Band :
Title : Write me notes
Release Date : May 1, 2010
Label :
Catalog ref. : WAM-020
Format : CD

The debut EP from guitarist/songwriter Maarten Swaan. After the breakup of Melou, Maarten decided to go solo, writing a group of songs inspired by nothing more (or less) then … love…. and the sound influenced by the psychedelic rock bands of the late 60s and early 70s. A beautiful concept album, classic sounding with unique vocal arrangements.
