Kaiser, Henry / Damon Smith

Kaiser, Henry / Damon Smith: Relations (Balance Point Acoustics)

Label: Balance Point Acoustics    
Released in: USA    

"My third or fourth improv concert was with Henry. We started playing a ton after that and slowly started developing this acoustic duo music. It must have started settling in around 1998 because I remember it being strongly connected to this 7 string guitar. When planning his first trip to Houston to play I asked him very nicely if he could please bring that guitar. He did, and we made this album in an intense studio session that should yield two more strong releases in the future.

It has been incredible to be able to work closely with Henry for the last 20 years. This is the duo album I always wanted to make with Him."-Damon Smith, Balance Point Acoustic
