Don't Ask Me Why
Humbly For Her
The first release on my own label, St. Cecilia Music. I started the label after my record deal with Universal was fulfilled. I chose not to sign a new contract with any company, and begun researching. What would it take to release this album myself in the same professional manner as the big guys on my previous releases? Reliable, qualified help was a must, regarding my well established career at this point.
As producer and musical playmate I chose Kjetil Saunes. I've been a fan of his solo albums and magnificent voice for years. Kjetil and Reidar Skår did the mix. The recordings were made in Kjetil's home, HøytogLavt Studio, in Bislett and Majorstua, Oslo, 02/03.
Additional musicians: Sigmund Groven (harmonica), Eivind Aarset (guitar), Espen Jørgensen (guitar), Anders Engen (drums & perc.), Paulin Skoglund Voss (cello).
This album is a fling with harmonies and personal lyrics. All lyrics are of course included in booklet, as usual.
