Today on Oct 20th it is exactly two years ago I had a very nice and fun day in a studio in Copenhagen with the wonderful guitarist, Gilad Hekselman. It happened as a part of his Artist In Residence stay here back then. An album has been carefully mixed and mastered by the fabulous August Wanngren, and so now I am able to let you have a listen to the song Tenderly, which is also the titletrack of a coming duoalbum which will be released digitally ultimo 2017. More info about the excact releasedate very soon....
Here is a link to the song Tenderly on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/lillysongs_com/tenderly
Hope you will enjoy it!
