This album is a small piece of art. Stroe recorded a beautiful and smooth longplay. Every song here is full of feelings and different stories. Don't forget about Miles Bonny, he's a perfect addition to each one track
Favorite track: A New Village.
Envision a day as an album, 24 hours spanning hours of sun and the darkness of night. A rhythm reemerges again and again, but never the same way twice. This day symbolizes a personal process of development and understanding, and culminates in a new dawn: My Dear It’s Getting Morning Soon
The LP My Dear It’s Getting Morning Soon is, however, not a conceptual album. Instead, the content emerged fully naturally from the creative process. The images that come to the listener’s mind – the stories that are told – are conscious and unconscious reflections on Stroe’s daily life, internal and external visions between urban yearnings and escape into the natural world.
My Dear It’s Getting Morning Soon stands for a “return to nature, a return to oneself!” It is situated musically between traditional hip-hop percussion and old-fashioned jazz, among synthesizers, Rhodes piano, and vibraphone, the brass of the trumpet and strings of a guitar. And with much to discover throughout! Stroe is accompanied on the LP solely by his musical cohort, Miles Bonny, who remains a favorite among insiders of the neo-soul scene and who adeptly blends his warm deep voice into the esthetics of the album.
The album did take a while to coalesce. Stroe deliberately took his time – and had to take his time as a jack of all trades, who pursues his music as a passion and not as a kind of workaday job. My Dear It’s Getting Morning Soon thus reflects a course of development – both musical and human – that spanned a number of years. For Stroe, solitude constitutes the beginning and end of this process, solitude is what fills the beats: beginning as fear, it ideally concludes with the joy of a new dawn - “My dear, it will be morning soon”.
“All that I do is part of a process, a path to attain greater freedom. And music is likely the most intensive form this path takes.“
