Poet with a Punk's Heart on LP

A bonfire romance of the 'Poet With A Punk's Heart' 'Oh, what a day, I will set it all on fire...' heralds Axel Wolph in the first line of 'Poet With A Punk's Heart', the titletrack of his brand-new solo-album. This time the ironically self-described 'romantic anarchist' passed on almost every unnecessary musical element except himself and a bunch of acoustic guitars. The result is an album as traditional and raw as a singer-songwriter record can be. After his succès d'estime with his critically acclaimed 'Wedding Songs' (#2 CMJ charts in Seattle, rotation on almost 90 radio stations in the USA,...) he now focuses on the real thing of a songwriter's life - the song itself. After compiling some private recordings of songs he had written during the last couple of months, he orginally wanted to produce them again by using old vinyl beats and his so-called 'multi-instrumentalist's overdubbing method' (that's what he's usually doing on stage - reproducing his tunes by playing and recording every single take live on stage), just like he did on 'Wedding Songs'. Listening to this very private song-compilation (even containing reinterpretations of some of his favorite coversongs) made him realize that this time this is all it takes. The result is his very first and pure singer-songwriter album. But this is not the only premiere in his career - for the first time he releases two coversongs on an official Axel Wolph album: 'Intervention' by The Arcade Fire and 'Johnny & Mary' by Robert Palmer. 'I love fooling around with other songwriters' babies, that's actually one of my favorite hobbies...' admits Axel. In times of technical perfection and almost unlimited production facilities the 29-year-old singer-songwriter and producer gave his 60s and 70s influence a go and reanimated the tradition of the probably most important era of pop music. 'The spirit of the 60s and 70s is settled in my soul, even though I was born in 79. To me it's the real spirit of music', says Axel and invites all 'romantic anarchists' out there to listen to and enjoy his brand new 'baby'. According to this the time has come to light up a bonfire somewhere out in the woods or on the beach or wherever you feel comfortable and listen to the brand-new songs of the 'Poet With A Punk's Heart' Axel Wolph.
