Garden of Grief is a one-man-project by Boronian Sturmfels. The idea rose up during the Summer of 2008. Back then the concept included session memebers for guitars and bass. That plan was ommited early in 2009 when the decision to work alone was made. Of course the newly achieved guitar skills were not sufficient for recording the songs that had already been written to be played by session members, so a set of new songs had to be created for the first release.
