Knol d'amour

In 2011 I was asked by the foodies from Super Hallo to team up with singer-songwriter Jonathan Brown (Dusty Stray) to make and record some tunes for a potato installation. Yes - you read it right. Potato.Installation.
I had no associations whatever of potatoes and music when we started but I think the result was very good! Super Hallo's potatoe installation on wheels is still rolling around the BeneLux - you can look,listen and eat their incredible fries at festivals through the whole festival season. 

Check their website for dates and a short impression of the potato caravan - 

..and feel free to contact me for projects including food and music. I love both :)
