"It is wonderful to be able experience art without understanding how it was meant or what makes it good." (Kim Boekbinder said that during an interview I did with her) I might not have the biggest knowledge about music but I have a great passion for it. Passion is what counts.
I live in Berlin, Germany (born, raised and still resident) and this is my personal blog about music and other things that cross my way. Things I love to be exact. And even though I am German and my English is still not perfect, this blog is in English.
I am incredible sorry for the lack of words lately! I have been very busy preparing a series of concerts me and some friends and family are planning and it is all very exciting and totally new! So, basically my mom and I had the idea of making concerts at her restaurant called “Kartoffelkiste” (find it here - link to google maps). One day I have approached Sam of Sofa Salon asking her for help as none of us knew how to start and the result is called Kisten Konzerte! We are focused on Berlin based musicians.
The first one is Eric Eckhart - singer songwriter with music that doesn’t just fit into one genre. It’s a mix of Pop and Rock with a blend of blues and Country every once in a while. I really like him. His last album “This Is Where It Starts” is rather wonderful. It kind of reflects his history for me. How he gave up his job and everything he had in the USA for a life as a musician here in Europe and the feelings he must have had in that time. He is going to play on the 7. July with a violinist at the restaurant. The entrance is free and it starts at 9 pm.

And look at the beautiful poster Sam made for it:
I am so excited! And to make everything even more great I’ll be at Alcopopalooza in London on Saturday.
Have a good weekend and hope to see you at the Kisten Konzerte,
