The Perfectly Imperfect Side Of Love...

Released today... THE PERFECTLY IMPERFECT SIDE OF LOVE by Ralph George; an album made from a number of sheets of lyrics and ideas, which Mr. George couldn't do anything with without help... so he called #JK for a little assistance... Which lead to this perfectly imperfect mix of styles (mostly alternative country) which displays a person who went through a lot of emotions, and in the end, found a voice to ventilate a whirlwind of feelings... Produced by Jean Koning, made by Ralph and Jean...

Dip into the sea of emotions, swim in the stream of tenderness, dive into the tows of unanswered loves... drown in the river of misery... ascend out of the lake of hope...



Also available at:

iTunes/AppleMusic
Deezer

reversed playlisting...

#JK decided to re-release some of the playlists he made in 2013 for an online magazine. Under the moniker "Jean Curates", the playlists will be revised—some stuff will be taken out of it, some stuff will be added to it...

Traveling the internet to explain his upcoming full-cover covers album, every now and then, Koning's site will relaunch some of the stunning covers he has recorded before...

new album title: LINGO: LIFE LEGEND LOST

Covers albums are usually a chance for a singer to let their hair down a little, a creative break while they wait for new ideas to come along. Trust Jean Koning to do it differently. The concept behind LINGO: LIFE LEGEND LOST is that all the songs were written by musicians who we've lost between January 2016 and December 2017, all the songs were written during some political or social turmoil, all songs are considered classics, however have very little connection with the current teenagers, wandering aimlessly the planet, facing doubt, racism, and a false sense of connection. All these songs are now reinterpreted by one of the most original musicians around. "I took the lyrics of these songs and tried to interpreted them as very now. What would the song sound like if it were written today? They're basically very simple songs, and yet, very dark ones too. They contain more resistance, anger, empathy and comfort than any of the songs w…
