Today I startet with recordings for two brand new songs as "Ralli Rock & The Moan of the Sky", that will be released as an exclusive single worldwide.
These songs won't be featured on the upcoming album, which is already finished, but due to Corona restrictions (we can't send promo packages overseas...a real pity) we have to postpone the album again (and again).
Anyway, the upcoming, exclusive single (two raw sounding juke joint blues songs) is at least something and the songs are also meant to shorten the waiting time for the upcoming and postponed album.
Btw., I am also still working on another solo album (with reduced instrumentation), that I mentioned earlier. I am not sure, when it's finished though.
So in the end, there will be enough new material in the near future.
Thanks for your interest.
Stay safe and stay tuned

I can tell you that I have worked hard for the last two years on the new album.
ALL tracks have been recorded and the first mastering process ended last week. Now the very last step in mastering takes place.
Due to Corona crisis I can not release the new album right now.
The reason are stupid problems like postage problems.
It is still not possible to send a simple CD promo package to the USA or Australia and other oversea countries.
For a simple promo package we had to pay 60€(!!!) for one CD.
We have to send many, many CDs out, so this is not possible.
I hope this crisis and follow up crises are soon over.
Therefore I decided to record a few raw and simple blues tracks. Just a man and his guitar and his foot-stomping. I may release these songs as a new EP this year.
I keep you informed!.
Stay tuned and and stay true to me

Side A: Don't Panic, It's Just a Pandemic
Side AA: Oh Jolene (alternative mix 2020)
The new double A Side single is NOW on all platforms (Apple is coming soon), even on Spotify, and I really hate them for various reasons (my label forced me this time)
Some people will most likely misinterpret the song "Don't Panic, It's Just a Pandemic"
It's a fun song, no denial song! Keep that in mind!!
I certainly do not want to make fun of the pandemic.
Tragedies stay tragic, but never lose your sense of humour, especially in times of crisis & curiosity.
If you feel sad, just play this little tune and make it your daily pandemic anthem.
If you're drunk and in good mood, do the same. It works for each situation ;-)
If you like the song, please download and buy it. It comes together with a brand new version of "Oh Jolene", another little punky glam rocker (originally unofficially released in an older version in December 2019)
Your downloads will help me going through this weird situation of being an unpaid musician who is currently not able to perform live.
And btw, the red light girls want me to pay my outstanding accounts :(

Due to Covid-19 I have to postpone my long awaited & overdue new album again :(
The most part of the money reaches us, if you buy directly at our Label, at Bandcamp or Ebay
-->EBAY (different projects/bands):
-->CD Baby (CD, MP3 and one exclusive single MORNING LIGHT)
oder ne CD kaufen. Die bietet wenigsten etwas zum Anfassen!
Am schnellsten erreicht uns das Geld bei Verkäufen über unser Label, Bandcamp oder über Ebay!
-->CD Baby (CD, MP3 und die exklusive Single "MORNING LIGHT")
(wobei ich oft Teile an Ärzte ohne Grenzen weitergebe. Momentan brauch ich die Kohle leider selber)
PS: Für uns Musiker ist dies eine existenzielles Anliegen!

Wow, six songs streamed and I earned...1,7
I had immediately invested this nice bit of money into my next ...string (more streaming necessary to get at least one string paid ;-))
People, buy the CDs. They last longer, look and feel nicer, they often include the lyrics and the musicians and labels earn at least a little bit more.
Making real music with real instruments and recording and releasing albums is actually not really inexpensive.
Keep the variety in music alive. Support your musicians & bands!
Support the magic of real music.
Don't support the modern slavedriver!!!!
Cheers, brothers and sisters
