The Funky Man
My second album. Written, produced and performed by myself on almost all songs except for two songs. Additional production by Lars Chriss and CFM.
Coz I’m Kahsay
My first album. Wrote most of the songs myself. Produced by Max Martin, Denniz Pop, Rami Yacoub from Cheiron Studios in Stockholm.
A song about time. What it means and how it affect us all. This is the only thing we can not get more of. None of us.
Let Me Be Your Lover
The last song I presented for the record company before I told them that I didn’t want them to release my first album. I took the master and left them due to different opinions on how to promote my music.
I wrote this song sitting in a coffee shop thinking that everything in life sucked. Wich it did at the time. Had no job, had no girlfriend, had no money and on top of that had my dad recently died in a drowning accident… For what’s its worth: life can and should suck sometimes so one can see all that’s good also. Do you agree?
This song is one crazy creation. It started with an odd drum beat and guitar riff that came to me while jamming in the studio. The aim was to keep it as simple as possible – a feeling of first takes on everything.
Dance With Me
A song about the joy dancing gives me. I hope that the nod to the late seventies and eighties is accepted as a celebration for that era. I also hope that the song gives you the urge to stand up and move to the beat.
A song about feelings of emptiness and the consequences that can give in terms of sleeping disorder. I wrote this song when I was in a non creative state of mind and was having problem with just song writing. I’d like to think that many of us recognize these feelings. We are not alone.
The song is about the importance to be cool and do things slowly. In these time and age we tend to do everything fast and in a hurry. As if we want to do as much as possible in the shortest amount of time. And what is that good for? For whom are we doing things in that pace. At the end of the day it is not the fastest that counts, it is with what quality you live your life that counts.
A song about how we all are hiding behind a mask. Sometimes we just want to have someone we can be full transparent for. When people are looking at you what do they see? Do they really see the inner you? Do you want them to?
Yes I Do
This song is based on a dream I had. In the dream I was on my way to my wedding. Dressed sharp, nicely cut nails, freshly brushed theets and in a great mood. Suddenly a woman approached me and started to question me and my mission and if I was really sure about this marriage thing. Stating that I should really consider my options.
I’m Not Falling
The song is about how important it’s to keep your dreams alive and strive to achieve them. I wrote the song the same evening I was informed that one of my bands former drummer was killed in a car accident, leaving wife and family behind. I was devastated and tried to put my feelings and I wanted to celebrate his life and one thing he did was living to the fullest.
With a groove delivered by a funky dude dancing in the club in a brand new yellow suite? Kahsay is one rare funky fella’ from a near by galaxy on a mission to spread the holy groove. In this song , Kahsay goes really funky and down with the beat. The song is about the feeling you get when you’re down and dirty and move gracefully with the groove.
Clap Your Hands
A demo I did back in the day – that I decided to rerecord and release as a more serious song. Just one riff and improvisation in the studio. I had the lyrics written already and I think I was 14-15 years old when I wrote that lyric.
Another funky release from me. This time the MOOG bass and the guitars is the foundation for the song. And the story is about a man that wake up and find himself in the same room as his other self. A weird story about losin’ it… not at all close to me
The song is about a really funky man – think Morris Day and you got a mental picture about the man I try to describe in this song. I woke up one Saturday morning with the guitar lick in my head.
Me Myself And I
A raw blend of funk, rock and perky guitar lick tied together with a tight vocalist and melodic chorus. Just “Me, myself and I”. This guitar lick came to me one Sunday morning.
You’re The Only One For Me
I’m back with a brand new danceable pop song with a catchy melody and hook. In this single ”You’re The Only One For Me”, I sing about a woman that means everything to me. It’s a feel good song about love, affection, attraction and the pure joy to be in love with someone that loves you back.
Funk You Up
Are you ready to be funked up? In this single “Funk You Up”, Kahsay goes once again really funky and down with the beat. The song is about a man that have the rhythm, groove and beat and by just following him on this four minute journey you’ll have enriched your life.
Sexy, Sexy Lady
The story behind this song is one of a kind. I was sleeping. Deep. I jumped out of bed, humming the melody to the chorus. Booted the keyboard, inserted disks and at the same started to write down the words in my notebook. I programed drums, added bass line and chords. Got hold of a tape recorder and then sang the newly created lyrics as a first draft. And then I went to bed.
My first single since 1996, Annie a collaboration with Lars Chriss from Lions Share. Released in 2016. This is the one song that got me to write and compose music again after a couple of years of hiatus doing nothing musically.
Drives Me Crazy
This song is kind of weird since I have been writing on a song originally called “Wet”. And not wet as in rainy wet, rather only on one leg wet because one is down under pressure and life sucks so much so even the dogs pee at your legs.
I had a thing (still have actually) back in the days when I was going nowhere without a notebook and a pen. When ever the inspiration hit me I was ready. This song came about first with the imho cool fraise “Excuze Me – this is my planet too”
Coz I’m Kahsay
During my “My Name Is Prince”- era I wanted to write a similar song. This is the result and is also the title song of my first album. About a man who doesn’t need any permission from anybody.
