A ROCK 'N ROLL LIFE COME FULL CIRCLE – ‘HOME AT LAST’
'Home at last' is what best describes Theo Lens after many years of struggle and loneliness. It has come full circle after traveling all over the world, living his American dream and ending up losing it all. This album and concert registration take Theo's story to a universal level as many people can relate to what he has been through.
The album 'Home at last' is a one-man road trip that begins and ends in the same place, chronicle of a life come full circle. With lots of characters from the dark side of life this album echoes the works of bands like The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and the Counting Crows.
It's a story of rock & roll that fortunately did not end in the gutter - rather the opposite as the creation of the album was inspired by the classic Rembrandt painting ‘The Prodigal Son’. Theo sees parallels between the story of the wayward son and himself through the years and decided to write this (concept) album ‘Home at last’.
‘I love the idea of a concept album, and it’s been a long time since I’ve heard one. This time I contacted all musicians I had wanted to work with for a long time and asked them to join me.’ Musicians like Hans Eikenaar, Dennis Tielkes, Jeff Zwart, Nico Brandsen, Michiel van Schie, Blaudzun (Johannes Sigmund) and more have added their parts to the album. The album was mixed at the Electric Ladyland Studios, New York (Jimi Hendrix) by his all-time favorite producer Michael Brauer, a legend known for his work with countless bands, ranging from The Rolling Stones to Coldplay and from Bob Dylan to John Mayer.
The project does not end with the release of this album as we have put together a band for a tour throughout Europe the coming years. ‘The story is universal, and more importantly, it’s mine to tell. I can’t wait to get the word out’.
