Product Notes

Stef: Half past life songs Assuming I'll grow up to be a hundred years of age, this is the period, the second half of my life, yet to come. With the CD Autum Girl I'm trying to express how I've learned some things of love, women and how I entered my fifties. Although I'd like to think so, it's not much different from the things I've learnt in and around my twenties. The one thing that keeps amazing me is the many ways love can be encountered. I believe the songs on my CD Autumn Girl are a tribute to that feeling. Love to love! All arrangements by Alex Buurman & Rob Hoogkamer Special guests: Juan van Emmerloot, Niti Ranjan Biswas and Ruben Montes Recorded by Rob Rietveld, Alex Buurman & Arash Khosravipour at Alex Buurman Producties, Delft, Netherlands Mixed and mastered by Rob Rietveld at Robtix Communications Produced by Rob Rietveld & Alex Buurman Artwork & photography: Robtix Communications Coverpainting: Stef van Viegen Review: Autumn Girl - Half past life songs: Songs for the second half of life.The songs on the CD Autumn Girl, composed by Stef van Viegen tell the story of the search for love as the "second half of life" kicked in. Not so obvious anymore, but still full of desire and unreduced passion, as if you were twenty years old. Love presenting itself in many different forms but nevertheless exciting and challenging. Stef's lyrics are mainly about women he met, looked for, or presenting themselves. Not all encounters were as pleasant and often he ran into bitter dissappointments, but each and every encounter was beautiful. The songs are all typical from the heart of the world: Rotterdam. Where life is dynamic, but not always a ride in the park so you have to stand your ground to be able to tell your story from the heart. Born and living in Rotterdam since 1959, Stef van Viegen presents a powerful and personal statement without any abashment for the weaknesses of a questing man. Eleven pieces have been recorded and produced by Rob Rietveld and Alex Buurman. Alex is a professional keyboardplayer and arranger who has worked with a lot of famous Dutch artists. The CD also features Juan van Emmerloot who played with Snowy White, Steve Lukather and currently plays with Stef Burns. Also featuring on the final song on the CD is Niti Ranjan Biswas a master table player with amongst others Haripresad Chaurasia. In general the songs are Singer Songwriter oriented and mainly Rock influenced, but the arrangements by guitarist Rob Hoogkamer and Alex Buurman implement as light jazzy, fusion color to the content, providing exciting harmonies and playfull twists. All of this blends in beautifully with Stef's pure and edgy songs, aversed to double morals and restrictive conventions.
