This is what it's all about.
The role of a musician is to give a voice to the many different stories around us… This album draws these stories from the greatest theatre in the world… Vienna… From late night würstel stands to the many cafés… This album uses the backdrop of Vienna to portray the human emotions within us (and within me)… It’s a special album for me and it is the first time I have really pieced together a whole narrative concept from within and also used this narrative backdrop as a different approach to mental health.
The album is recorded all in analogue with Container Recordings at Cselley Mühle in Oslip/Burgenland Austria with The Holy Gamblers, aka Marlene Lacherstorfer on bass, Ivo Thomann on drums & Ryan Thomas Carpenter on keys and organ.
My project is special because ...
Corona times have brought different challenges for all walks of life everywhere around the globe. But as with a lot of challenges, it has also allowed time to take a step back and reflect. This time to reflect has allowed me to place my feet in one place and look within… For years I had been running from mental issues and never had the courage to channels my thoughts and visions into a creative outlet… This next album is this the first time I have achieved this…. It’s like as if the last years have bottled up creatively and now the backdrop of Vienna has let my thoughts and emotions come through… And whilst painting to this backdrop I have realised that everybody shares the same emotions and stories but just expresses them in different ways… That’s what ultimately what makes this album special… Its portrait of stories we all share.
This is what I need backing for.
