The vocals are incredibly beautiful and awe-inspiring like the sight of the earth from space. The highs and lows of Cimo voice are refined and rich. The melody sits on the threshold of edgy rock. However, it is not a rock ballad. The listener is invited into a world where effortless aspects of acoustic guitar strings merge simply with the vocals.
Cimo Fränkel tells us the motivation behind his embarking on working and releasing the new single, “I’ve always admired CAM as a singer, songwriter and artist. When I first heard ‘Burning House’ I fell in love with the melody and message of the song right away and was immediately inspired to make my own version of it”.
