Both men have released two albums of their own. The third member in the band is drummer/pianist Tuomas Hakkarainen. The band has just finished recording their debut album and are looking for labels and contacts. INSPIRATION The initial inspiration for this album has been the life of Kaspar Hauser. Also known as “The Child of Europe”, Kaspar Hauser was a mysterious foundling in 19th century Germany, strongly linked with the princely German House of Baden. He spent his first 15 years locked away from any human contact, in the darkness. But still, after his mysterious appearance in Nurenberg in 1828, he not only learned the academic skills, he turned out to be an extraordinary human being carrying the impulses of empathy and forgiveness. Something rose from the ashes. THE ALBUM The album was recorded in Kingston, New York with producer Malcolm Burn (Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, Daniel Lanois, Emmylou Harris, Lisa Germano, Giant Sand, Patti Smith). The musicians on the album are John McGregor, Mikael Hakkarainen, Tuomas “Libby” Hakkarainen and Malcolm Burn. It was recorded and mixed by Malcolm Burn.
