We’re happy to share with you this new video from The Gentle Storm for the song “The Heart of Amsterdam”, the second one we get to listen from the album “The Diary”. In this video we get to see Anneke and Arjen performing along with the band that helped them record this album and will join them soon in their european tour; we also get to listen to the talented Marcela Bovio (Stream of Passion) on the backing vocals.
Anneke talks about the video:
The song is a tribute to the city of Amsterdam, the home town of the story’s leading character Susanne. Seventeenth-century Amsterdam was a center of shipping, shipbuilding, and trade. Amsterdam flourished, and a wonderful city was the result. We shot the video in the center of Amsterdam. It was freezing cold and I couldn’t move my fingers anymore during the last shots, but it was all worth it. I love how the video turned out!
The Gentle Storm live band: Marcela Bovio, Ed Warby, Joost van den Broek, Johan van Stratum, Merel Bechtold and Ferry Duijsens.
