Dotan-Home


Dotan Harpenau, better known by his stage name Dotan, is a Dutch singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Dotan was born in Jerusalem. He moved to Amsterdam at the age of 0 and he currently lives in Brooklyn. In search of inspiration for his album, Dotan retreated to the living room. Not just his own living room, the enigmatic singer-songwriter also visited the dens of complete strangers. The result is ‘7 Layers’, a magical album performed by a singular talent. “I suffer from stage fright,” Dotan admits, “and I decided the best way to overcome this, was to test my new songs in people’s living rooms. Unplugged, on my own, with nothing to hide, in a room full of strangers; I couldn’t think of anything scarier.” He posted a message on Facebook, asking people to invite him over to their homes. The response was overwhelming and he ended up playing over 100 solo gigs; from packed flats and tiny bedsits, to houseboats, farms and even castles. “Remarkable things happened”, he fondly remembers. “Sometimes, during an emotional song, I’d find myself in a room full of crying people. It was an amazing learning experience.”
It is not easy to stop, once you start reading his "About" section on his website, but I cannot post the whole text here... You can easily read more here: http://www.dotanmusic.com/about/.
I AM BACK HOME, MUSIC LOVERS! 




Run past the rivers, run past all the light

Feel it crashing and burning, 'til it all collides
Strike a match lit the fire, shining up the sky
As it all comes down again
As it all comes down again
As it all comes down again, to the sound

The sound of the wind is whispering in your ear

Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running 'til we're there
We're coming home now, we're coming home now
The sound of the wind is whispering in your ear
Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running 'til we're there
We're coming home now, we're coming home now

Hear the voices surround us, hear them screaming out

We'll be crying for mercy, we'll be crying out loud
Burn the bridges in our town 'til the point where we drown
As it all comes down again
As it all comes down again
As it all comes down again, to the sound

The sound of the wind is whispering in your ear

Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running 'til we're there
We're coming home now, we're coming home now
The sound of the wind is whispering in your ear
Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running 'til we're there
We're coming home now, we're coming home now

We are coming home, we are coming home

We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home, we are coming home
We are coming home

The sound of the wind is whispering in your ear

Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running 'til we're there
We're coming home now, we're coming home now
The sound of the wind is whispering in your ear
Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running 'til we're there
We're coming home now, we're coming home now
