Some exciting news ahead for Hallur Joensen, a new record on its way and he has signed with a new management. First of all the new management, FO Music Management is based in the Faroe Islands with manager Gudmund Djurhuus.
FO Music Management will from now on be representing Hallur and handling requests, booking and so forth. FO Music Management has signed with some stars in the Faroe Islands already, except from Hallur FO Music Management takes care of Evi Tausen and Jens Marni Hansen.
Hallur Joensen is ready with his fourth record With Stars & Legends, recorded in the capital of country music, Nashville. Hallur is very excited about his coming record which has been produced by Jákup Zachariassen. This album is the result of cooperation with some great stars in the country genre.
Hallur’s first record was the Pickin’ Time In Nashville and it was introduced back in 2008. One year later he was ready with another record, this time with a one-word title Smile. These two records were all English and did reach great heights abroad as well as locally in the Faroes.
After the two English records Hallur wanted to make a Faroese record and it was on the market in 2011 and is called Enn Stendur Hurðin Opin.
Among the big names included in With Stars & Legends we can mention the likes of: Dawn Sears, Vince Gill, Charley Pride, Bobby Bare, Bellamy Brothers, Sonya Isaac and Kris Kristofferson. When these names come up one always thinks of quality music and therefore Hallur is hoping that his album will get a really good welcome to the country stage.
The songs on With Stars & Legends are written by the Faroese guys Jákup Zachariassen, Martin Joensen, Niclas Johannesen, and Kristoffer Mørkøre.
The record will be public Monday 3rd of June and you can find it digitally on iTunes and in stores. This new record will include thirteen songs.
Hallur’s first live performance after the launch of With Stars & Legends will be a local Faroese country festival held in Sørvágur in the days 7th and 8th of June. See more about the festival at www.country.fo.
Stay tuned for more news as the day of the launch of Stars & Legends draws nearer.
