5 - VANDERVEEN, AD - FAITHFUL TO LOVE - (CD) 
SONIC RENDEZVOUS


The best things in life, as in music, have a way of happening before you know or even plan them."I was planning to keep still a while after the release of Still Now but failed miserably", comments singer/songwriter Ad Vanderveen one year after the release of his acclaimed electric/acoustic concept 2cd.An invitation from friend and producer/engineer Matt Butler (renowned for his work with Paul Mc Cartney, Mark Knopfler, John Martyn and many others) resulted in an atmospheric and all acoustic Cd called "Faithful To Love". The sessions took place in January 09 at The Stone House, Butler's 18th century Herefordshire home in England and feature the voices and guitars of Vanderveen and singer/companion Kersten de Ligny, as well as the trademark violin and mandolin sounds of old friend Jim Morrison, that go back as far as Ad's earliest work in the 80s. The song selection consists of 9 originals and 2 covers (by Diana Jones and John Gorka) that feature the voice of Kersten. "It was mostly an intimate celebration of friendship and love that was around the house and evoked this timeless folk spirit. I had 8 new songs and 1 remake that I thought of saving up working towards a new record in a year or so,but this all came pouring out now, to Matt's reassuring words of judgement "It's a Record!, a fantastic Record!", Vanderveen concludes.

8 - VANDERVEEN, AD - PRESENTS OF THE PAST/REQUESTS REVISITED - (CD) 
BLUE ROSE


a double CD by singer songwriter Ad Vanderveen. One disc consists of new songs and is titled: Presents Of The Past. The other disc contains newly recorded audience favorites entitled: Requests Revisited.As the titles suggest there is a connection between the two and they seem to go together like a kind of concept album. The listener gets an inside peek into, and an overview of, the singer songwriters life and work over a 40-year career.The basis for the new songs on Presents Of The Past was recorded live with an acoustic combo in a small theatre without an audience. The songs breathe an atmosphere of timelessness, rich with roots music influences and traditional instruments. The M.O. of Requests Revisited is more of a studio production with arrangements for band, strings and guest musicians.The common thread throughout both discs is acoustic under-and-overtones, with musicianship always serving the lyrics. The arrangements are sparse yet effective, with upright bass, percussion, guitars, keyboards, banjo, accordion, harmony vocals and even a gospel choir.

10 - VANDERVEEN, AD - STILL NOW - (CD) 
BLUE ROSE


Througout the history of folk/rock/pop music there has been a schizophrenia going on about acoustic versus electric music. Bob Dylan in the 60s or Neil Young in the 70s are great examples of mastering both styles and taking them to extremes, as well as shocking their audiencesin those times. Ad Vanderveen's new double cd STILL NOW the concept seems to revolve around the same old theme. The form of Still Now is twofold; one disc is an electric band record with plenty of guiter improviosation (Still Now - The Gargage); the other disc is purely acoustic in the way the songs were born. (Still Now - The Living).

TRACKLISTING: 01. Middle Ground 02. Always 03. Life's Lonely Dance 04. Good Mourning 05. Would You Ever Know 06. Fairwaether Friends 07. Up In The Air 08. Nowhere To Belong 09. The Long Way Round 10. Still Now DISC #2: 01. Nowhere To Belong 02. Clothing 03. Middle Ground 04. Still Now 05. Leave The World Behind 06. Life's Lonely Dance 07. Love So Lonely 08. Would You Ever Know 09. Heart Always

11 - VANDERVEEN, AD - THE BARN BASICS - (CD) 
VANDERVEEN


Parallel to "The Stellar Cellar Band", especially for acoustic music lovers, an independent limited-edition CD with acoustic versions of the same songs will be made available, called: The Barn Basics. This high-quality recording was made in an old barn with acoustics and an atmosphere very well suited to the music and it features Ad with his long time partner and musical companion Kersten de Ligny. The schizophrenia between electric and acoustic music runs throughout the history of popular music and no less through AVs career. Its two distinctly different listening experiences that seem to appeal to different audiences. Thats why, even in this time of declining Cd sales, we want to offer both options;The Barn Basics is for a layed-back acoustic listening mood,The Stellar Cellar Band is for a more energetic electric band listening mood.

TRACKLISTING: 01. New Musical Dreams 02. Melancholy Blues 03. Fool In My Life 04. While The Night Is Still Young 05. Passing By 06. Pioneer Here 07. Load Of Memories 08. Working 09. Highway 10. New Musical Dreams (reprise)

12 - VANDERVEEN, AD - WORLDS WITHIN - (CD) 
VANDERVEEN


At age 60 singer-songwriter Ad Vanderveen realizes more than ever that writing is primarily a personal necessity; its between him and the universe and a small but devoted fan-base are welcome to listen in.Vanderveen has been a musical adventurer for well over 4 decades, exploring and following his muse wherever it takes him. This time this path led to acoustic improvisational songs with a contemplative mood and atmosphere.Worlds Within is an album of poetry and music in motion, in the sense that it consists of poems set to music with an improvisational approach. Some of the songs turned out like compact folk tunes, while others seem to lose track of time and venture way beyond the usual 3 to 4 minute time span.The lyrics have a personal and philosophical character and the music breathes a contemplative and mystical atmosphere, rooted in an earthy acoustic folk style. "These songs started out private and personal, as songs do, and together with some great musicians we made what you could call a record of contemporary folk with some jazz and classical overtones."

TRACKLISTING: 01. Worlds Within 02. The Garden Of Gone Glory 03. Sinking In Doubt 04. Mystery 05. Impossible Love 06. Changing Like The Wind 07. All The Waiting 08. Affirmation Blues 09. Bigger Picture 10. Rise Up / Epilogue
