The AK Project – A Thunderous Exchange of Silence
Solveig and I came up with a concept about what it would be like when people just don’t communicate but the silence when they saw each other would be deafening. Solveig was a master at writing melodies and creating lyrical stories and journeys. Her ability to write ‘in character’ was simply outstanding…her vocal delivery is incredible on this album and every album we did!
Solveig famously said in an interview….“I am so tired of being some soft pop artist, where my hair and nails are the focus…I am capable of so much in my song writing and performance – I want to push myself, and it is only now with my band The AK Project I have done just that, not only in terms of my lyrics but musically as well. I have never experienced the freedom to explore as I have on these releases, to express, to create and to honestly sing from the heart – this is truly and finally me, Solveig!”.
This was a definitive AK & SK collaboration from start to end, from the writing, recording, production, studio work…every facet. Solveig was a keen observer and a careful craftsmith of every detail…without her, this album would never have happened…it may say AK…but it is absolutely Solveig and her heart all the way! A beautiful collaboration The AK and SK Project!
