I’ve been too super-busy lately to blog much.
I’ve been enjoying hosting the Songwriter Night every month at Wunschlos glücklich in Würzburg. Some great guests have come through in recent months, Annika Fehling from Sweden in March and Nels Andrews from the USA in April. It’s very inspiring to trade songs with great songwriters and hang out and talk about different career paths and choices.
In January I shared the evening with what’s probably my favorite local band right now, Lick And A Promise. We came up with a take on the Rolling Stones’ Dead Flowers on the spot. Enjoy!
Next Thursday Camille Bloom from Seattle will be at Wunschlos glücklich. The first time she came over to Germany was four, five years ago. Since then she’s been coming over every year, working hard at it, extending her stay and her reach. We’ve caught up most every year sharing a show here or there or meeting somewhere on the road cause I’d be in Osnabrück the day after she played there or something like that.
I was very much looking forward to catching up with her. Then I got an offer to play a full-band gig at the Lab in Stuttgart, a great venue. I was asked to be paert of the For The Sake Of The Song festival, a songwriter-oriented concert series. Needless to say, I couldn’t turn it down.
So while me & The Troublemakers will be rocking in Stuttgart (May 17) and Augsburg the next day (at Hempels, May 18), Camille will be at Wunschlos glücklich in Würzburg with my bud Frank Halbig opening and acting as host.
Catch yourself some live music!
On Thursday I won’t be able to see her cause I’ve got my own gig in Stuttgart that night.
