Interview with Kurt Frei

Interview with Kurt Frei, 19.08.2012

Leadvocalist from the Two Rocks Band / Swiss Country Award Winner 2012

How did you choose the Name Two Rocks Band?

The Birth of Two Rocks Band goes back to the year 2001. Daniel Spreiter and me played Guitar togehter. We thought , that somehow we needed to get a name for what we are, what we do. We come from rock music, so we chose the name Zwei Rocks. But that didn’t sound good in our ears, so we changed it to Two Rocks.

I have heard that you are working on the second CD, what can the Countryfan expect?

The Countryfan can expect a whole CD of my own compositions. The first CD “Memory Train” has three cover songs on it, I don’t really want that anymore. I want the listener to actually hear the Two Rocks Band own things.

Which style will be heard on the CD? Rather rocky, as your name suggests, or also traditional country and ballads?

I would like to have a bit of everything, but more traditional country and also some ballads. There won’t be many Rock songs.

Where do you get the inspirations for the songs?

I surf pretty much in U-tube, which nowdays almost everyone is doing. I think it's a good site to get an inspiration. From there I may get a melody in my head. The lyrics consist of my own experiences, not something invented, but really something that I want to tell about my life.

Your English is very good, so to speak without an accent, and your grammar is also correct, why is that?

I think it's a bit of a routine when I sing, since I do that for more than 10 years now. It certainly had an influence that I had a partner who was born in England. This has helped in any case with the grammar. The accent-free pronunciation comes from practice and more practice, which gives routine.

But you have more the american english.

When singing yes, but when talking, it is more the british accent.

What are the goals of the Two Rocks Band? Are you also planning to go abroad?

The goals are, that we certainly also have performances abroad. We've been to Germany and were allowed to play in the well-known Four Corners Music Hall. We were also in Austria, we had to do with the ACMF, the Austrian Country Music Federation, have also played there. The goal is that we can go even further away, I even have dreams to be on stage in Nashville.

What are your own goals?

My goals are, that at some point it can be said that Two Rocks Band has a status, even in Nashville. That would be a great goal. I do not mean to sound arrogant, I am a person who always sets very high goals. Whether I reach them or not, is another matter, but I can say with a clear conscience, I have done everything in order to achieve this goal.

Tell us something about Kurt Frei, what kind of person is he?

Kurt Frei is someone that does a lot, sometimes almost too much. I have a 100% job at the electricity plant in Murg and I give 100% to the music and my Band. It takes a lot of strengt in order to bring both under one roof. That's me, I just want to do everything that I live for.

What does the winning of the Swiss Country Music Award mean to Two Rocks Band?

Me and my Band are very proud to have won the Swiss Country Music Award 2012, the certificate will always have a place of honor. It also was surprising for us, that radio stations and other significant people from the States became aware of us. It shows us that the Swiss Country Award can be an important showcase for the Swiss country music scene. It was long overdue that someone had the courage to put such an award on its feet. Therefore, praise to the organizer Andreas Wüthrich. I also hope that the award was not a one time thing. Everyone should pull together now and keep the Swiss Country Awards alive.

What else would you like to tell the people, something that is important to you and your Band?

We really appreciate how the fans, that we have won in these eleven years, visit us again and again, no matter where we have our performances. So, a big thank you to all those who are always on the Two Rocks concerts.

The duet “Mexican Angel” a classic country tune was written by Liz Anderson and Lynn. Liz Anderson one of country music’s most successful female song writers and nominated country recording artist has written hits for Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Tammy Wynette, and Lorrie Morgan. Liz had the opportunity to hear CERRITO and Lynn sing the song prior to her passing on October 28th, 2011.

