For the "Long Night of the Museums" in Böblingen, the Galerie Kulturnetzwerk Blaues Haus has booked us for a special program: my father will be showing his new exhibition "Next Door To The Blues" (11/17 until 12/31) while my band and I will be playing both original songs of mine and classics that match the theme of the evening. Doors open at 19:00, the programme starts at 20:00.
Besides recording my own music, I also like to pay tribute to my idols by interpreting their songs. Not only do I hope these songs will be sung and played for generations to come because they are so beautiful, I also learn a lot each time I work on them. And oh, how much there is to learn from Bob Dylan! His lyrics are full of poetry and yet his language is as so clear. The pure and precious melodies go straight into your heart.
"Make You Feel My Love" was written by Bob Dylan and appeared on his album „Time Out of Mind“ (1997). It was first released, however, in a version recorded by Billy Joel earlier that year. Many great artists have sung the song since, among them Garth Brook (1998) and Adele (2008) whose versions both landed the song in the charts again.
This video was shot at our home studio in October 2018.

Every last Monday of the month, the amazing singer Onita Boone is hosting the „VIP-Lounge“ in Cologne with various artists from the international music scene at „Café Noa“ (Mastrichter Straße). Here, „VIP “ is not short for „Very Important Person“, but stands for „Voices in Perfection“. The Live-Band "Unusual Suspects" and moderator Jasmin Assen guide the singers and audience through the night. Entrance is free, seats are limited.
Theme of the month: Motown
Recently aired again and therefore once again current news:
Wow, what a surprise! I thought, I was supposed to take hobby musician "Matthew Bradley" by the hand, give him insights to the reality of the music business and help him decide if he wants to make this passion his occupation. And then he takes off his beard and wig and is ANGELO KELLY! When on top of that, he revealed that he would help me to finance my album and be my mentor, I could not believe my blessing!
