Playing with the ambiguities plaguing humanity itself, there is a song quite literally for any mood, with song titles reflecting the vast range of human emotion including “Indifferent,” “Stupid,” and “Generous.” With a passion for vintage instrumentation, lush orchestration, and cross-cultural references that connect Chicago with Copenhagen (including The Beat Generation and Monty Python), CLEEMANN adapts his delivery depending on the situation to create a one-of-a-kind performance that can’t be recreated. – Chicago Innerview Magazine
Powerfully amazing session on 2/24/14 with the great percussionist Jamey Haddad who was tracking on Ricardo Yogt’s song “A Sorte Com Bento!”. Also stopping in was Joanne Lawry, who is in town on tour with Sting, to give Jamey some support. Jamey is in town playing with Paul Simon and Sting 2/25 at The United Center. Great being able to work with these true professionals!!
Last October, Strobe Recording Studio was excited and honored to be part of a Daytrotter Session. You can hear The Lawrence Arms on Daytrotter at this link.
