"SONGS & WHISPERS"

The international music network "SONGS & WHISPERS" present the fourth CIRCUIT of 2012.
The Portuguese band A Jigsaw will tour togerther with Sleepwalker's Station across north-west Europe.

Information about the artists:

A Jigsaw (Coimbra, PO)
http://www.ajigsaw.net
A Jigsaw is Portuguese Indie-Folk band consisting of the three multi-instrumentalists musicians Joao Rui, Susana Ribeiro and Jorri.
The band is named after the Belgium band dEUS song “Jigsaw You”.
In 2007 they released a concept album called Letters From The Boatman. A handful of guests, including some of the most prominent musicians of the Portuguese scene, took part of this project. The album climbed the charts on national radios, it was considered one of the best of the year and the band was also reviewed as one of the best live acts.
As to the second album, they decided to take matter into their own hands and gather some of the instruments they had met along the way. The result was a beautifully textured album with detailed arrangements. Like the Wolf is a return to the concept album format. The record has two mesmerizing duets with Arizona’s Becky Lee Walters and Joao Rui. Like The Wolf was considered by the European media as an “irresistible”, a “compulsory” and an “addictive” album. Many say it was the best album of the year 2009.
In February of 2010 they released the deluxe edition Like The Wolf Uncut and began their Like The Wolf European Tour that took them to 12 countries, such as France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Slovenia, Poland, United Kingdom, Austria, Germany, Spain, etc. Still in 2010, the duet “Return to Me” featuring Becky Lee Walters received an honorable mention from the International Songwriting Competition (USA/2009) and of the Think Tank (Italy).
This trio returned with their much anticipated third album “Drunken Sailors & Happy Pirates” released November of 2011, that will be presented live in April of 2012 during the European Tour of CIRCUIT 04/2012.

Influences: Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Johhny Cash, & all arts & crafts

Are they a new wave country band? A traditional folk unit? Or a clever indie combo who dwell somewhere in the middle of both? Yes, yes they are. They’re all those things and so much more. Excuse me; the “quiet time” is calling - Tim Mass Movement (UK)

Sleepwalker’s Station (IT)
http://www.myspace.com/sleepwalkerstation
Sleepwalker's station is the story of over a decade’s band history. The music grew around singer songwriter Daniel zur Nieden through the sophisticated touch by some great and brilliant fellow musicians making up the band.
Sleepwalker’s station came to life in 1998 from the womb of the grunge era but increasingly evolved into more acoustic shapes and slowly absorbing all kinds of different influences from mainly folk but also various colours from jazz, trip hop, soul, emo and classical music though keeping its original indie "soul".
Since then the line up and home base of the band has changed various times and by now has constitutes a concept not a band in a traditional frame but rather a network of brilliant musicians scattered across Europe linked by their common passion and the songs, written, performed and rewritten together.
And while the music can be described as guitar and piano based, the cello has always played an important role in characterizing and emphasizing the band's sound. Through the percussion joining in, the sound of the band experienced an up-beat "rythmization" allowing wider differentiated song writing.

Influences: The Counting Crows, Dave Mathews Band, Nick Drake, Neil Young, Death Cab For Cutie, Dakota Suite, Bruce Springsteen, Van Morrison, Damien Rice, Tom Petty, Ben Harper, Mark Knopfler, The John Butler Trio, Red House Painters

Since January 2009 “Songs & Whispers”-concerts take place every month in different venues around Bremen. International and local artists are fascinating a growing audience in special venues like historical cinemas, theatres and cozy bars. The musicians’ genres vary from Alternative Folk, Alternative Country to Americana, Bluegrass or Singer-Songwriter. The atmosphere of the concerts is changing with the choice of venues and lives from the artists’ interaction with the audience. An important characteristic of Songs & Whispers is that most concerts are played acoustic or semi-acoustic.

Songs & Whispers is aiming at creating a worldwide network of musicians and an exchange of ideas from different artists and nations. We are presenting a selection of international artists and local supports every month. Furthermore we try to be a platform for other musical organisations like schools of music in letting them perform in our supporting program.
There are also special concerts like an open air concert in July 2009 or different school concerts that already took place. In the future there will be an Australia alive – Special in October and a Songs & Whispers tour in the UK in November.
