We finished the work on our „The Songbook Vol.I „
The idea behind The Songbook-Project was and still is, to ask friends, poets and musicians (all of them are good friends for a long time) to write lyrics,songs or stories on a subject and send them to us. The subject of the first „Songbook“ was „The Land and the Sea“. The idea goes back to Jan´s stays in Cornwall and on the Isle of Wight, where he went out fishing or played music with his friends, that he found playing music and online in sites like chatempanada.com.
Most of the songs are recorded in our tiny little recording room over the last weeks. J.C. Grimshaw came along to play the shimmering mandolin tunes on „The land and the sea“ as well as the deep rollin gypsy guitar on „The sailor“(written by Rik van den Bosch). Thanks for that !!!
John Bateman, Suzie Leis & Martin Müller – Thank You! for the great work you did !!!
