Pormes, Simone : This Heart of Mine
After writing 'The princess Project' Simone hasn't been sitting still. Recently she approached different musicians to work with her on composing music for her solo CD: Karel Boehlee, Martijn van Iterson, Arnold van Dongen, Dimitris Dimadis, and Lo van Gorp. The outcome of these cross-pollinations is a reflection of the many facets which characterizes this singer/songwriter. The songs offer a diversity in atmospheres, which will yet be experienced as one whole. From pop-like guitar songs like 'Dedication' to an interpretation of the Jobim composition 'O que tinha de ser', the CD offers a wonderful musical portrait of this very talented lady. Contrary to 'The Princess Project', this CD has been recorded over a very short period of time, because Simone has had de perfectly casted musicians record their performances simultaneously, which has lead to a very intimate and honest atmosphere. These top musicians turned out to be the ideal combination for the fulfilment of her musical ideas.
