I developed a penchant for some of the music of the past when I was a child. Sixties R&B and Soul was what I grew up with (growing to a height of all but six feet in the process … ha!), then turning to rock-a-billy, blues, and jazz. My initial bias for the fifties and sixties developed into an obsession with the forties, even thirties. That’s where I feel most at home as a singer, too.

Jump The Curb – Happy Swingin‘ Grooves of the 1940s and 1950s

Jump The Curb. My band. My passion. It’s the forties and fifties we celebrate. The fun we are having on stage, the sheer joy, is what listeners take home with them. That’s what they keep telling us, and there is no better reward for what we are doing.
Apart from that, we are solid people playing solid music. No? Well, don’t blame us for the lyrics – we didn’t write most of them, did we? Call them funny, ambiguous, suggestive. They fit perfectly, that’s what counts. We have played gala concerts and we have played small clubs, and we always sounded „right“. We have played music by Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, Ella Mae Morse, Varetta Dillard, Julia Lee and, increasingly, original songs.
Important to note: This music is 90 per cent lindy and boogie compatible. Thus, extremely danceable.

Singer „Gnä‘ Frau“ – Charming. Bouncy. Relaxed.

„Gnä‘ Frau“ are Lilli Kern, Barbara Bruckmueller and myself. Here we think, write and sing in Viennese. And eat a lot of chocolate.

International Friends Project „With A Little Help From My Friends“

What if love was as contagious as a virus? If anything, Corona showed us how connected we all are. A virus might spread and shut down all our countries, but love and international cooperations are stronger. It’s an international job to get rid of Covid. Let’s dive into 5 minutes of unmasked, international love and friendship:

Written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon.
In style of Joe Cocker.
