To make honest and captivating videos of wonderful songs that reach millions

WHY

The discovery, practice and performance of song enriches understanding of emotion, relationships and all human interaction for performer and audience. I share artistic videos of songs and stories that are relevant, beautiful and fascinating in today's modern world. I am an ambassador for contemporary song performance.

YOUTUBE

For good or bad, in today's world, people crave knowledge, facts, funny stories and harrowing tales, often through videos… and YouTube is the BIGGEST Platform. Unlike the usual video channels, Artsongstory does not aim to make 'viral videos' or achieve millions of 'likes.' It uses YouTube as a platform to showcase videos of music it really believes in. Time, thought and effort went into the creation of each one with a focus on genuine and honest human stories. We're fighting the war of viral-video-bullets with large canon ball-bouquets of beautiful sound, colour and stories.
