Revival can be experienced in many ways! To start again with a clean slate, proudly and bravely making a stand against the difficulties ahead of us. Many sad things happened all around the world in the past but we are ‘Still Alive!’
Sometimes it is worth it to stop, take a deep breath, and simply live in the moment (could be good or bad). We did it! We stopped time and we recorded the moment.
When we started to work on this album we set our imagination free and we put it on a ship to collect experiences and inspiration.
First we set foot on shore in the land of our Celtic friends to inhale the scent of Scottish freedom (Donald MacGillavry).
Then we roamed the Irish Islands to search for traditional melodies and stories.
“Dude, there are many pubs all around the country and there are many ways to tap a beer!” (Finnegan’s Wake, Step It Out Mary, Santiana)
Sometimes we got lost during our journey but with the help of each other and with the help of our friends we found the right path (The Drunken Angels’ Club).
It was hard work! Luckily we had time to have some fun and rest. We accepted that we can not control everything and that is okay (The Boys Are On The Loose)!
We did not find the answer to the great secrets of life but we learned some wisdom (Ticktack, How We Love, For A Life, Haiku).
We made a recipe that we recommend to every new and old friend (Stir It Up!)!
You can find the ingredients on this album!
Your job is just to “Spice It Up” well!
