WAVES are rolling in !

WAVES – by Ronn van Etten

A new wave running in …. again a new album by Ronn van Etten! And again packed with original material, this double-album in tasteful white/black/red design : WAVES.

Ronn van Etten (Voorburg – ’55) is a self-made musician, who has played from age of 12 in bands and been writing his own compositions. He played in a local
sympho-rock band Balloon and in local pop bands like Flirt, Muskie en Prints.
He performs with several temporal formations or duo’s, like with Rudy Bennet from the Motions. Earlier several albums were released in Dutch and English (like his 2CD album “All Sorts … One Guy” and “Shades of Blue’s”) and he put out an artsy video-album with Dutch songs. His latest album (Dutch again) was released in 2017 and 25% of its retail price this album “Een Leven Lang Liedjes” is donated to KIKA.

So now again an album with English material. WAVES is a double-album. The first CD –Now- has songs that were recently recorded, though some composed long ago and some written in the past years.
The album again has a great style-diversity. The opening song “Sometimes a good cry” is a soft, comforting, country-ish ballad, while the second song “See ourselves” is a firm pop-rock song is with 4 different key-measures. After the poppy “You wouldn’t listen” the next song is the Steely Dan inspired “Steal time” with some fusion and jazzy influences. The acoustic “Bow your head” is a tribute to 4 may (liberation day in Holland) and pays respect to freedom and is followed by the beautiful pop waltz “I love you”. “Get your point of view” is a firm rock song, while the song “Fear” has some spooky pieces and is about the fear a lot of people give to each one in conversation or on social media. This album again has again an instrumental track (“Snow”) with much guitar. Two pop ballads “Gone too far” en “Everything has gone away” en two up tempo pop songs “(This way) we can’t go on” and “You wakened up a feeling” complete the CD - Now.
The second/bonus CD -Then- has recordings of bands, Ronn van Etten played with in the past, when performing original compositions : Balloon (1974), Flirt in two line ups (1977 en 1986), Prints (1982).

WAVES gives a lot of pleasure in listening and for those interested all lyrics have been printed beautifully on a posterfold, that comes with the CDs.

Ronn ‘van Etten already has some new recordings and new songs for his next production, but we’ll have to wait a little. Doesn’t matter … we have enough for now to listen to with this double album. The album is for sale at gigs of course, but you can also order through his website : www.ronnvanetten.nl, or with a message on his Facebook-page, or through mail : ronnvanetten@hotmail.com .
The CD is only €10,= for this double album, excl. shipping costs.
