RPWL Solo Projects:
BLIND EGO &
Kalle plays guitar in RPWL and he does some backing vocals. His fluid play is absolute influencend by
Sir David Gilmour and his solo's are truly amazing. But he's able to play some more heavier lines aswell and that makes him to one of my favourite guitar hero's.
He played in:
an astonishing new project with ex-members of Arena and IQ.
Hidden Timbre, a band which was fronted by beautiful leadsinger and Kalles's ex-wife, Anja. But she has left the band in 2009.
Kalle plays nowadays also in this Austrian rock-pop band from his new girlfriend ("A Handful of Songs" in '09 and live
(and i must confess this girl has a beautiful voice, really great singer songwriter stuff, and
live a pleasure! Please check them out on
Came was founded by Carmen Maier and Matthi Kadoff.
Carmen did session for Yogi Lang ("Decoder" '10) and she will
be joining him on his tour aswell.
Chris is the bass player of the RPWL and was an original member. He left the band for a couple of years, but happily he's back, always solid, always in for a yoke and
i think he's responsible for some great sounds in the rpwl team.
Violit DistrictHi Nick,
yes I am working on my Solo Project which is called "Parzivals Eye" (PE) The album title is "Fragments".
After writing so many RPWL Songs I thought it is time to share a few personal things with the people.
So I was able to get a few very nice musicans for this project.
I have Christina from MAGENTA and Alan Reed from PALLAS as singers and Ian Bairnson from ALAN PARSONS as a guitarist on the Album.
(And a few more interseting friends).
We have finished the recording so far and we will release the album in Sept 09.
Best wishes and looking forward to meet you in NL.
Alan Reed (Pallas) - vocals
A new project of Chris with;
Ian Bairnson (Alan Parsons) - guitars,
Christina Booth (Magenta) - vocals,
Hannas Weigend - drums &
Ossi Schaller - guitars (he played with Ian at Marajan ('91-'94)&
Chris Postle - bass, keys, mellotron guitars and backing vocals.
Please check out his myspace site and be flabbergasted. The songs sounds really suberp. Listen to "Wide World", amazing isn't?
And if you're there, check out Chris Postl Page to: "Chicago", it's the last song on the player. Christinas voice is again powerful and moody and the guitar solo of Ian Bairnson is fabulous.
You can find an other version of this David Crosby cover at David Gilmours page.... ;-)
But this version with Christina and Ian with a leading role is suberp too.
Nice smooth songs that will remind you of Genesis (Trick of the Tail), the Beatles, Beach Boys, but also some links to the Alan Parsons
Project. And that's not alone because of the presents of Mr Ian Bairnson. But the link to RPWL, Blind Ego and Floyd isn't far away.
And yes you can hear Chris does a long time job in, with RPWL, but he gives his own twist to these gentle songs.
Christina does an excelent job with her golden voice (listen to "Disguise"). She really can grap you. Who knows Alan Reed of Pallas know that he's has a very
pleasant way of singing. Chris himself sings a few songs too and his voice fits very will in the atmospheres he creates.
Ian is absolute in form with his remarkable licks (listen to "Longings Ends" or "Skylights").
"Longings End" is another songs that belongs to the highlights of this album, it grows, it's excited and it cointains some fabulous steel guitar work.
I really enjoyd this soft rock songs with a lot of layers thru the headphones, there are so many things to explore. Really a new
big star from the RPWL family.
8++ out of 10.
Chicago was always one of my favorite songs over the last years. I worked with a few friends of mine in a crosby stills nash tribute band and this
song was always to high for me to sing. So I sent the playbacks to Tina and we really worked intensive on vocals in the studio....but it was much fun..
Chicago has something serious but also something forgiving in the melody. And "we can change" was quite up to date in the US.

So now and then special things happen. Like a performance with a all star Freising tribute band July 2010:
