Residency #6 @ Prachtwerk, Berlin – with Nicolas Bamberger

Thank you to everyone who came to the last Residency with Fabian Simon!

I’ve got Residency #6 on Monday, June 12th (the 2nd last residency!) with on of my favourite pianists, Nicolas Bamberger from Neuchätel, Switzerland. He’s only been in Berlin 6 months, but he has been very active in the local jazz scene since his arrival. He’ll be playing his set with Andi Haberl on drums. Should be a powerful duo. Can’t wait for it!

I’ll be joined once again with Nils Ostendorf on trumpet/keys, Andi Haberl on drums, Pete Petelle on percussion, and Marlène Colle on guest vocals.

Hope to see you on the 12th!

Doors at 7pm, show will start with Nicolas at 8pm, us at 9pm, over by 10pm! €7 at the door.

Residency #3 @ Prachtwerk – Berlin (with Charlotte Brandi)

Hello friends,

I have Residency #3 coming up next Monday, Feb 27th at Prachtwerk here in Berlin. This time I’ll be joined by the lovely and talented Charlotte Brandi. Here’s a little write up about her:

Charlotte Brandi is the founding member of Berlins indie duo “Me And My Drummer” (Matze Pröllochs on drums) with which she released two critically acclaimed albums. With their single “You´re A Runner”, the duo received extensive play on radio stations across Europe in 2012 and made an unprecedented run through Europe’s indie scene with over 300 shows in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Prague, Oslo, Vienna, Bratislava, amongst many others.

The singer with a “voice like lavender, flames and varnish” (Spiegel Online) discovered the electric guitar two years ago and since then has not been able to get enough of it.
Charlotte Brandi’s solo music is reminiscent of the sounds of Leslie Feist, PJ Harvey and Kate Bush, and achored in her lyrical explorations of the fragility of desire and attitudes. Brandi seems to be asking repeatedly, if we can actually trust ourselves in our wishes, our dreams, our capabilities, and our actions. Her songs echo a long, arduous journey from subconsciousness into daylight.

Doors at 7:30pm.
Show starts at 8pm sharp. Over by 10pm
€7 at the door.

We’d love to see you!


Yours and yours,
