When The Sea Remembers CD Review
[+ Show ]
Andreas...he goes by one name so he must be famous already. Well, he actually is pretty well known i...Andreas...he goes by one name so he must be famous already. Well, he actually is pretty well known in his native country Greece. Andreas' music is truly universal. If you're a fan of Andrea Bocelli you'll enjoy Andreas' music as well.
Although not as techincally savvy as Bocelli, Andreas puts a lot of passion and life into his compositions. This music is truly for the lover of the ambient, piano driven music of Bocelli, Yanni and Tesh. If you think that style of music is boring thn stay away from this album.
The set list for an Andreas concert includes 20 original Andreas songs and lasts for about 2 hours.
3.The Hymn of Heroes
4.A New Beginning
6.When The Sea Remembers
8.The Beauty of Nature
9.On The Beach
