about

The melody of this track has been with me since I was in my early twenties. You could say it is maybe the melody of my life... It was featured on Iona's Open Sky album, almost 20 years ago now. Intersting to see how different I play it now. Dave and I recorded this on the spot, completely improvised, with only 1 or 2 edits... Enjoy it...

Frank van Essen is such a musician. Known for his powerful drumming & violin playing for UK band Iona and his strings for DJ Martin Garrix, he is venturing out into a whole musical world of his own". ... more
