Early spring, 2018. Three friends decided to start a music project called Jambo-X.
Their goal, next to having fun: Create a concept album like one produced in the 70’s and 80’ with a modern twist.
With the arrangements of Wolfgang “Buffy” Albers on keys and his years of experience producing, The bass playing skills of veteran Johannes “Hannes” Wilken and the vocals / lyrics by Willem van Egmond, Jambo-X found their own sound.
Vintage keyboards and synthesizers form the base to songs that vary in style. From Electro Pop to Reggae, to bits of Blues, Symphonic Rock or even Ethnic music.
The album that they work on follow a storyline about someone who made it big on Social Media. A famous vlogger or Influenceer that lives his life online. Someone who lost connection to the real world but then is forced to go offline after a series of serious life changing events. A dark tale set in the modern madness of the digital world...
