After more than a decade of traveling around the globe with all sorts of bands in different line-ups, I felt that I was ready to record my first ever solo album. I started to compose a huge number of songs during all my travels, in hotel lobby’s, airport lounges, during endless bus drives etc. ...
Then, finally the day came closer, that first day of recording, just me, my piano and a little bit further in the control room my dearest sound engineer.
