Please meet Gloria Swanson – the band, not the actress! Heading from Hagen, this bunch of students create a sound so unique, Gloria, the actress would be proud of them.
Intensity meets virtuousness, a spare arrangement, a unique voice and the wonderful concept of the “Cardinal Sessions” – putting musicians into unusual places to perform and record them – make these outstanding videos of outstanding performances of an outstanding and fascinating band.
Christoph Hoffmann – Drums, Backing Vocals
Markus Foitzik – Bass, Organ
Louisa Lurweg – Violin, Tambourine
Lenz Plonka – Lead Guitar, Slide Guitar, Organ
Dennis Dippel – Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Piano
Äehm… Did I really use the term “outstanding” that much???
Visit: Cardinal Sessions
UPDATE: Now that I was just ready to post this little piece, I had to learn via my Facebook, that the band officially separated. When? Yesterday…! That’s no joke! Serious!
People, that’s what I call a pitiful shame! For me! ‘Cause I was about to declare them my favorites of the moment… and now they’re part of history. I’m too old, too slow, too far away…
But anyway… Everybody involved really has all reasons to look back on Gloria Swanson and be proud of it!
Eventually, life goes on and history is made every moment!
