About me and music

My music testifies my inner yearnings, my observations and feelings in my life.

My inner drive was and is the search for truth, peace and righteousness.

When I look at our world with open eyes and an open heart, often both embrace me – joy and sadness.

So my music is melancholy and hope at the same time.

My roots:
Everything started with my family and street music. Later, I performed solo on various occasions. What has always remained until today is the piano and the singing. So I became a composer for piano pieces. I am still singing, writing songs and lyrics for musical projects and making film music.

Essentially, I want to touch and comfort people with my music – it should animate others to reflect and give them peace and hope. I regard this inner desire as a gift from God – that is my faith. It has always been the impulse for my music. I realize that for most people this sounds ridiculous and not contemporary.

Nevertheless, I see myself obliged to give a recommendation, although of course every person has to go his own way. My way is to love God and my fellow human beings with all my heart, my whole mind, and my whole being, as Jesus Christ set a living example.

"Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself."
Matthew 22:37-39
