Grizzly Bird

Born near the forests and foothills of the southern German Alps, Berlin-based musician Hans Gnendinger was never more than a stone’s throw away from a land of nature and myth.
At the southern end of the Romantic Road, where violins and lutes are made, this castle-laden domain proved a nourishing breeding ground for the young composer.
But it was on the streets and stages of Berlin that Hans honed his craft and success as a multilingual songsmith, guitarist, and performer.
After two full-length albums and career as alter ego ‘Hans Sølo’, Hans finds himself in a new incarnation: Grizzly Bird, a multi-genre trio formed in 2017 with Berlin artists Florian Dietrich (drums) and Nils Wenzel (bass).
Grizzly Bird infuses lush orchestration into Hans’s raw storytelling verve, with evocative lyricism and dreamy, fingerpicked reverie.
Released in 2019 through Berlin’s Famous Gold Watch Records, Empathy is both Grizzly Bird’s, and the label’s, debut release: a conceptual international journey that imagines tales from the minds of the animal kingdom – some based on real animal individuals, some from history and science, others that Hans met in person along the way.
Pulsing with electro-tinged chorales and unhurried narratives, this is the sonic culmination of Hans’s Bavarian roots through the scrim of Berlin’s sonic underground.

Sister Chain & Brother John

Eine charismatische Stimme, eine verzerrt-lärmende Bass-Gitarre und Songs, die mal an die 1920er, mal an die 1980/90-er und oft an nichts, was man zuvor gehört hat, erinnern. In den musikalischen Geschichten von Sister Chain & Brother John verflechten sich Fantasien mit Albträumen. In ihrem aktuellen Programm präsentiert das Duo einen Song-Zyklus aus den letzten beiden Alben “Darkness to Warm your Heart” und “The Androgyne Show”, sowie aus dem demnächst erscheinenen britischen Themen-Album über ein mythisch-utopisches England, spielerisch betrachtet durch das Prisma des Exils: Ein Vorstadt- Märchenland mit Holzschuppen und heiteren Geistern, ein nostalgisches Soho mit zwielichtigen Schurken des Nachtlebens, lasterhaften Schauspielern und dergleichen.
