What is your projects in Germany for the time being?
– I have several projects in Germany this upcoming fall and through the next years. Highasakite, Team Me, Marie Munroe, Thea & The Wild and Bendik are all releasing new albums next year, and we’ll also see some exciting new single releases this year already. Team Me will be touring with The Wombats in Germany in November. Tini has something special going on as well. Exciting times ahead!
Have you been at Reeperbahn before? What is your best experience?
– I have, and I find the whole festival as a funny and memorable experience. The special location right in the middle of Reeperbahn, good venues, great people, good audience and lots of great music.
What is your agenda for this years’ festival?
– I don’t have any bands playing there this year so I’ll definitely have some more time for meetings and seminars. That’s my main reason for going this year. I’m still seeking several partners in Germany for most of my acts, but I’m also looking forward to meet people that I’m already working with. And yes, I’m of course going to attend a lot of concerts.
Which artist should everyone check out at Reeperbahn this year?
– I can only pick one? Tricky. Here’s nine: Aurora, Dengue Fever, Emilie Nicolas, Fay Wildhagen, Great Lake Swimmers, Half Moon Run, Heimatt, Kid Astray, Spidergawd.
