Whether revered, feared, admired or persecuted, the OWL is emblematic of good and evil while also being a symbol of wisdom – and the guardian and sorceress of the night. Singer-songwriter Michael Sele has chosen to use the name of this fascinating nocturnal creature for his new album and concert tour. We’d therefore be right to assume that this eagerly anticipated flight with the owl represents another key new milestone in the twelve-year-long career of the charismatic master, together with his band THE BEAUTY OF GEMINA. With 10 new songs and one instrumental track on what is his 8th studio album, Michael Sele once again demonstrates his international class as a composer, singer, arranger, and producer. The music is reduced to the essentials, yet is always intense and vibrant. With its tasteful melodic arrangement, it lifts the spirits while also celebrating the aesthetic of darkness in a way that skilfully avoids disturbing emotional overtones. The topics and lyrics of the songs poetically and gently illuminate every facet of the human condition: our hopes and fears, our contradictions and desires, and our passion and love.
