It was great fun contributing to this huge project to support the good cause. Thanks to almost 100 musicians, producers and studio owners from all over the globe, initiator Michael Riesenbeck delivered a stellar 4-CD package with amazing Toto songs.
I tracked a lot of songs, also some of our Toto Tribute Project songs will be featured on the bonus CD. Since the Toto guys officially endorse this project, you know it's going to be good!
Also, I will perform live at the release party in Veenendaal on October 1. So get your tickets and/or order the CD and help support the good causes! Check out the message from Toto below, with a soundclip featuring yours truly on keys and guitars.
In between recordings for Fanfields II, I also started recording guitars for the new Frozen Rain CD. Very talented guys from Belgium with some fine classic melodic AOR songs. Other contributors are Mark Day, Roy Nichol and Don Lecompte (SamHill band), so it will be exciting for sure. After that I will start working with a great singer-songwriter who is on the famous talent show "The Voice", but more on that later. So I won't get bored any time soon!
The recordings for the new Christian Tolle Project cd are done! I had a blast recording all the keys and I did a fair share of all the backing vocals too. As usual, a lot of big names will collaborate on this one: Steve Lukather, John Parr, Philip Bardowell and many more.....
The CD is mixed and mastered and will be released worldwide in the next couple of months. Recorded and mixed by Dirk Brouns @ Studio Maasland and with my buddie Raymond Herveille on drums, I think you will find this to be the best CTP release ever.
I am currently working on 4 songs for Fanfields II, which is a huge project with excellent musicians from all over the world. You can support the realization of this outstanding tribute to one of the best bands in the world by participating. Therefore vistit the crowdfunding site. All further information can be found there as well. Profits will be going to the Michael Porcaro Fund (Sweet Relief Musicians Fund) and the ALS foundation and Fergie Frederiksen Foundation (Liver Foundation). The final release will be a 3-cd package + bonus material. The project is officially endorsed by Toto,and it's all for a good cause! Check it out on the FB site!
