SESSION: I Got You On Tape

in Sessions by

I Got You On Tape formed as an “all-star” band back in 2004 as acclaimed musicians from the Copenhagen indie, jazz and underground scene. It wasn’t before 2006 when they released their self titled debut album on Auditorium Records, which laid down the foundation for the bands sound and by the time they came round to releasing their follow up ‘2‘ in 2007 they gained a strong reputation as a top live act in Denmark. A switch to Tiger Spring Records for their third album “Spinning For The Cause” which was released in 2009, earned them rave reviews and the top award at the DR P3Awards in 2010. They released their highly anticipated fourth album “Church Of The Real” in September 2011 and have since been touring extensively stopping off at SXSWRoskilde Festivaland bowing out with a show at Tivoli to cap off 2012.

Both Rebekka Maria and The Hymn Boy (Jonas Petersen) need no introduction in Denmark, both respectable musicians made names for themselves with individual musical endeavours ‘Hymns From Nineveh‘ (and former band Attrap) and her solo career in both ‘As In Rebekka Maria‘ and ‘Lampshade’. They’ve merged to make the project RebekkaMaria and The HymnBoy back in 2010, as long term friend, they played together a range of their back catalog all in the name of fun, they soon found themselves writing their own songs and with it the project (or “band”) was born. In spring 2012 they released ‘Friendly Duets‘, a mixture of their old material and covers.
