Wolf about the record: “It is a personal retrospective record, the album contains songs written in my youth and new songs that look back. While finishing my father died and that also colored the plate brightly. Musically it has become a kind of kraut-singer-song patchwork blanket.”

“A kraut-singer-song patchwork blanket?”. I have no clue what he means with
that. But I’m a sucker for the sound of words. Like with weird descriptions
of something/someone that just sound crazy, cool and cryptic.

Lead single THE HOG confirms what we already loved about his 2021 EP Songs Of Light And Shade. Vanwymeersh masters the art of writing smooth, instantly appealing songs
you can play any time of the day.

His crooner voice, the easy-listing construction of his compositions and its graceful orchestrations transfer you to a place where reality fades away and makes room for
sepia-colored memories. As I said before Wolf is a romantic at heart.

Here’s why…

Ps 1: Striking album artwork
Ps 2: Trust my ears, folks, ‘The Early Years
is pop nostalgia at his emotive best.
