This CD was a labour of Love for me.
Ever since my teenage years, I have been trying to step out of my Dad's shadow. I needed to prove, that I was to be taken serious, and that I was not just "the son of..."
It appears that I accomplished that.
At that time, I returned to Germany, and the opportunity for this project came up. It was important to me, that - besides the required Gus Backus hits - we would include our own original songs on the album. Which we did. The only "problem" was, that they all had to be translated to german. And that's what I - with some help - did.
This CD includes 8 original songs from the Backus Boys, two of them are duetts between my Dad and myself.
I am very proud of this album, and will always cherish it!
The CD was released on April 22, 2014.
