Recording Walk on Water was also a bit exceptional. I started singing the first phrase of the song during a rehearsal when pianist and producer David Kops, almost immediately recognized some potential and asked me to stop and keep the song for myself until we were all in the studio and we would be able to record it as we first felt it. And we did. After recording songs for two days we had finished all our planned material so in the last hour of studio time I started playing the song. Everyone fell in, we didn’t discuss much. Drummer Sin Banoviç got us into a good structure almost immediately and everyone just knew what to do instinctively. That night David worked until the morning and came up with this beautiful mix and I had one of the happiest moments in my life. Lots of things go wrong but this one we got right.
I am very glad Sabijn Peeters was still around to get those moments on video. Walk on water was recorded with Marjolein van der Klauw, backing vocals, Sin Banoviç, drums, Sjaak Thissen, bass, Sander Donkers, guitar and David Kops, piano and mix.