CERRITO’S latest album CERRITO y Las Chicas de Country (CERRITO and The Girls of Country) is the first country album to feature a collection of english and spanish duets with some of country’s favorite Chicas. Lynn Anderson, Lane Brody, Janie Fricke, Elizabeth Cook, Jett Williams, Moore & Moore, Liza Martin, Kathie Baille and CERRITO’S sister Sallyann all make appearances on the

Hörbuch Rauchende Colts – Kojoten Am Rio Grande

Hörbuch Rauchende Colts – Kojoten Am Rio Grande

Alles was man sieht, wird alleine durch das flackernde Licht der Flammen eines Lagerfeuers beleuchtet. Alles was man hört, ist das Knistern des Holzes und die tiefe Stimme eines Mannes. Er hat viel erlebt und ist bereit den gespannten Zuhörern von seinen Abenteuern zu erzählen. Dieses Bild kommt einem sofort in den Kopf, wenn der Erzähler Thomas „Al“ Wolfson (gesprochen von Jürgen Fritsche) im Hörbuch „Rauchende Colts – Kojoten am Grande Rio“, geschrieben von Dirk Bongardt, sein Erlebtes mit uns teilt. Es ist der erste Teil einer Serie von Westerngeschichten über Thomas Wolfson, die aber in sich geschlossen sind und dadurch auch ohne Probleme einzeln gehört werden können. 
 
Die detaillierten Schilderungen der Umgebung, der Geräusche die Thomas wahrnimmt und Gefühle die er hat, führen dazu, dass man ohne Schwierigkeiten zuhören kann und seine Geschichte miterlebt. Man reitet fast selbst durch die dunkle Nacht. Die Vorgeschichte ist typisch: Thomas hat angeblich jemanden umgebracht, ist aber unschuldig. Da er damit rechnet hingerichtet zu werden, flieht er aus dem Gefängnis und verletzt dabei den Bruder des Sheriffs, der Grund, warum er erst recht nicht mehr damit rechnet, einen fairen Prozess zu bekommen. Ohne seine Liebe Elisa, die im Dorf bleibt, weil sie dort ihren Platz sieht, reitet er auf seinem Pferd Tyler los und versucht seinem Schicksal zu entfliehen.

Er sucht keinen Streit, gerät aber immer wieder in Situationen, die ihn dazu nötigen seine Waffe zu ziehen. Es kommt dazu, dass er Oskar, dem Barbier und Zahnarzt aus der Stadt, der ihn suchen und zurückzubringen soll, in einer riskanten Situation mit Kopfgeldjägern beobachtet, und bevor Oskar diesen zum Opfer fällt, schreitet er ein. Fortan erleben die beiden die nächsten Stunden gemeinsam und treffen auf Indianer, die sich an den Kopfgeldjägern rächen und die Schädel ihrer ermordeten Stammesmitglieder zurückholen wollen, um sie den Ritualen entsprechend beerdigen zu können. Das Aufeinandertreffen der drei Gruppen ist der Höhepunkt der ganzen Geschichte und muss selbst erlebt werden. Verraten werden kann, dass es spannend ist und ob Thomas mit Oskar zurück ins Dorf muss, entscheidet sich erst zum Schluss. 

Die einzelnen Stimmen der anderen Akteure sind genauso passend wie Thomas eigene und machen das Gehörte erst richtig authentisch. Für jeden Westernfan ist das Hörbuch eine hervorragend verpackte Geschichte, die man sich vor allem abends im Dunkeln anhören kann.

ALMA SIBLEY - MY PLACE IN NASHVILLE TENNESSEE


 
ALMA SIBLEY - MY PLACE IN NASHVILLE TENNESSEE
 
 
What makes this release so different from most new releases these days in country music, is The is real country music, as it was meant to be. Producer Doc Holiday with the help of his "A" team of studio musicians were able to capture that true traditional country music sound. The Artist ALMA SIBLEY hails from Saskatoon, Canada but don't let that geographic location fool you, THIS IS TRADITIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC, and this young lady is as traditional as Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline and all the rest of the legendary female country singers that set the bar for all those who followed. This song "MY PLACE IN NASHVILLE TENNESSEE" Tells the story of a country singer that is going to make it in Nashville but make it as they did years ago, The Real Way. The production is traditional but has a modern flavor But still remains traditional, kept that way by the outstanding steel guitar licks of none other that Pat Severs, current steel guitar player for the Grand Ole Opry as well as founding member of the Grammy winning Group "Pirates Of The Mississippi" and then add to that he was with the legendary Sliver Fox Charlie Rich for years. So for all those thousands of fans still yearning for real country music, the answer is ALMA SIBLEY, and don't miss the B side of this single release "SOMEDAY BABY" once again brilliant traditional country singing coupled with excellent traditional production. Check out the music video filmed in the studio while recording "MY PLACE IN TENNESSEE" on YouTube http://youtu.be/wXSpi6mC808
