smooth

Åge Sten Nilsen


Hello and congrats on “Smooth Seas”… we liked how smooth, the album was.
 
Å: G’day. And thanks a lot. Actually I don’t find the album that smooth (ha ha)… but it’s melancholic and perhaps a bit dramatic, but without my usual energetic vocals.

Moonrise - Stopover - Life

I’ve always kept an eye on this inimitable band from Poland, which, auspiciously, released its 3rd album almost 3 years after “Soul’s Inner Pendulum”. This time the band has a new singer, Marcin Jajkiewicz, who joined them in 2011. He has a suave & colorful voice and I think that it was a good choice in the main.
