Singer-songwriter Johannes Sigmond played in bands for several years before going solo in 2006. In 2007 as Blaudzun, a name taken from a relatively unknown Danish cyclist from the 70s, he began working on a special collection of songs originally intended to be a soundtrack for a Midnight car drive. He recorded most of the tracks in his Amsterdam home, several studios throughout Netherlands, and even added some sessions in Barcelona, a city he describes as having "a melancholic and sunny character that resonates through my life and work." In 2008 V2 Records released his self-titled debut album. The following year he completed Seadrift Soundmachine-a collaboration with The City of Prague Orchestra.
