Once upon a time there was a singer from a far-off country who was fair of face and sang with the voice of an angel. Her name was Newcomer, although she possessed a rich store of artistic experience.
The master troubadours of Stockfisch heard of this wonderful songstress, and because in a fairy-tale nothing is impossible, they waved their wands and whisked her over the wide, wide ocean to ultimately land in the fabled acoustic cavern of Northeim.

Roughly 10 years after his success with “Just Like Love” the singer & composer Steve Strauss now presents his new album: “Sea of Dreams”.

• Paul Stephenson – "Girl With A Mirror"
"Girl With A Mirror" - In the mirror of the mermaid-like beauty of the girl featured in the album cover we just read one word: Masterpiece.
While Stephenson’s earlier works exude the excitement of “something’s gonna happen”, the sweet bird of youth is “on the way to Santiago” – since then, life seems to have taken the artist on the long and rocky road. In the same way, "Girl With A Mirror" is darker; more composed, and more reflective – but hope does not desert us.Details SFR 357.4069.2 (17,50 EUR+deliv)
• Carl Cleves & Parissa Bouas – "Halos 'Round the Moon"
The English word “Halo” can refer to the luminous circle surrounding the moon, but also the radiance traditionally depicted in art as the halo of a saint.
The music of Carl and Parissa bears witness to how music can be an opposite pole to facets of human life such as death, sadness, loss and transitoriness – harmony with nature being the prerequisite.Details SFR 357.4081.2 (17,50 EUR+deliv.)

• Sara K. - In The Groove
The vinyl-LP normally has two sides – and Sara K. presents two sides of her musical artistry!
On the one side we have her impressive and very convincing (solo) live concerts, where she fascinates her audience solely with her unique voice and her almost fragile-sounding accompaniment on the 4-string guitar. On the other side there are her beautiful studio recordings, where a whole range of musicians complement her pieces with an endless palette of musical styles, instruments and ideas. We want to document these two sides of her work on the 2nd release from the new Stockfisch “in the groove” series.Details SFR 357.8011.1 (25,50 EUR+deliv.)
