BUSCH Coming Home -

an American production by a German songwriter and performer.

The story of this album is easily told. When Dirk Busch, successful German singer songwriter with various chart - hits, recorded his last album "Keine Tricks" ("No Tricks") for Polydor in the USA, there were some unexpected reactions on the part of the musicians involved . Well-known studio-celebrities like Carlos Vega (drummer with Vince Gill, Reba McIntyre, James Taylor etc.) or Jimmy Johnson (bass player with Reba McIntyre, James Taylor etc.) were astounded, that he only sang in German. To them the songs appeared highly 'competitive' and would certainly sound great in English. They also thought his voice and the way he sings would fit well into today's country music scene, where more and more pop music elements have been introduced. As Dirk Busch has always seen himself as a story - teller, this praise from these highly respected people became both motivation and incentive for writing new songs and putting the idea into action. It has been extremely helpful for the realization, that Dirk Busch has owned a second domicile on the east coast of the USA for some years. He spends several months a year in the States and this has brought him closer to American music and the American way of life. In the past few years he has also produced several recordings in the USA for the international market featuring American artists (among others with Douglas Datwyler, longstanding guitarist of the Commodores or LA- pianist David Scott), so that there have been many professional contacts and no problems getting the respective musicians and studios for this project. From the musical point of view Coming Home was very much a home game for Dirk Busch, because he always listened to and liked country music since he was a little boy. Later he played many of his favorite American songs live on stage. And some people in the German music business have been telling him for years that there is a strong country influence in many of his successful German songs. Coming Home turned out to be a convincing production and a very beautiful and varied album with great ballads and fresh, positive songs.
