Christiana Dehmer: Here I Am – Single – 2021 – Creative Heart Music

Genre: Contemporary Vocal Jazz Pop Piano

There is something new to report from Christiane Dehmer: on August 20, 2021 Christiane’s new EP “Together” will be released, the English version to the EP “Zusammen”, which is already available on the market since October 2020. And today, on Friday, June 25, 2021, Christiane is giving us the single “I Am Here” as an appetizer for the new EP.

The Single “I Am Here”

The EP Together is about the connection between us in difficult times, about being there for each other, about giving hope and keeping and rekindling the joy of life and the courage to carry on. For me, the track “I am Here”, which has now been released, is the key track of the EP with an immensely strong message. Christiane Dehmer says: “It’s a song about being connected to each other. This is what you need not only when you have to keep distance from each other because of the pandemic, and even more when you cannot see friends who live very far away for a long time as a result of these reasons.”

With the english version, concerning the single as well as the EP, Christiane Dehmer is fulfilling herself the huge wish of being able to reach and be there for even more fans and friends worldwide. According to Christiane, its immensely important to master the present in a meaningful way TOGETHER, so that we can shape the future for us and the following generation in a balanced, fair and livable way – in harmony with powerful strong relationships with each other and the commitment to preserve nature on this planet.

But this worldwide crisis is massively limiting all of us in our possibilities. In many cases, communication was and is only possible on a virtual level, but this is only an inadequate substitute when it comes to personal contact and a relationship with one another. “I know some of my friends have a hard time these days,” Christiane says,, “and it’ s deeply sad and difficult not to be able to show this in direct contact with one another and also help in this way.”

This is the message, these are the words that Christiane is sending us with the EP “Together” and the single “I Am Here”: STAY CONNECTED. But Christiane does all this without the raised pen, but with a deeply humanistic approach that characterizes all her works.

Some time ago Nora En Pure, the DJ icon from Switzerland, said quite aptly that releasing music in these special times is the only way left for us artists to stay in touch with each other, to be connected to the fans out there.

And Christiane Dehmer skillfully expresses this with ” I Am Here”. Her fanbase is huge and internationally spread over several continents, moreover Christiane is also involved in development projects, for example in Uganda, and so she was able to develop quite strong friendships with many people there – and it is important to give each other the feeling of being connected.

Christene made good use of the time, which got longer and longer due to all the lockdowns and contact restrictions, and spent days and months in the studio putting the finishing touch on the English arrangements. And that’s what you hear.

The single “I Am Here” and also the EP “Together” are, in simple words, musically infinitely beautiful. But with Christiane’s works the question always remains, how should we classify it musically, into which genre should the whole thing be packed into. I just called the singe as well as the EP “Contemporary Vocal Jazz Pop Piano”. The single in particular breathes Christiane’s jazz background with every breath and is carried by an airy relaxed and very clear jazz characteristic.

However, with the single as well as with the EP “Together” Christiane is completely at the height of the time and therefore also mighty hip, because she also doesn’t save on a certain currently strongly trendy singer/songwriter attitude, which for example also characterizes the new releases of “Monolink” (Under Darkening Skies) and “Caoilfhionn Rose” with the album “Truly”.

Addendum: The Video for the track “I Am Here”

Yesterday, June 30, 2021 Christiane Dehmer also released the video for your new single “I Am Here”. Considering that it is a self-production, the video has been implemented visually incredibly well with a lot of imaginativeness so that the message of the track is conveyed skillfully.

Sure, it’s not a hyper-professionally styled glossy production, but it doesn’t have to be, because Christiane’s production has a lot of charm and breathes life, and that’s really what defines a good video production. My initial concerns have been completely unnecessary, as the video impressively shows.

Christiane is here. Everything she does works out just perfectly.

Rating

Her vocals are clear as a bell, immensely versatile, beautiful, and float on a solid piano fundament marked by Christiane’s jazzy easy-going piano performance on a Schimmel piano. There are also various synths in use, such as the legendary analog Sequential Prophet 6, the Behringer Model D and the Vermona DRMK 1 (drum syntie), which add further layers of sound to Christiane’s work giving the sound more depth.

Sound Quality

I have the files in 24 Bit / 96 kHz, the sound is sensationally good and has reference qualities. Of course, this also benefits the 16 bit / 44.1 kHz versions.
