Forum member, Jorcx, new album

It's a big pleasure to announce the issue of the new album of our forum member and friend, well known for those having attended to the Barcelona meetups in 2009 and 2012, JORCX.
10 poems by Joan Margarit, musicalized and sung by Jorcx.
Margarit is a well known Catalan poet.
The topics covered are very close and familiar, but also deal with major universal and transcendental such as time passing, loneliness, pain of life and death, etc..

Here you have a link to Margarit in English and some of his English translations covers

Thanks very much, Bea!
I have to say that this project was possible through a crowdfunding campaign where forum members Bea, Chema and Meritxell collaborated generously...

Enhorabuena, Jorcx!

Wonderful news. I am very glad, Jorcx follows his way with the music and that he found the possibility to produce a new album.

I will definitely buy the CD.
I´ll first see the next weeks if we meet with friends from Barcelona on a Mr Cohen concert this summer to hand it over personally, otherwise I´ll get in touch with you, Jorcx.

I´d love it if the CD comes with the lyrics both in Catalan and English.

All the best for you, Jorcx, and for your music career.
And thanks, Bea, for starting this thread.

Thanks very much for your kind words and your support, Harald:
I'll be very happy that you get to listen my new album, I believe there is some amount of Cohen style in both these poems and songs... All the best,
Jordi

Dear friends, in addition to the new record I'm proud to also present a new videoclip of one of my own songs:

"L'Oncle Cohen" ("Uncle Cohen")
Music by Jorcx / Lyrics by Artur Rodríguez
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1tcoWf-ZNg

It is in fact some kind of emotional reference to the figure of Leonard as a guiding presence in corner-stone moments of life. Some of you who attended the latest Barcelona Event in October '12 may have already seen me play this song live in the tribute concert. Best regards, I hope you like it!
