In many ways, the sixth studio album by Timothy Showalter aka Strand Of Oaks is a turning point for him in many ways. It's a personal confrontation with his own demons on one side and a huge step forward in terms of quality and songwriting on the other. 'Weird Ways' is the six-minute long opening epos and it's without any doubt one of 2019's most beautiful songs. For us, the songwriter recalls the story behind it in his own words.
The ongoing climate crisis can leave you numb and disillusioned from time to time. Instead of waiting for a miracle to happen or getting way too cynical it might be best to simply start doing little changes in your everyday life. Taking action is one aspect, redefining our relationship with nature in general is a whole different one. Acclaimed musician Martin Kohlstedt is fighting for exactly that and NBHAP head Norman spoke with him about his ambitious yet very pragmatic plan and how we all can learn something from it.
