(2013/Crazy Love) 9 tracks. I was touring with GoGetters and met Ellen Krantz by a coincident. I have had an idea of forming a band, to play a mix of Rockabilly with a Country & Western flavour. Dressed up like a bunch of Truckdrivers from Kentucky with "Daisy Duke" on vocal. With Ellen, it was "GO" from day one. Ellen is the expert on Countrymusic and I was stuck in the Rockabilly rhythm. We started writing songs right away, and ended up with the "On the contryside" album. A mix between Rockabilly and Country-twang, played with slapbass but no Gretsch guitar ;) Not copying the sound of the 50's, more modern. But yet, a familliar Rockabilly aura is covering the band. During the writingprocess for the first album, just because we are so much influenced by real American folkmusic and Country & Western music, songs started to show up as more "Bluegrass" stylish kind of songs. With Dobro and Steelguitar. All of a sudden we had material for another album. "Smooth". As the title put it, the songs are smoother. A little bit serious.
