  • New Single and video

    06. October 2014
    Six years ago we wrote the song “The Bravest Face”. Klaus wrote the lyrics about his nephew who fought with leukemia. A battle that he lost definitive last week. Before that we went in the studio to re-record "his" song as a little moral support in his ongoing fight. We did two versions. A full band version and an acoustic piano version. He heard the songs and liked and approved them. 
     
     
    This is our tribute to you, Daniel Skjoldborg Isaksen – The Bravest Face. 
     
    “The Bravest Face” will be released digitally with both versions of the song on October 20th.
     
    A video for the piano version can be seen here
     
    Earnings from the download sales will go directly to ‘Kræftens Bekæmpelse’ (the cancer foundation).
