Alright too many post pictures, videos, and longish posts lately that it’s looking a bit like VirgoVault V2. Need to get this blog back to ‘very short posts’. Hope you’re enjoying my posts!
Thomas Dybdahl is another artist whose work, tone, and voice resonates with me on deep levels and for good reason.
A special story about my meeting with Thomas. My friend Amy, in the UK, had been introducing me to Norwegian, and Dutch musicians and bands for a couple of years and one of these artists was Thomas Dybdahl. I played the video Amy suggested and searched out another but then didn’t bother much more with it.
Then a year or so later, as I was building my Google+ Music page, I was pouring over some loved music from my past and Thomas’ music popped up. This time I ended up listening to more of his music.
Around that time, I found his Facebook page and saw that he had a live show on Livestream that I was able to watch where he answered viewer’s questions (mine included).
Shortly after that, there was a contest to win two tickets to his show supporting Tori Amos at Massey Hall. I won, with the support of Amy rooting for me!!
Since then, I have not tired of his music so he’s become a favorite but David Bowie is still #1. Oddly, they’re both cardinal signs (David, a Capricorn. Thomas, an Aries).
I probably won’t spend as much time reading Thomas (especially since his time of birth is unknown) but I’ll scratch the surface a bit in a few posts, mainly focusing on his art and what drives it.
