New CD from our favorite Horn Star

Katja's "Never Stand Still" out Now!

posted by Mike Walton

SMILER's favorite Horn Star the very talented and attractive sax player in Rod's band Katja Rieckermann has released a brand new CD.

"Never Stand Still" is the title of Katja's 3rd studio album. Produced by Grammy nominated producer Jeff Carruthers and Katja Rieckermann.

The idea for "Never Stand Still" was born in January 2014 during a lunch with producer Jeff Carruthers. The vision was to create an instrumental version of Amy Winehouse's "Rehab", basically 70s music inspired by artists like The Temptations, Sam Cooke and Jr. Walker and the AllStars.

Within the following 2 months Katja and Jeff ended up writing 11 tunes. "Ideas just kept coming at me" says Katja, which she then took to Jeff and he polished them.

The next step was an Indiegogo campaign to help raise funds for the making of the CD which was very successful and made it possible for Katja and Jeff to take some of LA's best musicians to the some of the best studios in Los Angeles.

Great artists like Joe Bonamassa and Arturo Sandoval gave the honor of a guest appearance. Now, a year later, the CD is finally done and released on HornStar Records.

You can buy a copy of this fantastic new CD from Katja's website or from CD Baby the album is also available on i-tunes
