ABOUT

INTRODUCTION
Writing, recording and producing songs are only one creative outlet, as Sven also does all the photo shooting and loves creating visual concepts for cd‘s, websites etc. Sven shoots and creates all videos by himself and additional to lyric videos, performance videos he also does the odd equipment review, all available on his youtube channel. He enjoys the luxury of a very broad musical taste - from pop / rock up to Metallica he also loves classical music. Not entirely surprising for a studied musicologist…
 I'm much more creative and inspired when there are other people around me and I'm bouncing ideas off.  - MIKE RUTHERFORD on forming Mike & Mechanics

MIRRORS NEVER LIE

 02/11/2016 The first track singer Udo Maurer and myself wrote together. Based on an instrumental I am amazed how Udo came up with his ideas.

CAPTAIN OF MY SOUL

 20/11/2016 Opener and hardest track of ‚Happy Turns To Blue‘ this song was written inspired by an African rhythm drummer Magnus Brandell offered.

ON MY WAY

 02/02/2017 More commercial rocker, this is another favorite from the ‚Happy‘ album. Again Udo did a super job coming up with melodies.

DARKNESS AND JOY

 26/02/2016 Darkness And Joy deserved a lyric video - it is one of the favorite tracks from ‚III‘. It was even played on London radio stations several times.

DRIVE ALBUM PROMO

 01/11/2012 High Road Easy‘s 2nd album ‚Drive‘ got an album promotion with several songs to listen to - it is one of the most played videos from HRE.

REVIEW VIDEO

 30/03/2017 For years I have been looking for a classic stratocaster type of guitar. Former Fender master builder John Page‘s The Ashburn finally delivers - this is my review.

I CAN SEE

 16/07/2017 One of the tracks from the ‚Happy Turns To Blue‘ album everyone seems to like. It features the amazing vocals by Lena Maurer. I love the 5/4 rhythm drummer Magnus plays.

LATEST REVIEW (in GERMAN)

 05/09/2017 Excerpt: „Eben durch seinen Vortrag gewinnen die Kompositionen eine besondere Kennung, während der Namensgeber des Projekts auf hohem Niveau songdienlich spielt, wie es von Joe Satriani bis Michael Sagmeister so einige Größen vormachen. Zwei Bassisten, ein fester Schlagzeuger und nicht zuletzt Gastsängerin Lena Maurer halfen Horlemann letztlich dabei, "Happy Turns To Blue" die Atmosphäre eines richtigen Bandalbums zu verleihen - ein großes Plus, besonders unter ansonsten "einsamen" Solomuckern. FAZIT: Statt Akrobatik Dienst am prototypischen Song, so wie er sein sollte - auf natürliche Weise zugänglich, emotional greifbar und selbstverständlich auch in handwerklichen Belangen ansprechend … SVEN HORLEMANN erfüllt diese Anforderungen mit "Happy Turns To Blue" bravourös und ist somit viel, viel mehr als nur ein lokaler Möchtegern-Gitarrenheld.“
