Q: First of all we want to say welcome to you.
Ans: Thank You
Q: How did you come into music industry?
Ans: Music also has been a huge part throughout my whole life!!
At an age from 6 to 12 my parents made me learn to play the piano. I didn´t like the lessons much, since it was mostly classical music I had to play. Today I´m so grateful, they forced me to!
I bought my first guitar at an age of 14, but never had lessons…all my guitar knowledge is self educated. Instead of watching TV, we, my wife, my daughter and I, did spend the many evenings singing.
Sometimes we also sang some covers at family and friends events…
January 2018, just a few days after New Year, we received the message, our trainer and friend Dean lost his fight against cancer. This was the first time ever for me to get a pen in my hand and write a song to deal with the unexpected loss and death of a loved one. The name of the song: „Push That Horn“.
Just one month later, on a cold february sunday, I found my good old Shorty dead on his paddock. He was absolutely fine in the morning, when I fed him. The second unexpected loss in a very short time.
Since “Push That Horn“ helped me to deal with Dean Terry‘s death, I thought writing a song for Shorty could do the same for me! “Carry The Wind“ was actually the second song that I wrote in my life. In the end it was therapeutic, though I couldn‘t sing it the first weeks after I wrote it, cause it made me break down in tears every time I tried.
I couldn´t get the picture of him laying there out of my head, so I left the ranch for a few weeks in march to Nashville, TN, to scratch one point off of my bucket list, which was vocal coaching in Nashville. I found vocal coach Kristin K. Smith´s website on the internet and booked daily lessons for 2 weeks.
During the coaching lessons, I sang covers. Three days before my departure Kristin asked me, if I also write songs myself.
So I sang „Push That Horn“ and after the last tone she said: „That song has to be on radio!“
Today, she´s my producer and Co-Writer.
After the debut single and release of „Push That Horn“ I wrote more songs last summer, of which we recorded 10 in November 2018 in Nashville, TN. Five more followed in April 2019.
Meanwhile 8 of the songs are available on all digital platforms like: ITunes, Spotiry, Deezer, etc.
Q: Who was your inspiration for music
Ans: Mostly Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson and Dave Dudley, for my Southern Rock Songs Blackberry Smoke, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bon Jovi.
Q: Say something about your musical journey?
Ans: My music turned my whole life upside down. Nearly every weekend I play another gig, two of my songs had been released on US Radio, both hitting the National Radio Hits Charts Top10. I am honored that so many people seem to like what I am doing.
Q: Who helped you most in your journey?
Ans: That is my vocal-coach, producer and co-writer Kristin K. Smith from Nashville.
Q: Who gave you pieces of advice?
Ans: That was also Kristin K. Smith.
Q: What do you do now a days?
Ans: I am releasing one single every six weeks, I am playing a lot of gigs and writing new music.
Q: Let us know something about your future projects
Ans: On January 24th my debut album will drop, so I have all hands full to do to prepare the release
Q: What is your message to your fans?
Ans: Without you, my music would not be heard! I am so thankful for all your support.
Q: Any message for new artist?
Ans: Be real, be you and always try to be a better version of yourself than yesterday.
