FEATURED: Floris Kappeyne Solo

"Half of What I Say is Meaningless"

From the liner notes of the album that Floris wrote personally:

"...During the darkest months of last winter, I descended into a darker state like many people around me. It felt like I had been confronted with the very real toll that the pandemic is taking on the mental health of many.

I decided to set out on a journey on foot from my home in Amsterdam to a recording studio near the border with Germany to record an album of fully improvised music to reflect on this moment in my life..."
