Songs for flying is the outcome of a remarkable collaboration between Berlin-based singer and violist Roland Satterwhite and the Dutch North Sea String Quartet. Roland’s soulful songwriting gets embodied by his deep, compelling voice and the sensitive playing of the string quartet, resulting in breathtaking sincerity.

Our second EP is the result of a journey through different musical fields and genres, broadening our horizons and stirring our imagination. Aside from compositions that are influenced by Irish and Canary Island folk music, we’ve included our very first arrangement of African music. In contrast to these folk tunes, you will hear compositions that show another side of the quartet: intimate and sensitive storytelling.
