This is about the solo project of Sue Daniels, who, in 1998 at the age of 17, started recording the CD “Paris”. Basic recording and programming were done at home on his pc. For two years he worked on the recordings in the ghosttownstudio’s during his schoolholidays.
At a certain point he mailed some results to Rudy Trouvé, who liked it very much, and after this was playing a major guest-role, also inviting Sigrid Van Rosendaal, Mauro Pawlowski and Elko Blijweert to participate as guest-musicians, and released the CDs under the Heaven Hotel label. Sue Daniels does not like publicity or promotion, only one interview was ever done at Studio Brussels.
