I was born into a family with a long musical tradition. They were mainly classical and church musicians, but my older siblings’ musical taste soon sparked my interest in jazz and pop music. Being an emotional guy, I was especially moved by the melodic pop and rock music of bands like The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, and artists like Billy Joel, Eric Clapton and Elton John.
My father’s untimely death had a big impact on my view of the world and life in general. When translating that into music, I often find myself writing about the struggles we all have to face and probably recognise, i.e. about love, or the lack of it, and everything that is wrong in the world. But also about the absurdity and immense beauty of life, etc.
I have had my share of rock ‘n roll with my band Mirage, with whom I have been fortunate enough to make music at many beautiful places on this planet, and which has brought me true friendship.
This is just to give you an impression of my life. I hope, in any case, that I can convey these ‘vibes’ to the listener through my music…
