After more than three decades of serving as the # 1 Danish in-demand session guitarist, Aske Jacoby now pursues his solo career a 100 %! Through the years Aske has played on more than 350 records and toured the world with various artists. In Between all this he has released four solo albums and by the fifth, the 2014 release, “Chant”, he finally did break with his former life and went on a new adventure as a full time soloist. With Soothing vocals, strong melodies, world class guitar playing and great story telling lyrics, Aske Jacoby reaches for the stars.

“Chant” was recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound Studio in West Hollywood, L.A., with other world class players such as bass player Tony Scherr, ( Bill Frisell, Norah Jones, Aaron Neville, Willie Nelson) and legendary drummer Jim Keltner, (John Lennon, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell a.m.o.)

Aske Jacoby just got back from L.A. after a very fruitful session with the two. They picked up where they left, had tremendous fun and the result is quite breathtaking! The trio are also accompagned by a string quartet from The National Danish Symphony Orchestra as well as horn players from both The Symphony Orchestra and The Danish National Radio BigBand and the music is still storytelling songs, now in the settings of Rock, Folk, Jazz, and monumental ballads.

The album is going to be called Luna Plena Super Me and is to be released early spring 2016 on Sony Music Denmark.
