Vater Unser von DMMK

On the topic of new songs,  here’s a great new setting of the Lord’s Prayer, from G5MeineKirche (aka FeG Rebland), which we recently introduced: Vater Unser (LIVE) from Jonathan Roth on Vimeo. Here’s the chord chart

New #TwentyFourteenProject song: All in all

New #TwentyFourteenProject song: All in all

Here’s a simple song I whipped up in September for my #TwentyFourteenProject based loosely around Colossians 3 (sadly I ran out of time to figure out a bridge for v18 😛 )

#TwentyFourteenProject song from August: Bear Your Name

#TwentyFourteenProject song from August: Bear Your Name

I was in Australia for most of August, but I managed to squeeze in some time on the piano for some songwriting, and I managed to come up with what I think is still really a first draft. I didn’t want to leave a gap in my youtube playlist, so here’s a really quick, one-take demo of the song where it’s at:

Orchestra Flashmob in NĂźrnberg

A friend from NĂźrnberg recently sent me this video of the Staatsphilharmonie (the ‘house’ orchestra at the theater where I used to work) doing a Beethoven flashmob in the Altstadt. It’s good to see some familiar faces, and be reminded of how beautiful NĂźrnberg is…

My 2013/14 season in pictures

My 2013/14 season in pictures

The 2013/14 season finishes officially at the end of this week, but I had my last performance on Tuesday, so I’m effectively on summer break now. I need it. It’s been a really big season (but a great one!). I was in five new productions (and rehearsed a sixth, which I’ll do first in the coming season): Cristiano in Un ballo in maschera (Verdi) – […]

New #TwentyFourteenProject song from June: You have done it all

I’m a week late it posting  my new #TwentyFourteenProject song from June… Last month was hard. It’s half-way through the project, and I really had to push through the fatigue and feeling of being out of ideas. This is what I ended up with:

#TwentyFourteenProject May: You have raised me up

#TwentyFourteenProject May: You have raised me up

It’s time for a new #TwentyFourteenProject song again… In May I wanted to try something a bit different, and get away from the usual four-on-the-floor I gravitate towards. The nice jazzy tone of my Gretsch helped pull out some old Ska influence. The result was a bit of fun, based on Ephesians 2… it’s far from perfect, and I see that I need to spend […]

#TwentyFourteenProject March video: Over all

#TwentyFourteenProject March video: Over all

Here’s the song I wrote for this months’ #TwentyFourteenProject song .. a call to worship of sorts. It’s a bit more rock ‘n’ roll than the past couple… (not that I really have the voice for this style). I still haven’t got the sync issues figured out. In Lightworks, it’s fine. The exported file is sometimes fine, and the youtube clip seems to be fine […]

A new #twentyfourteenproject song from February

One of my aims this year is to develop a better discipline of songwriting, and so I aim to write a new song each month on this year.  I’m calling it the #twentyfourteenproject. (Here is January’s song, in case you missed it) I think I’ll use it as a creative stimulus for working on recording, arranging and video editing skillz too, and hopefully I’ll be […]
