I’m Friedemann Findeisen, a creative weirdo from the middle of nowhere. I love making things, learning things and helping people. If I don’t make, I get restless. If I don’t learn, I feel empty. If I don’t help, I feel ungrateful. Good things have happened when I managed to balance all three. In the past, I’ve been a magician, public speaker, music video director, songwriter, producer, board game designer, author, publisher, YouTuber, music profiler, illustrator, musician and film composer. The best things I've ever made are Holistic Songwriting Academy, my book The Addiction Formula, the YouTube show The Artists Series, my Grunge album Canohead and my board game Cantaloop.

    I think you’ve been missing the boat with Grace VanderWaal. The changes in pop music that you discuss here were presaged in Grace’s EP, Perfectly Imperfect. In Grace’s new album, Just the Beginning, she expands on her innovations. The final track, “Darkness Keeps Chasing Me,” is a model of intensely emotional music in minor modes.
