released March 26, 2011

Kleines Mädchen zupft leise, verträumte Melodien auf der Akustische und singt mit zarter Stimme über Glück und Frieden, die kleinen und die großen Sorgen, über Gott und die Welt, über Mutter Natur und dem Leben im Allgemeinen, dem Paradies in der Hand. Singer-Songwriter und Folk. Es gibt so viele singende kleine und große Mädchen wie Esther Quade aus Berlin. Nun ist es aber so, das mir Ihr Album “Stretch the Coast” besonders gut gefällt. Wegen dem Licht, der Sonne, dem imaginären Strand, den Songs. Den Düften um uns herum, der frischen Brise, der Stille, dem Tag und der Nacht.
(Schallgrenzen)

Zu den ersten, die mir über dieses Portal geschrieben haben, gehört diese fantastische Musikern Esther-Maria Quade. Tolle Gitarrenmusik mit einer gefühlvollen Stimme, die süchtig macht und träumerisch den Hörer nach wenigen Liedern in Stille zurück lässt
(der Impuls)

Irgendwie zerbrechlich wirkt Esther Quade auf der Bühne. Aber nur im ersten Moment. Scheinbar beiläufig zupft sie auf der elektrischen Gitarre einige Akkorde. Und genauso beiläufig beginnt sie, mit ihrem Spiel das Publikum in ihren Bann zu ziehen. Immerhin 500 Songs hat die 30-Jährige mittlerweile geschrieben. Beeinflusst wurde die Songschreiberin, die schon als Kind einen Literaturwettbewerb gewann und im Kirchenchor sang, unter anderem von Prince, Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Nick Cave, Björk, Tori Amos und Ani Di Franco.

2001 kam Esther Quade für eine Tanzausbildung nach Berlin und begann in Bars und Clubs aufzutreten. Auf ihrem neuen Album „Stretch the Coast“ singt sie „poetische Popsongs“, in denen sich viel um Liebe, Gefühle und Zwischenmenschliches dreht. Text und Ton haben etwas Traumhaftes. Ihre Stimme ist zart verträumt und besitzt gleichzeitig kraftvolle Tiefe. Schon als Jugendliche gab sie Konzerte. Damals verkaufte sie ihre Musik auf selbstbespielten Kassetten. Heute hat sie ein eigenes Label: „Lucky Army Records“. „Stretch the Coast“ ist bereits Esther Quades viertes Album, aber das erste im Studio produzierte.

Für die Künstlerin und begeisterte Fotografin ist ihre Musik eine Landschaft, die sich durch mit Stimme und Text eingefügte „Pinselstriche“ ständig verändert. Weil sie an Songs, die sie nicht mehr umarbeiten kann, schnell das Interesse verliert, hat Quade versucht, in Improvisation entstandene Momentaufnahmen auf das Album zu übertragen. Eine Art Puzzlespiel, das sich auf wundersame Weise zu einem vielschichtigen Soundteppich zusammenfügt.

Mit „Stretch the Coast“ will Esther Quade „den Strand ausdehnen“ und Raum schaffen. Einen Platz im Kopf und Herzen finden, wo Probleme ihre Macht verlieren. Manchmal weht am Meer der Sängerin eine sanfte Brise, manchmal tobt ein heftiger Sturm. Es geht um die Suche neuer Perspektiven, aber auch darum, einmal tief durchzuatmen. Ein Strandspaziergang, der sich lohnt.

Track Name: Landscape
In a beautiful landscape
I open my eyes
I see u dancing in the melting sky
I would like to
touch ur side
but I`m too busy
spending my time

I want ur eyes on mine
I want to see u
I want to see u dance
I want to see u smile
Track Name: Glory
Today I saw morning glory
I saw smiling faces, too
I saw children playing fairy
I saw dogs chasing dogs

So if u don`t come back
I´m gonna be ok

Today I tasted sweet cherry
I drank coffee
I saw the news
I saw a couple that was about to get married
I saw an old lady underground

