My lifetime  love affair with photography never affected my passion for music; it actually complemented it ... Well, I guess photography and music are both images of the artist's soul ... From classical piano in the early 60s, to guitar, folk, pop, and rock, keyboards and synths, today my muse is pulling me back to simple acoustic ballads, trying to tell simple stories which make for our everyday life ... My 2 albums 'In The Confines Of Your Head'  and 'Back To The Roots'  were released in 2005 and 2012. Hopefully a third one will follow soon.

Queen Of The Rooftop Nights |  Official Video

In this rearranged and remixed track from the 2012 album "Back To The Roots" I’m trying to depict Beirut fiery night life where “rooftop” divas never tire and get the best out of playing the seduction game, come the hot season.

You Gotta Make Your Move |  Official Video

My latest photo-based vid for this remastered ballad from the 2012 album "Back To The Roots". Playing the acoustic guitar, bass, percussion, plus vocals, I’m trying to depict in this song the lack of real-life communication in an age where almost all social interaction thrives on a virtual cloud.

True Friendship Never Dies |  Official Video

I wrote this ballad, from my 2012 album "Back To The Roots", in memory of so many friends long and too soon gone. It is my celebration of true friendship, the one which never goes into oblivion, no matter what life has in store.

Un Certain Regard

In this new slideshow I'm trying to hear the thoughts that I see through these eyes, windows to the deep ...

 

 

Shady Lady

'Shady Lady' is a slideshow of a recent summer photo shoot in Laqlouq Mountain, Lebanon, with model (and Interior Designer) Pascale Hoteit. Instrumental music track is 'Shady Lady', written in 1992, has that retro, mediterranean, sunny flair which I felt helps nicely convey the mood of the visuals.
