ABOUT THE BAND



English

The Band was founded in october 2006. While John Abius produced the album "Paradise Road", many people listen to the new songs and said: "This must be on stage". For John Abius was it the main reason to start the band SOUTH-WEST-WIND.

Within the last decade John Abius produced many songs and the band made two following albums called "Masquerade" and "Silent Ocean". Now aditional you find the "Cross Culture Club" and "The Best Of The Rest" album here. Look also at the buttom "MUSIC/EVENTS". 

Currently the band is working on it's stage program. Also a new studio album is in preparation.


Deutsch

Die Band SOUTH-WEST-WIND wurde 2006 von John Abius gegründet. Er produzierte mit verschiedenen Mitmusikerinnen und Musikern (Dia-show) in den Jahren 2003 - 2006 das Album "Paradise Road". Zahlreiche Songs handeln von den berauschenden Landschaften Südarfikas und von Ereignissen die sich in Texten und der  Musik dieses Albums niederschlugen. Viele Hörer des Studioalbums meinten diese Songs müssen auf die Bühne. So ergab es sich nahezu zwangsläufig, eine Band zu gründen.

Inzwischen wurden insgesamt 5 Studioalben veröffentlicht, Songs stehen in einschlägigen Internetseiten zum download zur Verfügung. Neu ist im Eigenvertrieb das Album  "Cross Culture Club" und "The Best Of The Rest". Hier erhältlich.  

Demnächst startet die Band damit, das Programm wieder einzuarbeiten, u.a. auch mit neuen Titeln. Ein sechstes Album ist in Vorbereitung.
