I’m happy to announce that we have started working on the follow up album to “Definitely Something”. It will be recorded in – RecPublica Studios in Poland in October of 2017. A full length video of the sessions will be made as well. We are super excited! The release is planned for March 2018.
I will be posting all developments here and on Facebook so please keep checking back for news, sneak peaks and more.
As you probably know the past year has been musically extremely busy for me. In the beginning of the year I brought out my debut album “Definitely Something” with my band the Wojtek Justyna Tree… Oh!? that has been very well received by the Dutch music press. In the spring and summer we toured in the Netherlands and in Poland performing for enthusiastic crowds in clubs as well as bigger festivals such as Jazz Festival Delft (NL) and Letni Festiwal Jazzowy (PL). The past weekend my group and I played for the first time in Germany during – Jazzmeile Thuringen and I am happy to be going back in the beginning of December for another concert tour. We will close off this year with a performance in The Hague during the State-X New Forms festival where we will perform alongside the most renowned musicians and bands of today such as Mark Guiliana, Cory Henry and Snarky Puppy.
These achievements have been noticed by the Polonus Foundation, that was setup in 2011 to help build a better image of Poland in The Netherlands, and I have been nominated by them for the Pole of the Year award in the category “Successful Young Pole”.
This is of course a huge honor for me and I am extremely proud and happy to share this news with you.
I’m thrilled to announce the first Tree… Oh!? concert in Germany during Jazzmeile Thuringen on Saturday the 7th of November. We will be sharing the stage with Jazzpospolita – a phenomenal polish avant-garde formation. It’s gonna be lots of fun!
Ogromnie się cieszę, że w tym roku po raz pierwszy od dziesięciu lat wystąpię z moim międzynarodowym zespołem w Polsce. Zagrają ze mną Gerold Olieberg z Holandii na basie i Alex Bernath z Niemiec na perkusji.
Wszystkie szczegóły znajdziecie w zakładce “LIVE”.
