|ALL MY EXES FROM THE HEN HOUSE Limited Vinyl LP
11 rough folk numbers rooted in the country and blues music make up All My Exes’s second studio album ’From the Hen House’. The music ranges from thoughtful notes to energetic dance tunes. ‘From the Hen House’ is written, recorded and produced by the band themselves, and it has all come into existence in an old bunker from the Second World War.
Find a farm, catch a hen, scatter flour out over it and throw it up into the air – then you have the cover. Mix guitar, drums, banjo and organ and add Steffen Christensen’s rough vocal – then you have the music. Welcome to ’From the Hen House’!
All My Exes is ready with 11 new mucky folk numbers rooted in the country and blues music. Festive dance tunes along with more calm numbers are served on the band’s second studio album ’From the Hen House’. The notes from the banjo make it difficult to keep still.
The creator and front man of the band, Steffen Christensen, is born and bred in Southern Jutland, for which reason Tønder Festival has been a crucial part of his musical upbringing. This is obvious from All My Exes’s unmistakable folk sound. Like their debut album, ’From the Hen House’ is written, recorded and produced by the band themselves in their own studio, a bunker from the Second World War. In this setting, the unique sound of All My Exes has been built.
Once again All My Exes team up with some of the best blues and folk musicians in Denmark, Ronni Boysen, J.Tex and Lasse Herbst.
A concert with All My Exes is always worth a visit. Since their debut album “From Nashville to El Paso” in 2013, the band has been giving tons of concerts around Denmark. Festivals and well-established venues as well as private living rooms, barns and gardens have set the scene. Actually, intimate concerts have almost become the band’s trademark.
The band is composed of guitarist and backing vocalist Mikkel M. Christensen, drummer Lars Andersen, bassist Mads Bay, and lead singer Steffen Christensen also playing banjo and dobro guitar.
