was recorded in October of [...]

By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk So, you’ve recorded some songs. Great. Creative outlets always lead one away from darkness and into some form of shining light. But what do you plan to do with these songs? Even with a record label behind you, what can they do for these songs? Really. And if you’ve managed to [...]
