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 the CD booklets, websites etc. Therefore it comes at no surprise that Sven shoots and creates all videos by himself. His youtube channel features lyric videos, performance videos and the odd equipment review. Sven enjoys the luxury of a broad musical taste that ranges from metal / rock / pop to classical music. Not entirely surprising for a studied musicologist who is a rocker at heart.
... everything we did was a natural reflection of who we were and what kind of players we were
and what kind of dreams we had. 
- GEDDY LEE, Rush (Rolling Stone, 2018)

MIRRORS NEVER LIE

 02/11/2016 The first track singer Udo Maurer and I wrote. Based on an instrumental I am amazed how Udo came up with his ideas making this a great song.

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 TURNS TO BLUE album. Again Udo did a super job coming up with melodies.

High Road Easy

DARKNESS AND JOY

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

High Road Easy

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.

Guitar Review

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.

One thing I did come away from AC/DC with is that it's about the feel. It sounds simple, but it's not about the technicality of it. It's about the swing and the feel of it.   - SIMON WRIGHT (ex-AC/DC)

Wonderful Things

 16/07/2018 WONDERFUL THINGS from the EP I 'Wonderful Things', released June 2018. A lovely track. And shot in a great location for a video.

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.“

LATEST: FINAL RELEASE IN 2018

LATEST VIDEO: GOING BEYOND

 28/10/2018 GOING BEYOND is the first video I shot promoting the EP COME IN. To me one of the best instrumental songs I ever wrote. It was shot in the Rhine valley on the last summer day in 2018.

TRUE TO YOUR SOUL

 21/07/2018 The first video promoting WONDERFUL THINGS and one of the best songs Udo and I ever wrote. We had great fun making this video for you, too!

Live in the studio!

WISHES

 31/03/2018 This is me revisiting the lovely ballad WISHES from the 2009 album IN.COM.PLETE. All recorded live, I play my ZEAL Custom Hydra into a Kemper.

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. Enjoy!

TINY PACKAGES (EP III)

 21/12/2018 So here we are at the end of the year 2018. And what do you get? More riffs, more gain, more everything. As promised the EP TINY PACKAGES marks the final release of the trilogy. It follows the EPs WONDERFUL THINGS and COME IN. Beware, as this EP rocks hard and heavy. Udo delivered stellar vocals, and the guitars are as sharp as they can be… Check them out for free at bandcamp.
