    3 is OUT NOW!

    '3' is HERE, my third album is finally OUT! It arrived September 27th, 2019 and I had to let it all sink in for a moment... phew!! Tadaaaa Front, Gatefold and Back : I can not tell you how happy I am to see this album out in the world, let alone with my brushstrokes on it. The artwork is part of a larger painting I made and the incredible Aspa Founti spent days with my art and zoomed and cropped and did her magic miracle work to find just the right part for the album cover and the gatefold. It is ...

    Marcus Duran

    Hello again! Thank you for checking in! You might have noticed a few new press shot popping up?! You have not? Check the Gallery for a couple. They are all from a photoshoot I did with the wonderful photographer Marcus Duran. We spoke about my album '3', our lives and music over several weeks and then went into the photo studio together mid this year. We had in mind to create some press shots for my album, but to mainly capture Marcus' visual response to the issues and concerns in my music. He created some beautiful imagery to accompany ...

    Read and Listen to the Radio

    Hello hello! So I wanted to first of all say I LOVE RADIO! And I have a few nice bits for you; one transcript from an interview I did earlier this month in Munich for the BR PULS (german only, sorry!) . I was so pleased to be invited in, as Munich is home it is very special to be shown appreciation and interest for one's creation. Also, earlier this year I was in NYC for the world premiere of some of my pieces with the Brookly Youth Chorus for the Ecstatic Music Festival curated by John Schaefer / WNYC New Sounds. ...

    And so it begins ... 1, 2 and 3!

    I had trust in that spring would bring the burst of buds I was hoping for - and it really did. Trusting and lying fallow was hard and new. I covered myself with snow (literally!) and waited for spring. Now, I couldn't be more excited. I know that this year my album '3', my third album will be released. The first time for it's songs to be played live is next week! And I could not have wished for a better start. It will be in New York City at the Kaufmann Music Center With the incredible Grammy award-winning ...

    Im Kino! In Cinemas Now!

    Merry Christmas everyone and happy holidays, whatever you might celebrate. Today is the day this lovely german movie "Der Junge muss an die frisch Luft" (only in german! sorry!) sees it's cinema release. I have again had the pleasure to work with Oscar-Winning director de force, Caroline Link and have overdubbed the singing parts of the female lead. I am at awe how Caroline works and what she is able to get out of people, namely ME ;) It is a pleasure to hear myself on the big screen and not notice in the slightest. Now, we have done this before ...

SO this WORLD PREMIERE is on WNYC New Sounds by John Schaefer. Tonight's show airs in NY at 11...
