Info for Closer to the Music, Vol. 6
After the last Stockfisch compilation "Closer to the Music Vol. 5" was released in 2015, it was now time for the 6th edition of the popular sampler series. "Closer To The Music Vol. 6" not only features a new microphone on the cover, but also a more than 70-minute overview of which artists have been released by Stockfisch Records in recent years.
And there is also a pre-release: Allan Taylor and the young Danish songwriter Jacob Dinesen sing together a song that will appear on Allan's 2023 album "The Road Well Travelled".
The round of already available productions is opened by the Irish composer and singer with the beautiful voice, Brian Flannagan. He sings his touching song "Flowers In The Window". Very relatable in the timbre of his voice and in the way he crafts his songs is the new stockfish artist from London: Steve Folk. He belongs to the rare breed of songwriters who hide or conceal nothing. His songs, mesmerisingly beautifully crafted paeans to the trials and tribulations of life, are always delivered with unflinching honesty.
Although active for decades, Reg Meuross is a new discovery for Stockfisch: a folk singer of the English school whose songs and melodies put the listener in a "warm contentment". Represented on this sampler with his song "Jealous". The new introductions also include the Irishman Ian Smith, a storyteller par excellence, who thus fits perfectly into Stockfisch-Records' carefully selected portfolio of musicians.
The guitar virtuoso Jens Kommnick, who has already contributed to several Northeim productions as a filigree sideman on guitar, now got the opportunity to debut with his new solo album "Stringed" on Stockfisch. Speaking of guitar virtuoso: Werner Lämmerhirt recorded his ultimate album, which concludes his life's work, in Northeim shortly before his death. In all the sadness, his music and memory remain with us.
Besides the already well-known "stockfish" Katja Werker, Steve Strauss, David Roth, Paul Stephenson as well as the Bassface Swing Trio and Ranagri, there are also some surprising specials to introduce:
Chris Jones and Charlie Carr met at Stockfisch Studio in 1979 to record some of their own songs as well as a few traditional songs. The analogue tapes of these recordings waited 40 years in the Stockfisch archive to be rediscovered in 2019 and released as "Analog Pearls Vol. 3.
In the 80s she was in the Stockfisch studio for a CD mastering. In 2022, she returned for an impressive recording session: Anne Clark, the style icon of electronic music and the European New Wave movement, went completely new and unexpected ways at Stockfisch Records: The internationally successful singer recorded a purely acoustic album (violin and concert harp) with spoken poems.
A lot has happened in the life of singer Hannes Wader in recent years, both professionally and privately. The songs on "Noch hier - Was ich noch singen wollte" reflect this in an impressive way. One of the highlights of the new album is definitely a duet with his long-time friend Reinhard Mey. The two sing 'Le Temps Des cerises', an old French love and revolution song - and favourite song of both.
