“If an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends. If broken by an inside force, life begins”

It is named “Forces” the new record of the Claudio Jr De Rosa 4et, sparkling and surprising band based in the Netherlands. This record, based on the aforementioned quote, is a personal journey in which new concepts, emotions, challenges, spring out from De Rosa’s musical voice.

If “Groovin’ Up!” was a fresh and energetic statement, in “Forces” De Rosa has a deeper, more thoughtful, always joyful approach to his musical journey, and relies on a broader spectrum of experiences, emotions, and hopes for the future.
