Having gained experience in the punk rock bands Break of Day and Generation 84 and after a very inspiring trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountains, I started to write some personal songs in my bedroom. After finding the courage to pursue them further, I decided to make it a real project by the name of ‘Red Cloud’ and a first EP soon ensued. ‘Time is of the Essence’ was released in 2011 and it got some good reviews. Fast forward to 2014 and Red Cloud is ready to release its debut full length album ‘No one has promised us Tomorrow’, containing 10 songs about loving life, travelling and all the beauty nature has to offer, but also about suddenly losing good friends and the pain that caused. In many ways this new album is a coming of age for myself as a person, but also as a musician. So feel free to have a listen and share this process, my joy and my pain, and keep in mind: no one has promised us tomorrow, so carpe diem!
