About the band and music:
The Bathing In Cold Water LP and their music videos were all recorded live in Copenhagen, recorded and mixed by Lars Heiberg Andersen and mastered at Kasablanka Mastering in Paris, France. It features an all star cast of musicians from Copenhagen. The album represents Richard and his band in a live and a studio setting, raw, groovy, charismatic and most of all, real!
Featured on the album and in a live setting are Lars Emil Riis Madsen (Sahra Da Silva, We Go Where We Go, Hogo Fogo), Spencer Gross(Twang, We Go Where We Go, Something at Play, Hogo Fogo) and Lars Heiberg Andersen(Trainman Blues, All My Exes, Space Dudes, Blues Overdrive)
This coming together of musicians is not only musically beautifully, it is all built on friendship. These guys are totally in awe of each other, so come watch the band and their joyful playfulness…
