Label & producer
Bounce Back will be released by Glitterhouse Records / NEWS on April 21, 2017. This album was recorded by producer Phill Brown, known from his work for artists like Talk Talk, Mark Hollis and Bob Marley.
These are changing times: sad times but times that are also filled with hope. And I felt like this changing world required a different position from me, another way of relating to it. Working on this album helped me in the process. (...) This album is my ode to connection, contact and consciousness.
Support: Belgian lo-fi/indie singersong writer Eyemèr.
