“When all currents suddenly appear in a different direction to go on than you can keep your own stiff target or chasing you decide to catch the wind and thermals you can cruise to the unknown … ‘. The latter is exactly what Fridolin Line has done. The songs she wrote during this period resulted in the album Catching Currents which comes out October 30 on V2 Records. A cinematic album that the boundaries between dreamy folk, electronica, jazz, singer / songwriter and broken beats blurs and merges into catchy songs.
In 2011 Fridolin Line brings with her band Finn Silver debut Crossing the Rubicon off. The album is a success in the Netherlands and Japan, and performances at leading festivals such as the North Sea Jazz Festival and Billboard Live Tokyo follow. iTunes Finn Silver calls that year to Breakthrough Jazz Artist. Besides Finn Silver Line makes Fridolin member of Ladies of the Lowlands, she toured internationally with the British jazz band Kairos 4tet and leads monthly vocal sessions in the North Sea Jazz Club in Amsterdam.
It was 2013 when Fridolin Line again start writing. She gets in touch with songwriters Danny Fisher and Dave Austin and writes them on the idyllic British countryside the majority of its songs. With a top band consisting of drummer Richard Spaven (Jose James, Flying Lotus), keyboardist Grant Windsor (Gregory Porter, Jose James), Danny Fisher and David Austin on acoustic guitar and Alex Bonfanti at (synth) bass Fridolin Line takes her new songs in the Aviary Studio in London. In Berlin, the vocals are recorded and the album with Axel Reinemer been mixed in his Jazzanova Recording Studio.
