My new album, Cleaned the Windows, is finally out!

There’s a nice write up about it on Music Won’t Save You. Buy your very own (digital or physical) copy from Bandcamp, where the largest share will go to the artist. It is also available on all other digital streaming and downloading platforms.

I am very grateful to Tiny Room Records and Stefan Breuer’s instrumentals, mixing skills and support.

Would you like to sign up for sporadic updates from Geri, for example when she is going to be playing live? Sign up here.

“Geri van Essen does not have the ambition to reinvent folk music but she does have something to add to this long tradition. In the first place through her clear, fragile voice. Her modest, story telling lyrics are sometimes time specific, but more often timeless, and that is when it becomes interesting.” Klaas Knooihuizen, Trouw

“… diepgravende, emotioneel geladen en invoelbare prachtsongs. Het zijn stuk voor stuk instant klassiekers, die zowel in de jaren 60 en 70 als in het heden en de toekomst kunnen wortelen. Je moet daarbij denken aan een gevarieerde kruisbestuiving van Sibylle Baier, Dusty Springfield, Karen Dalton, Beth Gibbons, Tarnation, Aldous Harding en Heidi Berry. Daar kan je ook met vieze ramen prima mee thuiskomen. Een meesterlijk album, laat ik daar glashelder over zijn!” Jan Willem Broek,

Crowdfunding campaign

4/12/20 – The goal has been reached!

It only took a few days to get to the projected £490, thank you!

I can’t wait to send you your cds and digital dowloads in April, and will be getting started on the cushions soon. Thank you also to the people who’ve simply donated, that’s really generous.

Just to say that this campaign can’t be closed until the closing date of 15 January (I did try). So I’ve decided to add an additional cause to this campaign.

The cd sleeve is being designed by amazing Lizzie Kevan Curtis and any money that is contributed over £490 will go toward paying her.

You can see a mock version of the design on the campaign page. The beautiful painting of red geraniums is by Theo Mouxigouli.
