I have moved

I have been planning this move for over a year now, but finally, with the immense help of my fiancé, Łukasz, I introduce you to the new harpress’s website.

You might see that not a lot changed for now, as most of the work was switching the engine of the page and the server, but I plan to add some new content in upcoming weeks.

Please let me know if you encounter any problems when browsing the page.

I hope now it’s more browsing-friendly. It should also work better on mobile devices.

I know that it’s a lot more fun to edit and add content, so expect more updates 🙂

Firefly in the darkness

Midwinter is near, the nights are getting longer and the days darker. I think it’s time to bring it a new spark, a little light that might make your life warmer and help you brighten up other people’s lives.

You might have stumbled upon my news from August and September, that I was recording some music for a secret project, and now I can finally shed some light on the mystery.

As a Firefly fan and a member of Browncoats of Poland I proudly present a beautiful little story, that not only helps fund the KidsNeedToRead charity, but will also bring warmth and tears of joy to all the people who read it.

Jakub Ćwiek wrote a fairy tale. Magdalena Babińska drew the wonderful artwork. I read the story and looked at the pictures and was moved, and even a bit weepy. Anyway, when the possibility of adding my two strings to the project appeared I just couldn’t stop the inspiration. 😉 I wrote a march which is the background music for the story’s website and the ballad ‘Fly Up‘ (and the Polish version ‘Leć w Górę’) .

So, how does it work? Go to http://fireflyinthedarkness.com/ where you will find the whole story in e-book format. You can download it for free, and if you like it – donate a some money to charity with an annotation ‘From Fireflies of the Valley’. When browsing the web page be sure to click the bonuses menu – you will find my music and other juicy goodies.

That’s not all. You can also order your very own printed hard-cover book (bilingual, Polish and English), printed on a glossy paper, and with a CD with ‘Fly up’ and ‘W góre’ tunes. You can order it straight away and, with a spark of luck you might have a nice present for midwinter (or just the start of new year) for all the children (both big and small). All the profits from sales of the printed version go to KidsNeedToRead charity, that promotes reading among children.

Get to know the Fireflies!

A harpress’s new year

I came back from Scoil na gCláirseach.

To tell you the truth it’s a bit like New Year. I make resolutions about things I want to work on before next year. I come back from Ireland with a fresh batch of power and desire to study, and a green binder full of juicy new information.

Now I have to focus on all the things here: concerts in Trójmiasto and Poznań, and on perfecting the arrangements of a couple of new songs for a secret project.
