Description

Julian Sas steps into 2005 with a brand-new album, a brand-new band and a brand-new sound. "Twilight Skies Of Life" is Julian's sixth studio album and a giant leap forward for the axe-man from the Dutch Delta, the 'Land van Maas en Waal', that part of the lowlands where rivers Maas and Waal (a branch of the Rhine) are trying to emulate their big sister Mississippi. Julian spent four weeks on "Twilight" in the studio with producer Jos Haagmans, who is best known for his work with multi-platinum Dutch-language bards Boudewijn de Groot and Frank Boeijen.

"My guitar always knows best what to do anyway," says Julian Sas, "but this is the first time I've been able to focus on being a singer". In the meantime the sound of the new album got heavier, muddier, fuller. That has a lot to do with the fact that ten years of experience led to a truly international four-piece. Pieter van Bogaert hails from Belgium and schleps an antique Hammond to the gigs. Drummer Pierre de Haard, despite his Greek moustache, resides in Weeze, Germany. The solid bass is in the hands of Tenny Tahamata, an exponent of the long musical tradition of the Moluccan islands.

The man Sas, his album and his band are still very much rooted in the power-blues they preached all over Europe in the hey-days of "Delivered". But today's bigger sound, grown during weeks and weeks of 'jamming', has the diversity that reflects Julian's eclectic taste. He buys 50 albums a month from southern rock to Americana and possesses probably more blues, more 'jamband' and more Grateful Dead records than anyone else in Europe. Rumour has it that Julian was able to recreate and play a Neil Young solo after watching him on TV with the sound off. Musical challenges and the drive to enrich their rock and blues dictionaries are the forces that will keep the Julian Sas Band on the road for the next ten years.

With the new songs and the synergy between the players the band more than ever enjoys being on stage and entertaining the crowds.

A no-nonsense approach: play till you drop! "That's Enough For Me", but not for Julian!
