It was back in 2005 that I started thinking about forming a new band. Down through the years I had become friends with a lot of great musicians, but they came from different places all over Europe. And so the vision started to take shape: Invite a different bunch of musicians every year, practice for a day or two, play a few gigs over the weekend – and next year it will start all over again.
We did our first gigs in 2006, and it has been a great adventure so far: 20 different musicians over the last 12 years, more than 50 gigs in 4 different countries. In recent years the line-up has become more stable, the bond has become stronger, the band has become tighter… but the idea is still the same: making beautiful music with great friends from near and far. And so the journey continues…
It`s been a long time coming, but finally our first studio album „wide open space“ is released. After several intensive recording sessions, with the support of some brilliant guest musicians, the album has now come together and we are very happy with the result. A great mix of different styles and moods, with contributions from each of the 4 songwriters in the band, plus two intriguing instrumentals, all original material. The CD comes with a 16-page booklet and is available on CD Baby or directly from our record label RelaxRecords. Modern people can access the music also through Spotify or iTunes.
The official CD-Release-Concert is scheduled for the 6th of July in Andersen-Hüs, Risum-Lindholm, Germany. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
