“AWAKENING (IN MEMORY OF COLIN TENCH)” IS ANDRES GUAZZELLI‘S LATEST EP IN MEMORY OF HIS LATE FRIEND AND MUSICAL COMPANION COLIN TENCH.
Colin Tench passed away of natural causes on December 27, 2017, only days after the release of his album ‘Minor Masterpiece‘, leaving his mark on all of his close friends and leaving behind an extensive musical legacy.
“Awakening (in memory of Colin Tench)” dwells upon the feelings of grief, nostalgia, and finally acceptance after the loss of a loved one. The album is the culmination of a three-year-long journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance for Andres, in his life role as a musician, composer, and human being.
Along with the usual Guazzelli collaborators, ‘Awakening‘ features Mr. Tench himself on acoustic and electric guitars. The unused guitar takes from ‘Wish You Could Hear‘ and ‘Wötan: The Untold Story‘ were used for the creation and new musical pieces. In addition, the album has 20 bonus tracks from 2011 to 2013, including Tench’s first guitar recordings since 1985.
‘August (A Cold Winter Morning)” is the first track of the trilogy. The single edit was released on February 3rd, 2018 and it was reworked to appear in this album.
