It’s almost here! Europa’s CD release concert is coming to Toronto in less than two weeks! Between now and then, we’re going to share some stories and behind-the-scenes tidbits about the process with you, so stay tuned!
KlezFactor’s Toronto lineup consists of Mike Anklewicz (sax/clarinet), Jarek Dabrowski (guitar), RJ Satchithanthan (bass), Noah Sherman (drums) and Georgia Hathaway (violin). We’ll also be joined by special guests Ekaterina (vocals) and Paul Georgiou (percussion), both of whom perform on Europa!
Of course, Europa was not possible without the Berlin-based band: Alex Bayer (bass), Florian von Frieling (guitar), Finlay Panter (drums) and Daniel Weltlinger (violin). We have to also acknowledge the huge contribution of Christian Betz, our intrepid engineer from Berlin Audio!
It’s been over a year since we got things rolling, launching our Indiegogo campaign, booking the venues and the place to record and, in late-July of 2015, doing the principal recording for the album.Since then, we’ve gotten the tracks back to Toronto where additional recording was done with Ekaterina, Paul and Jarek. Then it was the mixing stage which took a while but we’re now mastering with Chris Ledroit and the final album will be done in the nick of time!
If you’re in Toronto on July 5, please come out to Supermarket Restaurant and Bar (doors open at 7:30pm) and hear us play! The Supermarket is a fantastic venue in Kensington Market (268 Augusta Ave.) in a great neighbourhood in Toronto! Make an evening of it — explore the neighbourhood and then come out to hear KlezFactor and be the first to get your hands on Europa!
