spring is in the air and hopefully we will have a nicer springtime than last year...
This Friday 28th March I will be singing on a vernissage that is inspired by spring and summer. It's an exhibition from Dutch multi-media artist Irene Vlak at the wonderful Galerie Simoncini in Luxembourg town. Irene creates amazing installation pieces with household and recycled objects. Have a look on Irene's website and of course you're very welcome to come and see her artwork this Friday between 18.00 and 20.00 hours. And listen to some music at the same time.
I also wanted to share a second video with you that me and my guitar player Dany Schwickerath recorded with the sound engineer Georges Majerus at the Ancien Cinema in Vianden last year. This is a beautiful ballad from Michel Legrand called What are you doing the rest of your life. The other video already has more than 1000 views so that's really wonderful. If you want to see it (again), don't hesitate to click here :-).
Regarding upcoming concerts:
I will be singing with the Blue Art Orchestra in Düsseldorf at the Jazzschmiede on Saturday 5th April. We had a great concert already at the Stadtgarten in Cologne last Monday with a new program and we will give our best again in Düsseldorf.
And for the first time I will be singing with my new quartet on the Jazz & Blues Rallye in Luxembourg on Saturday 19th July. This is one of the big events of the year in Luxembourg so don't miss it! I don't know yet where and when I will play but I will let you know next time.
And last but not least I would like to share something with you that I've kept for myself for a while as I wanted to cherish the beautiful moments and the music. I've been in the studio in Cologne (at Topaz Studio) with piano player Frank Harrison in February and we've recorded 10 beautiful tunes for a new album. I'm very thrilled about it and I think the album is going to be wonderful (if I may say so myself). At the moment we have to decide if we will look for a label or if we will publish it ourselves. So, stay with me and I will let you know when the album will be ready.
Enjoy the spring and stay tuned!
All the best,
