TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR LION MUSIC RELEASES
This album I wrote throughout the years 1989 until 2002, I
made several demo's throughout the years and decided to
put them on my first CD, I wrote 3 more tunes and the 12
song version was released by Lion Music, this album is
fully instrumental and was my very first try to make
Colour Journey (2006)
My second solo album I wrote throughout 2004 and 2005,
some ideas came from older demo tapes I made or jams I did
with other musicians, but in general this album was
totally new. I decided to ask a lot of guest musicians for
this record since it became a very diverse album, with
lots of influences showing my ability of playing the
guitar but also as a song writer. I also asked several
vocalists to sing on the record, this album became half
instrumental and half vocal.
A Live Time Journey (DVD, 2006)
This DVD was filmed at the CD release party of Colour
Journey, January 2006. I decided to play the album Colour
Journey in its entirely with almost all guest musicians
who also played on the album, this added with some songs
of my first solo album and a few cover songs. The whole
show was filmed with 5 camera's and I decided to make a
DVD from that since the shootings became really good as
well as the audio recording of the show, which I mixed
myself later at my house.
I also added a lot of extra features , like backstage
recordings, a show I did in Thailand and a picture gallery
Sun Caged (2003)
The first Sun caged album was written throughout 1999 -
2003, most of the songs appeared also on older demo's of
Sun Caged featuring a different line up at that time and
different singing lines. The album was mixed by Arjen
Lucassen (Star One / Ayreon) and featured the old Sun
caged line up that existed until 2004.
The second Sun Caged album featured a new and more stable
line up of the band, most songs were written from 2004 -
2006. The album showed a little different side of Sun
Caged and showed that the band has grown to their fullest.
At the moment Sun Caged are mixing their third album "The
Lotus Effect" which is recorded with the same line up as
on "Artemisia" and will show a way more mature version of
the band, since most of the songs on this album are
written in the rehearsal room together as a band and it
will show the chemistry we have as a group.
Tribute to Jimi Hendrix:
Right after the first Sun Caged record the band recorded a
version of "Freedom" for this record, it became a pretty
funny and old sounding version.
Tribute to Shawn lane:
I wrote a song for this album called "Delusion", the song
is a funky and groovy fusion alike track which I recorded
together with Sun Caged drummer Roel Van Helden and
bassplayer Rob Van Der Loo.
