With all audiophile music lovers in mind, Simone Kopmajer presents DAYDREAMING, a remarkable and intimate new EP recorded in 32bit/192kHz PCM, analog mixed & mastered by Martin Kreiner.
The album includes brand-new original material in a smooth and relaxing jazzy mood as well as cover songs like Aretha Franklin’s “Day Dreaming”, Merle Haggard’s “Crazy Moon” and Pat Metheny’s masterpiece “Travels” in the vocal version “Travelling to You”. The original songs on DAYDREAMING are the result of Simone’s long-time and fruitful song writing collaboration with lyricist Karolin Tuerk. As a premiere, however, S.K. has brought out the pianist in herself and played all piano parts on this recording.
