I’m very happy and proud of having had the opportunity to play drums on the new Carmen Linares album “Verso a verso” dedicated to the great Spanish poet Miguel Hernández. “Verso a verso” is the first studio album by “The Queen of Song” in 9 years since “Raíces y Alas”, released in 2008. Naturally all the lyrics are by Miguel Hernández and there are two of Spain’s greatest singers at the moment, Silvia Pérez Cruz and Arcángel singing as guest artists. The arrangements are by Pablo Suárez, Salvador Gutiérrez and the artist herself and the album is recorded and mixed at Stateroom Studios by the engineer and studio owner Oscar Herrador.
The official release gig was in Circo Price, Madrid on 26th of January. You can hear us play the new material also in:
Festival de Jeréz, Jeréz de la Frontera (Spain): 26th February
Majadahonda (Spain): 11th March
Orihuela (Spain): 18th March
And there will be more dates coming soon…
