Back in 2018 I met up with Martin Hall in connection with an upcoming tour around Denmark. He presented me with a song he was working on and I was immediately struck by the power of the song.
In my mind I heard strings as the perfect extra for the song and I offered to write a string arrangement for the song.
After a bit of back and forth we landed in a place of romantic classically sounding strings. We went into the studio with Johnny Stage as the producer and 5 strings players.
The recording features Eskild Winding (piano), Tinne Albrectsen (violin), Gustav Ranum (violin), Nicolaj Møller Nielsen (viola), Live Johansson (cello) and Andreas Bennetzen (string bass)
The session went really well an Thomas Li mixed and mastered the track. The result is breathtaking and very moving.
Martin Hall is an amazing artist and a great person. I really like working with him, but unfortunately he only tours every 5 years.
It is how he prefers to work. He also writes books and excels in other artforms so touring is not his first priority.
The Danish Magazine Gaffa wrote a review of the tour and it was a top rated 6 star review.
Martin also made a music video for Services Rendered. A very emotional video in Black&White with Martin as the only performer. The video has been filmed by Robin Skjoldborg and features sequences produced by Staal Film. Edited by Michael Webster and Johnny Stage.
