What was the most wonderful gig you ever played?
One of the latest concerts in a Jazz festival in April. It is a great feeling to play in front of 1000 people as they react to our every note just the right way. In Germany it was definitely in Fürth, Badstrasse 8!
Where would you absolutely love to play?
So many great festivals, but the first one that popped into my head is Haldern Pop Festival. We had the pleasure to play in Haldern bar in July 2014 and that itself was a great experience! And also, one of my favorite artist (Andrew Bird) did a really stunning performance in that festival.
Please describe your worst studio experience.
Studios are pretty uncomfortable anyway. But small rooms and separate recording booths and the dry air and usually the lights are shitty aswell.
What would your music sound like if Elvis had never existed?
I do believe our music would be exactly the same.
The title of the book that touched you most is…
Jerome K Jerome „Three Men in a Boat“
Which ringtone do you use?
Jack White „I’m Shakin'“
The most beautiful love song ever is called…
Leonard Cohen’s „Hallelujah“ (performed by Jeff Buckley, thou)
Which song (except your own songs) do you know by heart?
It’d take too much time to write them all down. But lots of Andrew Bird, Damien Rice, Jack White/White Stripes,Jeff Buckley, Radiohead/Thom Yorke, Regina Spektor, Sufjan Stevens, Beirut and so on.
What would you be today if you had not become a pop star?
I hope this question is just an unfortunate mishap in translation from german to english?
In which band would you like to play (except your own)?
What’s your favourite instrument?
Vocals combined with any instrument (except saxophone)
The greatest musical genius (dead or alive)?
Andrew Bird, Jack White at the moment
The most beautiful woman/man in show business?
I haven’t met that many women/men in show business to make that call yet.
