German-American based in Vienna, Austria.
Born and raised in Frankfurt by a Stones-loving German father and an American
Beatlemaniac mother I fast became a music enthusiast for sure. In the
course of the years and during my various studies I was
lucky enough to have lived in Tokyo, Paris and Avignon for longer periods of time.
These city's definitely still feel like a bunch of jazz to me, as does Vienna, the city in
which I currently reside.
I'm in the midst of finishing my degree in musicology, whilst enjoying the vast local
Jazz is my passion and the guitar my vehicle.
My Jazz Story
Published on: 2018-02-01
Jazz came pretty late to me. I was always crazy about music but only got to know the jazz side of things when I was about 18 and even
then I only scratched the surface of a
vast and untamable universe. Since I had made the jump coming from progressive-rock, my first jazz groups were strongly fusion
natured. Return To Forever, Pat Metheny or
Mahavishnu Orchestra were at the centre of my universe until finally the rest started to make sense as well. Not growing up listening
to jazz in the very least really made it
an intriguing ride to get in to. And boy has it been one worth taking ever since!
