Description : Update Nov 11.: Mastered
Many might be surprised to hear music here that lies somewhere between chanson and folk.
We wanted to write a song that wasn't dominated by synth or electric sounds. The text was written by Claudia Boekels, the music largely by Angelica Schwanitz and to a lesser extent by Manuela Boekels.

We were especially looking forward to the wonderful collaboration with Tanja Wirtz, who has great talent on the accordion, and Danior, who can make his violin cry.

This is a sweet song, intro was unique. The great singing reminds me of a couple of female singing artists from the 1960's, Melanie Safka and Mary Hopkin. Love the accordion, make it louder please! The violin was great as well!

Well done to everyone involved with this track!

Hi Wayne, thanks for listening and for your kind words. Yes my sister and I love this kind of music. Although people prefer to listen to rap and pop here, we are still surprised and happy about the encouragement we have received for our music in recent years. At the moment we're working with a small big band on a couple of Dixieland-style songs. Will definitely release a song from it here as well. I wish you a nice week, best regards Manuela

Hello, thank you for your visit and your great compliment. Patience patience! It takes us several weeks, sometimes months, to get a song ready to release. But don't worry, there's more to come. Greetings Manuela

All I am saying is give peace a chance.
Hallo Manu, du siehst dass ich bei euch bin. Sehr schoen, sehr gut, bravo, wundervoll. Ich haette sogar oefter die Zeilenenden nach oben gesungen, um mehr Dramatik reinzubringen. Wirklich sehr schoen in dieser Zeit sowas zu hoeren (leider nicht oft genug, warum???)!!!
10 von 10 Sterne.
Liebe Gruesse

Hallo Matthias, danke fuer dein grosses Lob. Du wirst es nicht glauben. Aber das mit der Stimme anheben haben wir auch ausprobiert aber es dann doch gelassen. Wir haben uns fuer die weichere naiver klingende Version entschieden. Ich denke, da es schwierig ist eigene Texte zu schreiben und sie dann auch noch selbst zu singen, macht es fuer viele hier schwierig sich nicht nur musikalisch sondern vokalisch auszudrücken. Liebe Grüße Manuela

Beautiful in every aspect. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this track. I have a keen passion for folk music so this was wonderful treat. Well done!

Beautifull song and music.
That accordion is great.
Its so cool that Claudia is part of it also.
Im waiting for something with my little fan now.
2Sisters replied 17th Mar 2023 - 1 year ago
Thanks mom! There are at least 2 men there *lol. And when it comes to family, two are still missing: you and your little fan. Although your little fan is currently struggling more with adolescent feelings than with music *laughs. Greetings and a sunny weekend

The bells are cool. No to familiar with genre sounds like the religious genre. But it's the guitar what separates the two I think. Excellent instrumentation. Holy feel from vocals. Gentle calm listening feel. Great quality. Excellent outro. I know u have dislike for bad outros lol
2Sisters replied 17th Mar 2023 - 1 year ago
*lol the bells and what you said about the ending are good *smile. You know I'm a big perfectionist *laughs. In earnest. Thanks for your nice words. You made me very happy. It's also nice that you went to our profile and also listened to the second song. Greetings and have a nice weekend Manuela

Hi, Thank You. Thanks for your nice words. You're right. It's a different kind of music than usual here. But the news also says that this music is also popular here. I wish you a nice sunny weekend Manuela.

Description : This is a country/folk track in a genre I don't do much, so I thought I'd give it a go. It also has some instruments I don't use much, namely the banjo, mandolin and fiddle. I got the title from a movie I saw a few months ago. Hope you enjoy, Scott.

Description : I wanted to do something different like i do normaly. And I think that I was successful.
A -drum ´n chill folk song-. A kind of hippie music in colorful garb of the modern era.
At the end of the track there is a bonus.
Something in the way of bonfire music.

From an old Appalachian folk song. Done by request.

I'm okay with this song enough that I put it on my album, Closet Monkey.

Description : My Dad found his old 8-track recorder. I think he was going to ask me if I was interested, but I was already half way to my room with it and a new song forming in my head.
This track is more of a straight-forward folk song. The opening is completely recorded on the 8-track, so it's a bit more lo-fi. Then the track kind of opens up into a cleaner chorus. I hope you enjoy my little experiment.
