Hello World!
I look pretty sad in this picture (above), but don´t worry; it was just a peaceful moment during our foto shoot for the new 5/8erl in Ehr´n album and tour.
We´ll release our 5th album “DUFT DER MÄNNER” in April – Yippie!
What can  I say? Of course, we´ve done a lot of work to get this done, but we didn’t rush with this one.  The devil is in the details. And we were eager for the small, beautiful details. I think we´re sounding sexy more than ever. Ha!
We´re touring from May on and finish with a big and nice open-air concert at legendary Arena Wien on June 9th. Save this date – Love is in the air!
Here´s a teaser – our first single release “Geh Bitte Bobo”; a self-deprecating song with a lot of groove:

Stay tuned for more song releases soon:) Bye!

She smiled sweetly – “NEAPEL” premiere!!!

The last two months I spent writing music for string quartet and electronics. “Neapel” is a 35-minute long suite of original compositions that will be premiered on March 25, at the amazing JazzWerkstatt Wien ZOOM! Festival. Here’s a video trailer with short audio and video clips from our rehearsals:

The fantastic Studio Dan Strings will join me on stage and we had a great time working on my new music. The track list of the suite will be: “Neapel”, “Airport Titanic”, “Corona Rosa”, “Kleine Schokoladen” and “Shoulder Press”. In case you can’t be part of the crowd at the premiere concert, you have the chance to listen to “Kleine Schokoladen” and an interview with me about the festival’s program on Austria’s main cultural radio station Ö1, also on March 25, 11:00pm on Zeit-Ton: oe1.orf.at

Here some rehearsal photos:





Don’t miss the fantastic ZOOM! Festival next week, I think it’s a great, diverse line-up:



Goodbye and all the best from Vienna and Napoli – Clemens







YES WE DOES

Our new record “YES WE DOES” is out!!! 5/8erl in Ehr´n – Soul from Vienna
Enjoy our new video “Alaba – How do you do?” Here it is:

I´ve co-written this song, along with several other tracks from our new album. You can buy and order it here. It´s been a pleasure making music with this band for 8 years now. We played two CD-Release concerts at brut in Vienna on October 8th and 9th. The location was sold out on both evenings and it was a very touching experience for us.
Here´s a picture taken by Rania Moslam:

Playing basketball is my second life, and when I´m not touring, rehearsing or composing, I spend my free hours with our newly founded team Vienna Basketwolves. We participate in Vienna´s Mixed Basketball League and it´s a lot of fun training and playing games with these nice people:

That would be it for now. All the best! Bye!
