What a pleasant surprise when violinist and singer Meri (former Eluveitie, Irij) asked me if I would be interested to join her to collaborate on new songs for MERI. She sent me some demos and I was more than convinced that something special was served on a silver plate. Even though it’s new musical territory for me, I connected quickly to this style of music. We started right away exchanging ideas. From Ireland to Switzerland and back again. It felt very familiar, as if we had known each other forever. We filled the blank canvas with all kinds of musical colors. From pitch black to shining bright tones – you name it. She’s such a gifted musician and a wonderful human being. It’s real fun and inspiring to work with Meri. Her songwriting is far away from mainstream. Something I really appreciate and admire. I am sure that the outcome will be one of a kind.
Meanwhile check out her latest EP “Feverish” https://meriisfeverish.bandcamp.com/releases
Now I will go back to my studio and continue recording guitars and wicked sounds for her new songs. Stay safe and sound and stay tuned.
