Kent Nielsen is Danish but living in Lübeck (North Germany). He’s got a history as an author, percussionist, shoe shop clerk, record label guy, mail order honcho, night porter and ukulele player a.o. But there’s one thing he’s been doing for ages – and that’s singing.
He just completed an old dream – his first „solo album“. Roughly half of the roots rock colored songs were written together with Stefan Kletetzka (DEEP RIVER), some are brand new while a couple dates back to Kent and Stefan’s time in ONE BAR TOWN. Hence nothing seemed more appropriate than getting their old rhythm section Skinny Kaspereit and Thorsten Luck on board for that part of the recording sessions which took place in Göttingen’s Out-O-Space Studios. Three covers were added, one by GLEN CAMPBELL and another two originally written by EDDIE & THE HOT RODS and C.V. JØRGENSEN featuring Kent solo on the ukulele. Three more songs, drenched in Mod and 60s sounds, were written together with Helge Reich (JAM TODAY) and two musicians from his current band RUTSCHBAHN DREI, Jens C. Möller and Dirk Holtkötter. This part of the recordings took place in Hamburg’s Tonhotel Studio. The album also includes guest appearances from George Whitfield (FIDDLEBOX, ex-PRESSGANG) & Martin Wenk (CALEXICO, NADA SURF, JUDITH HOLOFERNES).
The album was successfully financed via a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com. With the tune "Star Wars Diaries" being released as a digital single on Aug 5th.
A great song for toe-tapping, hip-swinging and singing along!
