3 days in the studio, one big recording room, a handful of wonderful musicians, without smoke and mirrors: We've recorded my forthcoming album "Tales from the feverworld" live @ TRESOHR-STUDIOS in Oberhausen, Germany. The band: Dania König: upright piano, accordion, glockenspiel, backing vocals - Markus Segschneider: electric guitars - Dirk Schaadt: Hammond Organ, Wurlitzer - Marius Goldhammer: bass - Mario Garruccio: drums

What is this project all about?

It's been 5 years since I released my last CD "Affairs of the heart."
About 4 years ago, I embarked on a journey which brought me together with wonderful people and musicians from all over the world.
I wrote songs with many of them. Others inspired me to write.
It's about time I released these songs on a CD.
And so he journey continues.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

With your help I am hoping to raise enough funds to realise this project unbent and more importantly, in high quality.
This project is basically for anybody who wants to contribute.

Why would you support this project?

Firstly, I hope it will give you a bit of a good feeling to support independent music.
Secondly, the heyday of record companies spending money on a projects like this is long gone.
And last but not least, I still believe there are more great artists out there who are getting their music heard these days. One reason for that is fundraising platforms!

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

Well, the list is long. There are loads of things that have to be paid for:
the studio, the wonderful musicians, graphic designers, the duplication of the CD etc. and if everything goes well, I might even have a bit left for promotion.
Vinyl, of course, is a still dream of mine...

Who are the people behind the project?

Me, Martin Praetorius. singer-songwriter, traveller, Man in the Red Van!
