Warning; Before you read this I would just like to point out that this blog was written in fits of hysterical laughter. I find this very funny 20 or so years later. It wasn’t really the end. Just the beginning… and I am just about to release my fourth studio album so all is well...
One of the reasons Copyright was introduced was so that creative people could exploit their skills to make a viable living. It was the main vehicle for the development of creative industries.
I reached out and BOOM! Amazing what happens when you ask for some support to make an album. Thank you so much.
A few weeks ago I started on a journey to raise some funds so I could record my fourth studio album.
Today, 17th December 2016, I reached the target and am so grateful to the many people who helped me reach this goal. Those who donated directly to the campaign, spread the word on social media or encouraged me along the way by ticking ‘like’ on my posts or leaving some kind words.
THANK YOU 64% already!! . I do believe this cockamamie idea to do a Boosted Campaign is going to work. Hoorah!
I found this photo recently and it reminded me of a time when I made a decision to conform to the expectation of society, not so much because it was the right thing to do but more for preservation.... Click Through For My Boosted Campaign,
Hi there, I'm Jan Hellriegel. I've been making music for...a while now...and am currently working on a 4th studio album.
...I am just transported – I have no idea what is going on around me and I am at peace. Until someone comes into the lounge, right in the middle of a pivotal moment and says “Hey Mum, can you make me a sandwich?”.
“Geez, Beethoven didn’t have to put up with this s^&*”, I think to myself....

Right about the time I released “The Way I Feel” from the It’s My Sin Album, I was asked to be the support act for The Cure.
It would be by far the biggest audience I had ever played to date, and it was quite nerve wracking during the lead up to this show.
One of the most important things I have learned over the years is to commit to a project. Even if it takes you a lot longer than you anticipated – start. And don’t stop till you finish.
