The album “Traces Of Time” is out on Nobel Records.
Moon ontherun finally presents the album “Traces of Time”.
A collection of 13 songs inspired by the great pop-legends in pop-music’s earlier days and also by contemporary pop music. The album is the result of a musical journey that started with composer and pianist Roger Thierry Matte’s passion for harmony-based pop music.
While trying out various singers Ingeborg Riis one day appeared in Roger’s home studio to do a test of the song “For A While”.
Roger was amazed by Ingeborg’s voice and he knew, this was the voice for his songs.
Initially “just” as a vocalist on the project, Ingeborg got more and more involved in the process, participating with ideas and different advise for the production. Roger states that Ingeborg had an important role and the songs would be far from how they turned out to be without her.
