On Sept 13th, yepp Friday the 13th! I will be releasing a new album on the NAXOS label.
The album is called New Orchestral Hits 4 Kids and the band name is Mr. E & Me.
We challenged ourselves to arrange and record an orchestral album consisting of melodic pop songs but without involving a contemporary pop/rock rhythm section, and it worked! The unique timing of the orchestra is not constrained, and the arrangements give the individual musicians both playful dynamics and meaningful purpose. It’s so much fun writing and performing for a young audience and at the same time, keeping the older audience preoccupied with musical complexity and lyrical twists.
Check out our first single with the one and only Mari Boine !
