RELEASED! October 2020
MINOR TALES MAJOR STORIES.
At last and without further ado, I am able to present to you my new EP Minor Tales Major Stories which was unfortunately held up for a few frestrating reasons. Some were decisions I made, others were situations out of my control. But lets leave that behind. The album will be solely available at Bandcamp where you can have a listen and then purchase.
My vision with making Minor Tales Major Stories was to increase the quality after making Ghosts of Tomorrow and so I was decided to add bass and drums in the form of Steffen Krauss and Daniel Fleischmann, who joined Michael Busch, Andrew Cadie, Katie Doherty and Andy Horn with all their respective wonderful talents. I do think that it is a fulfilled project and all involved gave this album a beautiful feel.
Its a finely designed digifile with an eight page booklet including lyrics and track credits. It contains six of my own songs and a cover version of the great ballad Lord Franklin .
The EP originally ran under the working title High Treason and reflected a disappointing phase which I encountered and wanted to underline. Like most things time does the healing and I reverted to a title more suited to taking in all the songs. The cover still resonates this walk through the dark valley and what painting or picture can relate this dreadful circumstance better than this Caravaggio masterpiece.
I hope you enjoy it and that you spread the word.
