What the critics say



"Germany's Broken Radio proves that an old-fashioned, brooding Gothic-country song knows no borders."
- Adobe and Teardrops -

"...klingt nach der flimmernden Weite des wilden Westens...und erinnert vom Nuschelgesang ziemlich an Bob Dylan..."
- Zündfunk, Bayern 2 -

"... love the mood of this! and the production is excellent!!!"
- Purple Melon Music -

"Some Nick Cave dramatics, music that is meant for the stage but not necessarily the one that resides in a music venue. Yes, this is one for where dark shadows, giant curtains and props are the order of the day. ... this is music for adults and those able to absorb something beyond the superficial. It is a giant canvass, sometimes hard work but always impressive."
- mp3hugger -

"...we dig the dark country Cohen vibe..."
- EarToTheGround Music -

"...loving the smoky voice and the delicate instrumentation..."
- Indie & Folk Radio -

"... Seit mittlerweile gut und gerne 20 Jahren bastelt und schraubt er nun schon an seiner eigenen Klangwelt. Bluer Than Gray (Hausmusik) ist ... ein hörenswerter Schritt nach vorne: die Stimme klingt reifer, die Songs, die sich an den Schnittstellen zu Blues, Country und Soul, mithin also zwischen Willard Grant Conspiracy und Smog bewegen, wirken sorgfältig arrangiert und man merkt ihnen die unbedingte Leidenschaft für Americana und die Traditionen der amerikanischen Songwriter an."
- in München -

"De muziek is melancholisch, meeslepend en beschikt over een majestueuze, diepgravende schoonheid. Ik moet denken aan artiesten als Smog, Adrian Crowley, Lambchop, Calexico en Townes Van Zandt, zonder dat dit ooit helemaal past. Het moge duidelijk zijn dat dit wel een heel fraai unicum is en dat deze droefgeestige klasbakkerij weer broodjes serveert om intens van te genieten."
- De Subjectivisten -

Never Heard Of 'Em

Never Heard Of Em

NEVER HEARD OF 'EM is the title of a book by Sue Donahoe about the Austin music explosion from 1994 to 2000. It offers exlusive insights into the vibrant Austin music scene and focuses mainly on independent artists. NEVER HEARD OF 'EM flows like a memoir, holds a real-time archive of energetic articles that document a short, but rich part of Austin’s music history. I feel very honoured to be included in this truly great book.
