T.A.C.E. Project is the international music project founded in 2012 by the Polish guitarist Andrzej Citowicz (currently based in Egypt) and the multi-instrumentalist and producer Dirk Arnicke (Germany). Influenced by rock music from the late ‘70s to the ‘90s, they created their own, guitar-oriented sound. Together with the Polish bass player Patryk Szymanski and the German singer Oliver Monsieur, they released an EP titled ‘Jack Of Hearts’ in early 2015. The project was put on hold in June 2015. Now, with the addition of Mike Gerhold, on vocals, T.A.C.E. is back! The current line-up of T.A.C.E. Project is:
Mike Gerhold – vocals
Dirk Arnicke – drums, keys, production
Patryk Szymanski – bass / acoustic guitar
Andrzej Citowicz – guitars
Born in Wolfhagen, Germany, in 1975, the singer Mike Gerhold is a well-known representative of the North Hesse music scene. He has more than twenty years of stage experience under his belt, having earned his chops in German bands such as Rockhead as well as solo. He also opened the concerts for big Rock and Metal acts, ranging from the Sweet and Slade to Doro Pesch and Saxon. In recent years, he contributed background vocals to Bonfire’s 2017 release ‘Byte The Bullet’ alongside the Italian singer, keyboard player and producer Alessandro Del Vecchio.
With Gerhold on board, the musicians started working on their new album. Few months ago T.AC.E. Project released first two singles (“You made my day” and “Come into my bed”). Singles were played in German and Polish radio stations. After 6 months of work T.A.C.E. Project prepared 10 songs and decided to release their album “Time Traveller” on October 10th, 2018 on digital platforms like iTunes, Amazon or Spotify.
It’s hard to believe that such rock songs with real heart and soul have been recorded by four musicians who have never had the opportunity to meet in real life. Andrzej, Dirk, Patryk and Mike created the music together, milions of miles away from each other. They have recorded tracks separately in their home studios and later they used internet like a medium between them. Out of their work came to life pure rock music with heart and soul. The style of their songs reminds of the music the of 70s, 80s and 90s.
