Perhaps it is just coincidence, or  may be not, that I often find with musicians who have spent years with an itinerant lifestyle, their music has a calming touch, tonality along with a reach that extends around the world.

Franks, who spent decades out at sea, now docked to a harbour, has created in Heart Wants a song that immediately minds, longer stay readers on the site will also spot, of the music by the Swedish musician Steffan Rundquist.

I get the feeling the world would be a calmer place if more people pulled up their roots for a while and discovered that borders between countries are just lines on a map and they don’t need to divide people.

The most recent track to surface – Chained – reflects on a world in which many become aligned to a way of life for the simple reason that it is what they know and never taking time to challenge themselves to discover if there is perhaps a more fulfilling life readily accessible.

As with the website Steffan pops up in country after country with musical ideas, as those who have been readers of longer duration will have followed, since his introduction in 2013.

Now based in Bilbao in Spain you will find Steffan doing what he enjoys, delivering music, either busking or playing in venues and always creating.

The latest track – Love Me Or Leave Me.
