For the third edition of the Stockfisch Vinyl Vinyl Collection, titles were selected from their current program, which sound particularly well on the vinyl format: deep-sounding, smooth and transparent timbre characterize the 10 pieces on Vol.3.
Among them are "good old friends" such as Allan Taylor or Steve Strauss - but also Günter Pauler's new discoveries for Stockfisch like Carrie Newcomer from Indiana, Kerstin Blodig from Norway or the Anglo-Irish band Ranagri.
Stockfisch is particularly proud and happy to welcome the famous American singer-songwriter Carrie Newcomer to the fold. Her rich velvety voice and heartfelt songs captivate audiences world-wide. The Norwegian singer/songwriter/guitarist Kerstin Blodig presents her debut-album on Stockfisch. The recordings took place in a clearing in one of Germanys largest forest areas - in Solling. The rich natural atmosphere - including birdsong & sounds from the vegetation - fits wonderfully to Kerstins haunting Norwegian songs and soulful acoustic-guitar playing.
Four London musicians; one traditional Irish player, two classically trained, and one blues singer and guitarist, all with a passion for folk music. This quartet named Ranagri sound like a precious, unspoiled spot of beauty the Irish village of Ranagri that gave the band its name.
Allan Taylor sings a very introspective song from his latest album "All Is One". New York based Steve Strauss introduces his third album and the Stockfisch-Stars David Munyon and Paul O'Brien are represented with excerpts from their latest albums.
