German rock/metal opera musician, Steve Brockmann will release a new single from his new project, “BROCKMANN’S GUESTHOUZE” on FEBRUARY 5TH.
“I’ve decided to establish “Brockmann’s Guesthouze” as a home for single songs not slated for any of my current projects (like Vision of Choice) – I can record these when I feel like it, without any pressure, and with absolutely no stylistic boundaries. At the moment, I plan to enlist at least one surprise guest vocalist and/or instrumentalist.” Steve stated, “The first song to be released is called “Close to Me, Farther from You”, written with my long time writing partner, lyricist George Andrade. It was the last song that I wrote in 2020, and so it’s only fitting that it be the first I publish in (a hopefully better) 2021.“
Guests on this song are Napoli based, Italian vocalist Alessandro Granato (SirJoe Project, Stamina), who delivered a rich and energetic performance, and German session guitarist Mike Markwitz, who contributed a blistering guitar solo. “Close to Me, Farther from You” will be available for purchase on Bandcamp.
Steve Brockmann, born in 1965 in Kiel (near Hamburg) Germany, has played an active role in Northern Germany’s music scene since the early 1980s. Being the creative head of various bands, he has played gigs on many stages between Germany’s most popular holiday island Sylt (up in the very North) and the orchards of Lower Saxony. Amongst others, he has played support gigs for such rock legends as Uriah Heep, Moody Marsden Band, and Hawkwind. After having spent some time roaming the North and living out his own rock ’n’ roll movie, Steve has since “retired” from the road to mainly concentrate on composing original music for his various projects in his personal studio.
