A Singer of Songs is the songwriting output of Lieven Scheerlinck. In 2016 he released “Fading”, his fifth album. These past 8 years he has toured the better and worse parts of Europe. His music has been compared to snow flakes falling in slow motion and a blanket on a cold night. Lieven lives in sunny Barcelona but he was born in Belgium, so he fully appreciates these comparisons.

“A deep whisper of Barzin and Damien Jurado, a dusty atmosphere which seems to refer to a Conor Oberst stripped of emphasis.” – Onda Rock
“Like a warm blanket you want to put over you after a bad day. It’s haunting and sweet but there is a tinge of despair laced within it.” – LAisthenewNY.com
