Spotted: Timo Zobel – Hazel Eyes

Today I’m introducing you to the composer and piano player Timo Zobel and the track Hazel Eyes. Timo started playing the piano at the age of six, but often refused to practice the songs his teacher wanted him to play.

I’ve always rather enjoyed to “try it myself” and play with my own melodies. Even though I continued with my classical education, I collected many songs over the years.

The track Hazel Eyes is Timo’s debut track and was released as a single on the 5th of January, 2021.

Tell us something about your track Hazel Eyes!
A while ago, someone told me I had hazel eyes. What I felt in that moment is hard to describe. Up until that point, I had always assumed that I had some kind of blue-green-ish eyes, plus a brown ring around the pupil. When I was asked about my eye color, for example for my ID card, I never really knew what to answer. It was similar with the song! I’ve always been into classical and jazz, especially at the university, but haven’t really felt at home anywhere. With Hazel Eyes, I knew that was mine, that was me. Hence the name of the song.

Time and time again, my closest friends and family have encouraged me to release this song. They said it offered room for so many emotions. And now I hope that you all find yourselves in it as well. And that you’re reviving the song through that, like I was playing it live for you.

Thank you for sharing this with us Timo!
