“It was nice to be able to form these songs starting out just on an acoustic guitar like I have been writing songs all my life.

Playing drums and bass and keyboards was a lot of fun in studio as well as I haven’t gotten a chance to do that since I was a kid.
» Formed over a period of more than 10,000 years, the Danube Delta continues to grow due to the 67 million tons of alluvia deposited every year by the Danube River.
