This is AFTER THUNDER SUN, my third full lenght solo record. It's an album on which much time and love was spent in its making. It was a moment in time in which I felt at my most creative (regarding to multi- instrumentalism) and where many new ideas sprung forth. These new ideas danced and spun in many different directions to make this a most eclectic album. And yet despite its multifarious musical appearance, the one constant that keeps and brings it all together is the spirited focus of the player at hand.
