Album Promise of Spring


It is finally here: Promise of Spring my long anticipated first full length album!

Contemplating and celebrating life –¬†Finding a safe harbor in the storm –Hope!

These are the stories the album is telling. In collaboration with producer Lorenz Schaller, 11 original songs have been cooked up at Soundpro Studios near Berne, Switzerland. Spiced up by the flavour of numerous very talented and creative musicians the album has become what its name stands for: bursting life, light at the end of the tunnel, hope in a hopeless place, a safe harbor in a storm – short: Promise of Spring!

You can per-order the album (digital)or the CD (Hardcopy) here:
