Ad Vanderveen :: I was Hank Williams

by

Nederland zou wel eens wat trotser mogen zijn op Ad Vanderveen. Liedjesschrijver van Champions League-niveau, zanger in de beste Neil Young-traditie en gitarist van extra klasse. Jaar na jaar levert hij de ene na de andere prachtplaat af en I Was Hank Williams is één van de allerbeste in zijn grote en imposante oeuvre. Deze keer soms jazzy a la Tom Waits, op andere momenten sober als Springsteen’s Nebraska, dan weer filosofisch als hij in het titelnummer zingt: ‘Fortune and fame are good for no one.’ En zo gaat I Was Hank Williams van het ene hoogtepunt naar het andere. Wat een muzikant, wat een plaat!

Reminiscent of works like John Steinbeck’s ‘Travels With Charlie’ or Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Nebraska’, the new album ‘I Was Hank Williams’ by songwriter and singer Ad Vanderveen is a personal quest and an adventure. It is a quest for self-knowledge leading to spirituality, and an investigation into the origin of a dream. A dream that is old and has led the writer down a long road of countless songs and many records. It has a strong fascination for the new world, and is anchored in the old one.
Remarkable of Vanderveen’s work may be the insights and influences of Eastern philosophy, which he has studied and practised over the years, that shine a special light on different subjects, within a musical context of a distinct Western character.
