Acknowledgement

In this case we are grateful to Ivo Meijer for his double solo on ‘I hear the children’ and for the slide guitar on ‘Do you care’. Great job! Ivo is a very talented guitarist and it was a joy to work with him. Thanks, Ivo.

Singer Jerney Molenaar helped us out with some backing vocals. She has a fabulous voice! Thanks, Jerney! You showed us how a professional singer does the job!

Johan wants to thank his brother Lex, who invented the Lex Bos Superdrive. The drive is really super and has been an inspirational tool during the whole recording process. The drive warms up our sound a lot.

Many other people helped us in one way or another. Some by giving feedback, others by just listening and giving us the feeling that we were / are on the right track.

First of all I (Johan) want to mention my family. Thank you for letting me do my thing…

Singer Freddy Koridon in particular was important to me. Thanks, Freddy! You paved a part of the way I finally had to walk myself.
Danny van Kessel and Rein Wynja were also stimulating factors on this road. Thanks, guys!
Johan is also very grateful to the inspiring musicians and friends Lars Karakusevic and Eva Auad, who lend us their highly sensitive and well trained ears in the final process and came up with some very helpful suggestions. Thanks a lot! Bart Klop also gave some interesting suggestions. We appreciate it very much.

For our videoclips we wanted to be as basic as possible. Our goal was to spend only time, no money. In this respect we like to thank our friend Wim Kuijpers for helping us out with ideas, filming and feedback.

Last, but in fact first, Johan likes to thank Louis for his enthusiasm, patience, skills and – above all – friendship. Working with him is always a joy. Looking forward to our next album…