So if u don` t come back
I´m gonna be ok

And it feels so good
It feels so good it feels good
Track Name: Stretch the coast
Sundays I miss u the most
sundays u hang around like a ghost
u pop up in the middle of the afternoon
U dish out my memories as if I had nothing else to do

I stretch the coast
I look at the horizon
I breathe in through the nose
and wait until ur ship changed coast

Somedays I can`t get out of bed
I wake up with the memoriy of ur head
and that´s just half the good news `cause u stay up late
u`re always in time for my late night show`s debate

No way! U won`t get my kiss
No way! u won`t get my
I already put on a new record
and u` re not in the movie that I came here for
Track Name: Groove
Do u remember the words that were spoken
Do u remember my voice in ur head
Is there a seat for me in ur memory tv show?
Is there a missing link on ur profile page?

I wannna move I wanna groove I move on!
I`m dancing in my footsteps, that`s the place I belong!
I wanna move I wanna groove I move on!

Do u remember the grab of my hips
Do u remember the taste f my lips
Do u keep a message in ur mobile phone?
Will u keep trace of me, do u smel me when u`re home?

How do u feel late at night with emptiness around?
How do u feel in the morning without that familiar sound?
Will we soon forget and keep the memory still?
I wish I had a reset button or at least a wishing well!
Track Name: Gold
I know it does feel muddy
U want to beat the street
But what about ur heartbeat?
Do u feel in between?

I know ur dreams seem as far away as distant stars
But they don`t give up on u
U are always right there where u are

There`s nothing wrong with taking the good advice
Nothing wrong with reaching out ur hands for high five
What is it with independence that u can`t be loved?
What is it with u and golden love?

Maybe that Lady was right when she said lighten up
There`s always something happening
How can u not be loved?

What was it with golden love, baby?
What is it with ur golden love?
Track Name: Island
nobody knows ur way home
everybody stumbles over the same stone
and the women in the shopping mall grow old and cold
it doesn`t matter if u sell cookies or leather
if u´`re a star or a newborn
big or small shy or tall

nobody takes u home
nobody takes off ur shoes
nobody carries u to bed and lies u down

be there an island for urself
be there and be good to urself

nobody tells u what to do
everybody`s sitting over their own food
and there`s no sign on no wall
it doesn`t matter if it`s a good or bad weather
rain or shine
urs or mine
Track Name: Spring
something tells me
everything`s gonna be alright
turn my head to the sun
dance in front of the light
like an umbrella u spread ur charme
like under an umbrella I`m safe from harm

I look up to the ceiling and I see only water
I look up to ur face and love has grown

u bring spring
u bring sun

I`m not sure if this is right
what do the statistics say?
I`m not sure if this is ok
I`m in heaven everyday
how can I make it right?
I haven`t learned it on the way
How can take advice
if I don`t know what they say?
Track Name: Diamond
take a moment or two
go where the pretty girls go
u can take a nap in the sunshine
or just run and hide

I know u`re gonna find
some peace of mind
I know u´re gonna find
u r worth more than a diamond

u can call a friend if u want to
go to the movies
u can buy some ice cream
or just watch tv

U r worth more than a diamond
worth more than a star
go get some morning papers
u`re gonna b a star

just because he took his love from u
does not mean u take ur love from u, too
Even though ur soul feels shattered
doesn`t mean it`s gonna b an ice cube

take a moment or two
go where the pretty girls go
U can go and get some new haircut
or just let it grow
Track Name: Lucky
I don`t want to steal u
I just want to feel u
I can`t believe that this is happening to me
When u` re gone
I miss u

I know u`re not the one because u belong to another
I know u`re not the one because u`re sleeping with her
I know u`re not the one because u really, really love her
lucky me lucky her

How come u are so handsome?
Is that even allowed?
I just need to spend some more time with u and ur presence
I`m not gonna figure it out

How come I want u this much?
I mentioned it before
I`m gonna drop the cup it`s too hot
I better get down on the floor

because this is not working
everybody can tell
u don`t want to know what I`ve been dreaming about
u don`t want to buy things u cannot sell
