The groundwork was done for my first solo album @see_ase
in Cape Town last week! 😳😱😁 Although there’s still so much to come, it’s important to thank all those that have been part of this completely surreal, wonderful experience thus far:
First and foremost;
Peter Pearlson, the man, the legend! All life experience combined, this has surpassed absolutely everything and it’s due to your direction, vision, artistry, talent, heart etc. You have my gratitude, respect, complete trust and love! Thank you for shaping my ditties so beautifully and I look forward to what comes next in this exciting process.
Thanks to Nick Matzukis for believing in those rough iPhone recordings, encouraging me and making me all prog crazy! Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, Flower Kings, Deep Purple, Gentle Giant, Animals as Leaders etc etc etc. It’s going to sound weird but prog has totally changed my life and my voracious appetite and excitement for it has been a constant in the many changes I have gone through this year. Prog on! 😀
The wonderful session musicians I have worked with thus far who have truly changed my life/songs too! 🙏🏽🙏🏽 The closest I can get to explaining how much you have all meant to me is to recount an ugly, potentially life threatening gratitude cry I had while driving on Monday along that windy, winding Camps Bay Road to Hout Bay. All because Schalk Joubert is a genius 🙏🏽 Then on Tuesday I cried a bucket because Kevin Gibson is a genius 🙏🏽 And on Wednesday, because @florisleroux
is insanely talented 🙏🏽 I am so humbled to have played with you and that I will have your individual artistries and interpretations on this record.
Finally all these beautiful photographs are taken by the talented @angelikakollinphotography
. Thank you for capturing these moments so beautifully. Meeting you was definitely a major trip highlight and I look forward to working more together in future!
We have started making a record! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #music #southafricanmusic #firstalbum #album #recording #recordingstudio #singer #songwriter #singersongwriter #producer #guitar #drums #bass #dreamcometrue
