"Northeim | Goldmine"

Dennis Kolen is a young singer/songwriter from Rotterdam/The Netherlands. People from this small country are traditionally notorious for being adept travellers. Wherever Fate places them – on the ocean-going vessels of old or their modern mobile home counterparts – they are courageous people. Dennis Kolen had the courage to believe in Stockfisch, and that‘s why he found the Northeim gold mine.

Listen to the great harmony vocals on this SACD! This singularly expressive voice belongs to a man who fears not the great ones, the likes of the Beatles or Joni Mitchell. He simply reaches out for what all great artists pass on. This Northeim gold mine has musical gold on offer profusely – musical pearls on a string.
