Just before our concert in Jamboree, in Westferry/Limehouse, a guy asked me if I wanted some cocaine. I told him that cocaine was unethical. He said "you've been watching to much netflix, man" and went off in a huff (I've watched hardly any netflix actually).
It was great to be reunited with my London band once again!
A year after the release of my debut album, the second album is coming! We'll record it in January in Belgium and Germany. Below is a clip from a recent gig with my London band of our brand new German song, Ich Liebe Sofia a.k.a. Sofia ist Vergeben. This will be on the new album, as well as the other new crowd favourites "Goldfish" and "Special Cream", updated versions of some of our other popular songs, and some brand new never-heard-before songs.
On November 2nd I played this song in Tubingen at Klangfolk, infront of Sofia and all her friends, and then again on November the 4th in Lichtenstein Haus (audio and video from that is on the way). This was the second time she's heard it performed. In summer 2019 I was in Tubingen, and I performed it in front of her boyfrend, in the basement of Lu 15, with Cristobal on sax, Ana Maria on clarinet, Mira on flute, Vilma on bass, Ammar, Sami & Jonas L on percussion (did I miss anyone?).
The idea for the song was born back in 2017, after I visited Tubingen for the first time on my way back from Rila music exchange.
