Strawberry Fields is a rock band from Poland. Created in 2008 by Wojtek Szadkowski (Collage, Satellite, Peter Pan) fascinated by the voice of Robin (Marta Kniewska). Strawberry Fields' music is a strange blend of the old and the new, of rock guitars and soft keyboards, loops and psychedelic soundscapes. But what is most important here is the magical voice of Robin, a beautiful female lead singer. On the band's debut album entitled Rivers Gone Dry" Robin is supported by the intelligent guitar play of Sarhan Kubeisi (Satellite), simple yet effective bass lines of Jarek Michalski (Satellite), and Wojtek Szadkowski's keyboards and drums. Guest appearance was done by keyboardist Krzys Palczewski (Satellite) Who is now a member of the band. It's a perfect album for the lovers of such bands as Goldfrapp, Portishead or Massive Attack. Marta's voice will also satisfy fans of Anneke van Giersbergen (The Gathering/ Agua De Annique).But you can find strong pop melodies and a bit of Enya, Pink Floyd too. Robin: "This album is my debut as a singer and lyrics writer. It's a new and thrilling experience for me. Writing lyrics makes you a part of the song, makes the song a part of you. I wanted them to be a part of me. All lyrics are about things that I find important at this stage of my life, things that made me the person I am now. Most, but not all, of them are based on my own experience and reflect the thoughts that have been haunting me for a long time and which I have had no opportunity to reveal or would not normally reveal. They refer to the existential unrest, end of earthly life and immense longing for reconciliation. Writing these lyrics made me feel relieved to some extent, as if through them I could reach the ones they are addressed to. But there are also some more optimistic ones, which praise human relations as the mainstay.
