Album Notes

Investigations in the tricky art of writing music

CLEEMANN is a Copenhagen / Chicago based one-man-project centered around singer, multi-instrumentalist and musical director Gunnar Cleemann – a Danish folk experimentalist prodigy of immense and uncontested talent.

With a great emphasis on harmonies, lush orchestration, and arrangements, Cleemanns songcraft reflect a low-voiced side of the D.I.Y. spirit.

Revealing vulnerability and spirit, his voice is entirely his own – clear, deep and vast as an ocean – a most remarkable instrument exuding its own ambient brilliance.

Live Cleemann performs solo-acoustic or in a band set up according to the nature of the venue. In live shows, he adapts musicians and delivery depending on the situation in order to be true to the moment. The audience picks up on the excitement that this is a one-of-a-kind performance that can’t be recreated. Rich in emotion from all ends of the spectrum, his live shows and music look to be vital, appealing and never the same twice.

In February 2011 Cleemann was approved by the USCIS receiving his 3-year 0-1 Artist Visa.

NEW RELEASE Spring 2013
In a planned triology the 2nd solo-album of Cleemann is a cross-ocean project between Chicago and Copenhagen. Album 'Different' containing 11 songs to be released in the US - vinyl with digital download

The Chicago based sessions are supported by team Chicago Acoustic Underground and founder Michael Teach.

45 Minutes Mostly About Caring 2009
The 10-song-cycle "45 Minutes Mostly About Caring", officially released September 2009, is a series of investigations and questions into the tricky art of writing music as well as into Cleemanns own self. Each song displays human emotions we inevitably know, accept, or conquer throughout our lifetime, representing personality-aspects in a manner of deep humanity.

Cleemann’s theory that these songs are mostly about caring is not too far fetched – it is clear this is about personal realizations. With a forward yet slower motion, this unique sound-scape – the subtle acoustic textures and analogue synths blending with electronic beats and loops – is born out of a passion for vintage instruments- and studio equipment.

>>Cleemann's music is about as unique and interesting as pop music comes. However you wish to classify the mystery that is Cleemann, it's hard to deny that there's something genius about his work.>There are two qualities I look for when judging pop music - catharsis and satisfaction - and Cleemann delivers both.>It is a triumphant display of one man conquering all aspects of the art of musicianship.>I know we had the best show in town last night.>Different>Independent>Ambitious – Spejderrobot Remix>2005>Princes of Denmark>Romantic>Ambitious>Optimistic>Romantic>Santa Claus lives (in Nebraska)>Absent Part 1>Righteous>Emphatic>Ambitious<<, airplay
