Right from the beginning of our journey, so many good things happened to Cluttered Clarity. All our achievements were based on the help, trust, and support of friends – old and new ones – family, teachers, politicians, and so many more. While the song “Follow Your Dreams” initially was meant to raise awareness of high college tuition and its problematic in the US, the meaning of these three words has become so much more. “Follow“Follow Your Dreams” stands for believing in yourself and your project. It stands for being courageous and taking the step into the unknown. Every single one of these steps has been quite an adventure, which would have been impossible but for the support of so many trusting people along the way. A festival promoter accepted a two-month late application, based on a song recorded on a cheap device at the basement of Berklee College of music. A US ambassador offered us a grant to cover our flight tickets without hearing a single note of our music. A Berklee employee liked our spirit and hooked us up with the Montreux Jazz Festival; he only knew one of our songs, which also was our only song at that time. Teachers and instrument manufacturers supported us with all the needed instruments for our tour, even though the band didn’t feature a single well-known musician. A Luxembourg ambassador in Africa accidentally heard about our project and introduced us to several organizations that offered us funds for this very recording. A convenience store owner put a note with our website on the pastry of one of her customers who works for a TV station. I guess the customer didn’t eat the paper because he invited us to appear on national broadcast. This page would be too small, if I keep on writing about all the funny, odd, and crazy encounters that made the past two years unforgettable. I hope that by listening to the tracks you will feel the love, help, and support of all the people that made Cluttered Clarity and this recording possible.
