Hey, What can I say? I'm just super stoked and happy to be playing at this year's 50th anniversary Montreux Jazz Festival. I've seen so many great, inspiring and out of this world musicians play there and it means a great deal to me that I can play there this year with a fantastic band backing me up! My band will be: Manu Rindlisbacher (bass), Rykka (voc) Nicolas Sciarrone (e-git), Daniel Eugster (drums) See you soon!
Playing on top of a building in Zürich-West for Balcony TV Zürich It was such a cold day with a lot of wind and rain but we had a really great time. I'm was also excited to read that Balcony TV international (NY) choose the clip as show of the week and it was the editor's pick! Thank you Christoph Soltmannowski and Tanja König from our home town Zürich Balcony TV and Balcony TV international!
Well I'm just sitting in my warm kitchen sending out some emails, spreading the word that I'll be supporting Denison Witmer next Saturday Nov. 14 and I'll have Rykka come sing my tunes with me. I have been listening to his music for quite some time. I discovered back in 2005 after he released his amazing album Are You A Dreamer (Militia Records). He's been an inspiration for quite a few songwriters such as Sufjan Stevens or William Fitzimmons. It's unbelievable that I haven't actually even seen him live yet. So it's a double anticipation for me. The show will take place at Pillow Song Loft in Stans which has been founded by Sarah Bowman & Rene Coal Burrell. Get your tickets for next Saturday HERE
More news will be coming very soon. I am currently working on a deluxe edition of my new EP "Pacific Gold" with remixes and acoustic versions. Lot's of love TJ
So pleased and happy! Today I recorded some vocals with Paul Ubana Jones. We are working on a acoustic version of my bluesy song Jump & Scream! That is a great honor for me. I have admired this musician and person for a long time now. We met way back, maybe 15 years ago in New Zealand and I always loved his passion in music, a wonderful singer and most amazing guitar player. Check him out live if you can. It's a blast. Thank you to Roman Frischknecht for recording the guitar and Rykka for recording our vocals! Love to you all!
What a day! The New York based blog Baebelmusic decided to premiere my new video clip "Jump & Scream" and think I bring back some much needed realness to country-blues. Directed by Simon Ramseier with Olivia Stutz
