Über Jules Ahoi
"DEAR ____" is without a doubt a deeply personal record. However, because Jules Ahoi addresses universal themes and has found a sound language that is as emotional as it is cleverly thought out, anyone with a minimum of empathy and a heart for exciting art can feel addressed by it. A lot of unexpected and surprising things happen - astonishing twists and breaks, delightful variations on outdated conventions, the integration of sounds from the iPhone memory and stylistic devices from very different genres. In order to write and developing the songs for "DEAR ____", Jules Ahoi had to process the experiences of the past years and draw a conclusion. The loss of a dear person, looking to find his place in life or simply an emotional moment. On the record he summarizes what moved, shook, inspired and dismayed him as a person and artist. Because he was able to draw consequences from his experiences and reflections, "DEAR ____" became a huge step forward - away from pure folk and folk rock to something that, in search of labels, one might call alternative pop, art pop or art folk.
