Filmmaker Wouter Bolier www.bigbangfilm.nl made some beautifull clips of Perfect day, Dolphins and an interview of “The making of” with myself in and around The Stables, you can see them on youtube and on my site.

Thanks Wouter, great job!

Soon will be started with the new album, I’ve written several songs now and we are rehursing them several times a week in The Stables www.thestables.nl .

All tracks on the new album will be written by myself, as you know (see Press) was the press very possitive about my own songs on “Mirror” .

The new album will be be produced (again) by Gerben Klazinga and I’m looking forward to work again with my friend Gerben.

Thanks for reading!

Best,

Johnny Verger

Finally the new album “Mirror of Forgotten Dreams” is for sale! 16th of May was a great day for me, the release with as special guest my dear friend Beth Wimmer from the U.S.A who gave a great show in The Stables, our own little venue in Boskoop.
The place was too small for all the people who were there, so some had to stay outsite but the weather was nice and the door open so they were o.k!
My good friend and major of Boskoop Coos Rijsdijk gave me the first CD and he sang a beautiful song about me, thanks for that Coos!
The press was there too ( Cees Bakker a musician himself, we played in Toolbox together) and he wrote a nice article in the local newspaper.
Radio Hoekse Waard who broadcasted one hour of music of Beth and me and radio Beverwijk who plays our songs as well, thanks for that!
See the images on Gallery!

Interesting times working on the new album, coming thursday 14th of May back in the studio again with my good friend Gerben Klazinga who is one of the best musicians I've ever met ( Knight Area).

Hopefully the album will be ready this summer!
Yesterday I was at present when the talented Merel Hutten introduced her new album "Take a walk" in Amsterdam Credo, she performed several numbers of the CD and she is great!
We're doing a show in February together in our "own" The Stables, Boskoop/ Holland, I'm looking forward!

Hoping to see you all upthere as well sometimes!
Lots of succes!
