Wojtek Szadkowski, a highly acclaimed musician (Collage, Peter Pan) and a leader of one of the art/prog rock bands – Satellite, returns with a new fascinating project – Strawberry Fields. The band’s debut album entitled “Rivers Gone Dry” will be released by Metal Mind Productions on 26th January 2009 in Europe and 10th March 2009 in USA (via MVD). The band revealed the cover artwork for the album, you can see it on the left.
Strawberry Fields’ music is a strange blend of the old and the new, of rock guitars and soft keyboards, loops and psychedelic soundscapes. But what is most important here is the magical voice of Robin (Marta Kniewska), a beautiful female lead singer. On the band’s debut album entitled “Rivers Gone Dry” Marta is supported by the intelligent guitar play of Sarhan Kubeisi (Satellite), simple yet effective bass lines of Jarek Michalski (Satellite), and Wojtek Szadkowski‘s drums. Guest appearance was done by keyboardist Krzyś Palczewski (Satellite). It’s a perfect album for the lovers of such bands as Goldfrapp, Portishead or Massive Attack. Marta’s voice will also satisfy fans of Anneke van Giersbergen (The Gathering / Agua De Annique).
