First things first, the first eponymous track of the Album, an invitation for a musical journey:
The Lone John Harps: Victor Olivry on Lead Guitar, Mathias Neyrand on vocals and rhythmic guitar and Nicolas Favrel on drums...
The second album, for which this campaign has been started, was written in the middle of the forests, the banks of the rivers and the heart of the valleys of the South American continent. It tells of the 12 500 miles-long road-trip that has led from Peru, down the Chilean coast, across the Andes, through Argentina, to Uruguay, Paraguay, Brazil, Bolivia and Peru.
It was written on the banks of rivers, in the middle of forests and the heart of valleys of the South-American continent and tells about a search, the moments of doubt and uncertainty that come with it, but also the moments of euphoria and well-being.
Places (the Quebradas of La Higuiera where the Che was murdered), people (Father Angel, the Kids, Mme Irma) and experiences (San Pedro, the crossing of the Bolson) have shaped these songs that prolong the feeling of freedom of this journey…
Help us record the ten tracks of this new album, some of which you might already know, others which you will discover…
The new album arrives as the natural continuation of a project that has existed for three years.
Here is a long version of the video presenting the project, which includes and links it with the previous Album "A-biding my time":
