About Schmidt: Old days before this very moment

OLD DAYS BEFORE THIS VERY MOMENT


[...] In 1998 Schmidt played his first band concert with mostly original music and in 2004 he played his first as a solo performer [...]


In 2009

In 2009 Tim Schmidt left for the German City of Leipzig and released a "debut" album on indie label Analogsoul. The music had been recorded in Sweden. Maja Landin and her clarinet played a crucial role in many of the recordings and performances at the time (2007-2009).


Earlier that same year awarded Swedish indie music award "Manifestgalans pris till årets osignade akt på MySpace 2008". Second album was released in 2011 by Thanks for the Postcard [the brainchild of Germany based Canadian songwriter and indie artist from Montreal Nicolai Huart]. Schmidt resided in Copenhagen until 2011.


Boring on Social Medias - MySpace*

Schmidt was willingly active on the Social media platforms with his music since 2006 and fond of it until the unfortunate assassination and death of MySpace.com, which was happening not too long after Schmidt's prize.


*[which is now a long, long time ago, relatively speaking].


Thin air and blank sheets**

Schmidt's sometime "loose" recording processes is the making of a something out if thin air (as in the old tune Thin air and blank sheets. I wonder if anyone still remembers this early guitar/vocals/harmonica tune that was released on an album named... (- hmm, could it be on Bird Flew By? 2006? 2007?)
