24 Bit Sounds Sweeeet!

First of all I want to thank all, who joined my mailing list so far. I really appreciate the support and interest in my music!

As some probably know, I record and produce myself and I really like the sound of uncompressed HiFi sound. Unfortunately most download stores, platforms and CDs are not optimized for 24 Bit files (my latest songs were recorded and mastered with 24 Bit) and sound quality simply gets lost for most listeners. Therefore I decided to give away some of the tracks in a lossless format for free.

You just need to sign up for the mailing list. I will be sending secret links to the files from time to time.

One of the first songs will be The Comfort of Absence, which I just released on SoundCloud. It was the first time for me to record a trombone, many thanks to Michael Hupperts, who plays this instrument so beautifully.

Idaho – Music Video

On YouTube we just released the video for Idaho, the first single of my album.

Many thanks to the awesome Ruben Kempter and Jan Wittekindt, who directed and shot it! It was a great and exhausting experience, you guys rock! :-) Only two weeks left until the digital release.

I’m already working on a CD version, more news to be announced soon 😉

Album Release Date: September 2nd 2014
