Happy New Year

2022 started with a half canceled tour due to the pandemic. Thankfully two concerts were left that helped us prepare for the recording session of our new album In-Between Flow at Riverside Studios Cologne mid January. During the year we released three singles, five music videos and finally the full album at Challenge Records International. We played 27 concerts all over Germany and travelled 12011 km. Looking back at 2022 it was a very tough year. Therefore I‘m even more thankful for what we accomplished! Thanks to everyone involved.

IN-BETWEEN FLOW out tomorrow

In-Between Flow describes the time where one has left the old state but not yet reached the new. This can be energetic, exhausting, fun, scary, liberating or quite stressful. Leaning into this uncertainty can push you forward into the next chapter, where you can sattle down before the wave catches you again…

Ms Ludgate out now

The third single of IN-BETWEEN FLOW is out now.

Ms Ludgate is inspired by my current favorite TV series Parks and Recreation. April Ludgate played by the amazing Aubrey Plaza is an introvert, a desinterested person and hates everything and everyone. During the seasons she evolves to an open minded, caring and funny human being. Check out Ms Ludgate on your favorite streaming platform.

Slosetta out now

The first single Slosetta of my upcoming album IN-BETWEEN FLOW is out now.

One year ago I took part in a latte art contest. I was the only participant who did not work in a café as a barista. With more than 500 virtual viewers on YouTube the situation was quite stressful for me. But I won the first round with my tulip. The task for the second round was to create a slosetta with oat milk. Mission failed. So I had to write a song for the slosetta. You can listen to this first single of IN-BETWEEN FLOW on all streaming platforms.
