Thank you

Dear friends, I want to thank YOU the amazing audiences I’ve had up until now on this tour through the German spring. Hamburg, Greifswald, Dresden, Leipzig, Giessen, Hildesheim und gestern Grevenbroich. I feel immensely grateful to be able to continue this adventure.

Ps Tonight I’m playing at Kasette in Düsseldorf – I’ve been looking forward to this since last year.
Oh, and hey, I just got a mail yesterday from a British music magazine. They did a very nice review of the record; look here:!Il-Tempo-Gigante-%2339Watch-it-Watch%2339/cmbz/55096f7a0cf292acc4a7cfa7

Il Tempo Gigante on German national TV in 3sat Kulturzeit

Tour is proceeding and I’ve had such great concerts so far. I want to thank everybody that came to the shows. And there’s luckily many more to come…
I woke up this morning here in Olten, Switzerland to a great surprise:

Il Tempo Gigante is on German national TV in 3sat Kulturzeit!


go to 36:20 and you’ll be able to see my latest video of Watch It Watch (which was shot by the very experienced and steady hand of Mr. André Andersen )  and the upcoming tour-dates for the next 20 gigs in Switzerland, Austria and Germany rolling across der Deutche tv-apparatus… Biss bald!



Digital release, new video on nbhap and upcoming tour

Dear all,

I’ve had a wonderful summertour, and now already in less than a week from now, the falltour will begin. I will be going further down south this time to southern Germany, Switzerland and Austria and I’m very much looking forward to meetings with all of you – new and old faces -within the music. With 25 gigs in little less than a month (thank you Florian!) ending in one of my favorite places to be at the moment, I feel like a very lucky man.

The new album Watch It Watch is finally available worldwide on digital medias e.g. on Itunes:

I have now started cooperating with a new small danish label called Resonans. They are very kind people, and will, by hand, help me to custom-make, art design and ship a very limited edition (LP, 200 copies + CD, 50 copies) of the new record on vinyl and CD out to you (from mid October):

And finally my new little music video (which was shot by the very experienced and steady hand of Mr. André Andersen ) is featured on nbhap. It’s shot in one take (the last of the day, take five) with no cutting or editing (for those who care about such details, I should mention that the guitar-mic ran through a tape-delay machine). I hope you will enjoy listening to the song as much as I did singing it :

I wish you a beautiful day, and I hope to see you down south.

20.9. D-Wuppertal, Bürgerbahnhof
