Cherry Flambe , undivided love .

Undivided love ( sample )

This year i have had the privilege of making an album for Cherry Flambe with musician/producer Dick Prestondick preston .

You might call the music retro sounding . I can’t call the music retro because Cherry is from another era ,  for her & Dick this sound is ‘ now ‘ .

Stay tuned for more Cherry .

In Amsterdam

Steven Berendsen from the Dutch production of Wentworth ( cell blok h ) yesterday kindly showed me around their set in Alkmaar and also introduced me to their sound department . They film in a disused real prison  . The prison is famous for once being home for Willem Holleeder the man who kidnapped Freddie Heineken . It feels a bit like the old Pentridge ( blue stone college ) . You can read scratched messages in the walls made by prisoners ‘ I will never talk ‘  it’s very spooky . Looking forward to coming home to be with my family .  

Alkmaar prison .
