    Waylon is a Dutch soul singer. It took two years, five studios and three countries, but Waylon's second album is finally here. "After All" contains eleven tracks, each one of them an ode to love. Do not expect sugar coated, candle lit, puppy love songs, because, according to Waylon, "love puts all emotions on edge, the good and the bad. Therefore it is such a nice thing to sing about. There's always the danger that you succumb to using clich's, but that's not the case on the songs on this album. You have to have lived first, stumbled and fallen and gotten up again, and you must have met that one special person, to get to the core. To know that that entire scope of emotions are at the same time bizarre, fantastic and contradictory."

    And that tour d'amour includes more than just Waylon's matters of the heart. It's also been typical for the way "After All" has come to be. The production process starts in the London Kensaltown Studios, the same place where "Wicked Ways" was recorded in 2009. "I thought: never change a winning team. And although the music and lyrics came quite easily, I had my doubts about the sound. I did not want an extension of my debut album. I wanted more." He then tries it with his childhood heroes of the country band Big House in Bakersfield, California. Again: there's a click, but not the result he is looking for. Waylon decides to go to London once again, this time to try another producer. Everything and everyone is ready, when one day before departure suddenly music legend Steve Jordan calls: "That man has worked with all the greatest artists, so if he wants to work with you, you don't say no."

    But after one month of trying and struggling in New York, Waylon returns to the Netherlands disillusioned and confused. "This time there just hadn't been any connection, musically or spiritually. When I came home in March, I was exasperated. I had lost interest in the album and I actually wanted to throw everything away. I felt that I had failed." With the support of his band, Waylon eventually ends up in a studio in the picturesque Dutch harbor town of Volendam, where they have a few weeks of eating, sleeping, recording, and especially laughing a lot. And after that all it requires is one last trip to London, to the studio where the whole process began, to straighten out the album. The result: "After All". About that name Waylon says: "After All" refers to a song on the album, but it also sums up my feelings about the last two years. What have I learned of everything that has happened, what has that whole trip meant to me?"
