First international album for established German Roots artistproduced and presented by the legendary George "Fully" Fullwood, the leader of the Soul Syndicate!
Over the years George "Fully" Fullwood has become more and more involved in producing. When Martin Zobel and Fully Fullwood met in person in February 2011, the chemistry between them seemed to be right, and it was agreed that Fullwood would produce Zobel's new album. Zobel significantly reduced his live appearances to focus on writing new songs, and only six months after that first meeting, Fully and Frances (Fully's wife) were welcoming Martin and his whole band into FULLY'S KITCHEN, their Southern California studio, to begin the recordings. Martin Zobel & Soulrise spent an entire month in the "Kitchen", cooking up their new songs, and for the sake of authenticity performed and recorded everything 'live' - just like back in the days. The result is a wonderful musical snapshot in time which,
in every detail, reveals the spirit that must have been present during those early studio sessions back in Kingston, Jamaica. Beyond that, one is reminded of a sound, the likes of which hasn't been heard for a long time, a sound containing something so familiar, yet different with something new and refreshing – a new breath of life. With "Land Of The Free" Fullwood, Zobel & Soulrise have managed to create a record in an extremely relaxed manner that is packed with emotions and musicality that stands on its own.
