From indie to jazz... It's all about the music, talent and goals.

As freelance consultant I enjoy working with the talent, more than the style. Yes, you will find lots of jazz here, but also electronica and indie. When it comes down to it, its all about the music and the sound...the story will then unfold.

One of my long term music relations is Kirstine Stubbe Teglbjærg. Former leadsinger in Blue Foundation and now working on her first solo album. We have worked together since 2000, when we both went to Japan with Blue Foundation on the bands very first international tour. We later seperated from the band as “Eyes on Fire” hit big in “Twilight" and ended up all dubsteped..

Now a few years later, hits and tours we are back teaming up. Now solo, now singing  Danish and a whole album coming. For Kirstine its all about doing it on her own. She is here on her own all the way. From the first single note and word to the final mixing, producing and promo process. It's not just the DIY here, its not as much as the goal but more the journey. The fulfilling experience in being in touch with it from the beginning, taking the time. Letting things grow.
First single is already out ”Drømmenes Lyd” and 2nd single ”Tæppet er Faldet” will be out early February. We are just in the process of getting the last details on schedule, so I can't drop the curtain yet. Kirstine will be in London next month mixing the album and then we will be closer to a official release date 

I have recently had the plessure working with 2 new Danish jazz composers. Two very different talents, different music and flavours. And two very different business scenarios, but still with one focus in mind: Helping both getting the music out and released.

Søren Gemmer is releasing his debut ”At First”  18 Feb. via Ilk Music and as Special Agent, I will assist Gemmer with his promo goals and hard work. The album is recorded with Søren Gemmer’s  quartet. The guitarist,Per Møllehøj, and drummer Andreas Fryland both contribute toone composition, both known on the Danish jazz scene for their versatile and distinct  playing. The Finnish double bass player, Tapani Toivanen has achieved recognition for his work with Joona Toivanen Trio with releases on EMI Blue Note and CAM Jazz. The album is recorded and mixed by the legendary Dutch sound engineer,Chris Weeda, and offers a sonic clarity and finesse at a very high level.I will be posting out press on Søren Gemmer soon, but meanwhile you can enjoy the album teaser here... and check the plays.. For a new young jazzplayer this is really going well. I wish the very best for Gemmer in 2013:

Behind Momento is the Danish composer and tenor saxplayer Fredrik Moth. I did ”promo sessions” with him, giving him tools on how to promote your album. For Fredrik it's all about the DIY process which I enjoy and respect so much. I adore when musicians want to learn more about the who releasing and promo process. Getting into it, diggin' it.  The music of Momento is organic feel of jazz and world, delightful and easy vibes and I am sure Fredrik is licking some stamps and pushin' in some doors now... Just get it organized. And it seems to have helped. Gained pretty good airplay on National Radio P8 jazz and the reviews are coming in as we speak.
