Mr. Thomas Wachter from Kronach/Germany is also a former fellow student of Alex and ex-member of the Regensburger Domspatzen. He has produced a huge number of unpublished songs with Alex. Only few listeners have heard a couple of these songs and repeatedly expressed their sadness about these songs not having been released. For Reflection, Alex and Thomas chose the only song “Sweet And Fine” from a huge repertoire of more than 120 songs. This catchy record lives of Thomas’ lyrical voice, the sentimental hook lines and the warming, nostalgic character. Just for this, the album Reflection represents an incalculable rarity.
