Life without music is no life at all! – Friedrich Nietzsche
Music has always been a big part of my life and I can’t imagine life without it. When I was a kid, I learned to play the piano, when I was a teenager I started playing the drums and then switched to the acoustic guitar. The guitar has been my instrument of choice since I was 15 years old and although I learned to play a few others along my way (e.g. Djembe, Taiko, Ukulele) playing my guitar and singing to it is my passion. I love singing in public as my voice, the tune I choose and my body language can express my message and my feelings and simultaneously I can pick up the atmosphere in the audience to develop good vibes and lots of fun. Therefore I have been a solo and street performer for almost 20 years now.
As a solo musician I play a variety of songs. I write and play my own songs, but creating my own cover versions of well-known songs has become very inspiring for me, too. My style could be best described as a mix of ska, reggae, Folk rock and singer/songwriter style.
You can book me for any event where you would like to have some fun and easy-going musical entertainment. I have played at all sorts of events from birthday parties to company anniversaries, from charity events to city music festivals.
Here are a few songs to give you an idea of my style:
FLirting With Disaster
Flirting With Disaster is a band project I started back in May 2017. We are four musicians that couldn’t be more different in their roots, which is why our sound is so funky: one classic brass student who eventually turned to brass-rock, one acoustic guitar street musician, one punk rock lead singer and a psytrance music artist.
Together we develop our very own version of cover songs and create funky up beat music that just invites and really motivates people to dance and have a good time.
Over the last two years we have played at several street music festivals, city fairs, conventions, private parties and even a christening. Our music has no peer group, it’s fun for everyone! If you book us for your party or any special event, you will have a good time for sure!
Here are some songs to listen in:
We do have a German website and an Instagram channel, check those out if you like!
