It is a Time To Stand against stupidity, greed, racism, capitalism….”

German rock musician and composer Steve Brockmann will release his upcoming solo album on April 2nd 2016 independently. This will be Steve‘s third solo album, entitled “3”, a peaceful and beautiful instrumental one, explained as follows: “This album is dealing to a large degree with memories, saying goodbye, and letting go … maybe that’s the reason why so many of the songs fade out in the end.”
Steve has recently revealed the cover artwork and track listing of his “3” album, which can be seen below.
“This album was not planned at all,” commented Steve about the making of this album, “I had been working on two other albums – the southern rock ’n’ roll project Granny Smokes and the heavy metal project Vision of Choice – when the circumstances of certain events intervened and affected my life, altering my plans. First, sadly, my mother passed away in September 2014, and in the ensuing months I simply did not have the power nor the motivation to continue working on any of my music projects … although I did eventually record two little instrumental pieces to come to terms with her leaving and express my feelings of loss: “Hope and Sadness” & “The Inner Reaches”.
Then came the injuries to my hands in the first half of 2015: I hurt my right trigger finger in January and my left little finger in May, which ultimately meant not playing any music at all (or rather playing in a very restricted manner with considerable pain) for 6 months!
By June I could play the piano and guitar again without any pain which gave me a much needed resurgence of energy as my musical ideas and creativity seemed to overflow; in a very short time I finished some new tracks which I uploaded to Reverbnation and YouTube.
Again, I had never planned any of these recordings as material for a new instrumental album … but as September rolled around, I couldn’t help but notice how many new songs I had already recorded … and so I decided to do a few more in the same vein and indeed make an album out of them!
Since this album is the direct successor to Don’t Sing! and Expected Errors it is simply called 3 – I chose to make the original working title, “Pools Under Ganymede”, the title of the first track.”
Steve Brockmann’s “3” album track listing as follows:

10. Hope And Sadness
