From my journal in 2004…
"Xris and I were driving across Okracoke island (a small island on the outer banks of North Carolina) trying to catch the 9pm ferry to Hatteras island where our motel was. I looked over at Xris and said what has now become one of our favorite quotes of all time… “Well, worse case scenario, we will write one song.” Sure enough we missed the ferry and now you get to enjoy the one song, My Song." 

November 2012…
I finally got around to recording "My Song"! It's the first song I've worked on since 2008. With this track I can now officially say "Welcome back Melodic Warrior, nice to see you again my old friend". It's been several years since I felt the creative spirit channel through me as it did in this piece. The lyric content is prophetic, its the perfect song to be working on as I enter back into the world of music. "…now I'm moving on because now I found my song…" 

You can download the song here for free. Please share it with all your friends!

Dancin' 'cross the sky, she caught my eye, changed my mind
Lips that spoke the truth, revealed the lies of all these times
Now I'm movin' on because now I found my song
Now I know the truth, ever since I met you

Singing lullabies, I realized… tomorrow 
Washed away my pain, dried my tears and sorrow
Now I'm movin' on because now I found my song
Now I speak the truth, ever since I kissed you

Now I'm movin' on because now I found my song
Now I see the truth, ever since I loved you

    I really liked this song. Remind me the old (new) Niko. The man that was melodic warrior, the man that believed in something different for the world , the man that had done the advertisement “Joy”, the man who created music, like “Love”… I am so happy and very proud for you. Keep walking…

    I’m very excited…. I love you!!!

    I’m so happy for you you found your Warrior within is still very much alive,
    from what I hear in your song he has renewed himself, I heard a new Niko, older, more experienced.

    Love the song, have to hear it some more, but I think fans will be pleasantly surprised. Beautiful in its simplicity!

    Very lovely, my friend…………..I can sense the release and freedom in your spirit. Love the way God works, he placed you on my heart this morning before and during my drive to work. A true gift, let us claim our joy! I can relate in finding my song, my joy, my light-the presence of love that has been there all along…………………………Truth speaks to me, the words of the Almighty speak Truth, Love, Light and those who choose to walk the path follow Truth…………….and those that do not choose to live in the darkness and hide behind lies.

    peace and light,

    This song is special Niko.. no doubt.. divine even. There is a reason for the timing, I feel it. I feel your heart very strongly in this one!

    Welcome back Melodic Warrior!

    I immediately sang along again. Ah – all the memories of that moment and the time on the Hatteras Islands and especially Ocrakoke came back right away. Andrea sang along too by the way.

    Worst case scenario, we wrote a song! ha ha

    Good stuff Niko.

    It was a truly creative time during road-tripping around as recall.

    OK, Let me just be frank. Your song SUCKS!!!! Too much Techno attributed to the lyrics. you need to tone it WAY down. Retweek the song better or maybe altogether go completely acoustic. Good lyrics; bad music. All I’m saying is I’ve heard better is all. Sorry!

    • avatar

      If it was all acoustic then it would sound like countless other songs out there, the electronic elements gives this piece a nice shift. Also the other reason I chose to include electronic elements is because the song is about finding “my song” and the truth is that I very much love music with electronic elements (both for listening and for composing) and I plan to release much more music in this direction. I understand it’s not your cup of tea, not all art will be beautiful to all people. Thank you for checking it out though, that’s how we find new things that we enjoy. When I go to the grocery store, I will often times pick up one item I have never tried before, most of the time it’s a disaster but sometimes it turns out to be a new favorite. ~ Niko @ Ashley Bowen

    Niko: congratulations and thank you for sharing your song.

    I see a deep evolution to introspection perhaps, to a new psicodelia with the more genuine rock influence. It remains Genesis, Led Zeppelin… 60s movements on contemporary form. Disagree with denara from cairo, I think your music has evoluted a lot from melodic and technical points of view.

    Huge hugs.

    • avatar

      Thank you for your thoughts Esther. Good observations. : ) I too feel like my music has evolved much. One thing I love about this song is that it has elements of surprise, as the song moves so does the emotion… and I really love the electronic synth bridge because it seemingly comes out of nowhere and is not predictable. And I very much like the way the song ends on a gentle yet confident note.

  27. It does sound alot like Pink Floyd at the beginning and seems to change a fair bit during the song but I like it, lots of potential.

    You have had a very long journey these past few years my friend, as have I. Projects come and go just like people and although many projects and relationships might fail; one thing I have learned all these years is that the actual journey itself is far more important than the arrival.

    Love “Fly Away”, very nice song!

    Thank’s for the song,is nice of you, Within the song it has a story that relate into a reality and many more. I like. Take Care

    Hi Niko, This is Margo from Nashville. I’ve missed you! Always love your music. This new one is very special and it touches my heart, just like all of your songs, in a very special way.

    Niko, so glad to see your writing and singing again. I have missed your emails and posts and especially your music. Love “My Song” so simple and very expressive. Welcome back! Look forward to seeing more of this Niko.

  52. avatar

    It’s been a long long time since i listened to your songs last time, maybe in 2006 when i was a freshman in the college. I even don’t remember how i run into your website. But when i received your email with your new song, i was really thrilled to recall the days when i listened to your songs. Time flies by, we’ve gone through a lot, different experiences though, but i guess both on the way of self enlightenment…

  53. avatar

    Long time no see!
    Great to hear your music again, thanks! :0)
    Have a lovely 2013.

    The other website above in your empty field is another of my Vimeo pages with my Egypt movie I made nov. 2012,maybe in a little pause you like to see and hear ,the backgrown music is from a good old friend of mine for very many years ,who often travels to India aswell.

    Hug Peace and Love for your Road Niko____________Colette

  64. Every map has its own distinct feel with unique gameplay and team-based objectives.

  65. While most Overwatch plahers stick to the rules, there’s also a small group that tries too game
    the system.

  66. "My Song" is well produced and a nice dynamic mix of music. The singing seems similar to the style of U2, and I mean that as a complement.

    It even sounds better than your rendition of the "Collin Raye – Love Me" at the Beverly Roark marketing banquet.

    Stay happy!
