About the album
BUBBLY JOYRIDE TO UTOPIA
BUBBLY JOYRIDE TO UTOPIA tells mysterious stories, without using any words. The guitar takes over the role of the storyteller and accompanies the listeners journey into the realm of imagination; where the impossible becomes possible, the dream becomes reality and the imagination has a voice.
BUBBLY JOYRIDE TO UTOPIA is the first concept album of Fabian Dee Dammers, guitarist of Udo Dirkschneider´s U.D.O.
“I tried to avoid being cliché, by not complying to standards”, says Dee about the songwriting, “rather to transform thoughts and stories into a musical form and thus I was able to create my uncompromising debut album.”
The album was recorded by Robert Söhngen (drums), Leon Dombrowski (bass), Phil Schwerhoff (piano), Melissa Tendick (violin) und Fabian Dee Dammers (guitar, keys) and was mixed and mastered by Manuel Cohnen.
