"From a Living Room" is an endearing musical experience. Above all, it contains songs, lyrics and music composed and performed by two artists with an inherent logic. Sem Jansen is a conservatory guitarist, born in 1992, quickly moving towards roots music, folk and blues and a member since 2011 of the Leif de Leeuw Band. Born in 1995, Leif de Leeuw was also a precocious guitarist and made his pact with the devil after discovering and learning Robert Johnson's songs by heart. Winner of several awards as a blues guitarist in his country, in 2015 the EBU proclaimed them the best European blues band and the following year they took part in the IBC in Memphis, which resulted in the publication of their first album in 2016. "From A Living Room", their first work of both musicians as a duo, took place during sessions in 2023 in the hall of Sem's house as a result of the performances as a duo that both performed during the pandemic. The album is a delight in all its extension, inspiration and generosity in songs full of light and enthusiasm, suggestive melodies constructed by two exciting artists with an incredible treatment of the guitars and the lucidity with which they are mixed in their hands. An album to sit calmly, leave your mind blank and enjoy the uninhibited music of these two guys in a state of grace.
