After the album „Curious Times“, which I composed with Oneida James, I wanted to do a new project with new musicians. Oneida James and Norbert Fimpel were also playing with Joe Cocker on his latest „Fire it up“ tour. But they always found time for our work on the album. Through this collaboration with Oneida I have learned a lot in terms of music, arangement, lyrics.
My slogan FUSMUSIC „forward to the roots of music“ does not come from somewhere. By composing I discovered the old blues of Muddy Waters, Bessie Smith, Willie Hugh Nelson, Buddy Guy and many moore. R’Roll of course no question. But I’m still looking for „OUR“ style. With our band „SCHOS“ we try to find this style. I also think that the old way of producing music is going to change with the latest techniques in the internet. You are not tied to one place. I have been practicing this for several years.
But what I’m not going to do is music from the assembly line. Behind every song is a lot of feeling and my lyrics describe, among other things, the problems of our damaged planet and its inhabitants.
