James Hunter has certainly paid his dues. Over the span of 30 years, he’s worked on the railway, busked in the streets of London, provided backup vocals and guitar for Van Morrison, played clubs and theatres all over the world, written scores of original songs, and recorded some of the most original and honest rhythm & soul albums of the last two decades. By 2006, Hunter was recognized with nominations for a GRAMMY® Award (“Best Traditional Blues Album” for People Gonna Talk (Rounder)) and an American Music Award (“Best New/Emerging Artist”). He and his band then hit the road for a decade of extensive touring and recorded three additional critically-acclaimed studio albums— The Hard Way (Concord), Minute by Minute (Concord) and Hold On! (Daptone). By 2016, MOJO magazine had crowned him “The United Kingdom’s Greatest Soul Singer.”

At age 16, Hunter left school in Colchester, Essex and began working for the railway, while honing his blues guitar and singing skills. Six years later, he played his first paid gig at the Colchester Labour club (as “Howlin’ Wilf and the Vee-Jays”). In the decades since, James Hunter has gone from singer/songwriter to labourer and back again. After releasing one album in 1986, Hunter and his band became a popular fixture on the UK club circuit and radio waves. His gritty, soulful voice has matured well along with his musicianship and song writing.

In the early 90’s, Van Morrison recruited Hunter to sing backup on the road touring and on two albums, A Night in San Francisco and Day’s Like This. In the years to follow, Hunter opened shows for Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Willie Nelson, and Tom Petty, and headlined clubs and theatres in England, Europe, Australia and the United States.

Jonathan Bree is a musician from New Zealand, known for melodic compositions where he croons about modern life and love, over string parts that slide precariously between notes and dulcitones chimes. The end result is a musical palette one could describe as dark Disney. These elements are present in his breakthrough viral hit, ‘You’re So Cool,’ which currently has over 14 million views on YouTube.

His live shows have also gained him a cult following across the world. Masked band members in pioneering clothing are set against a backdrop of cinematic projections created specifically for each song. Unusual for an indie act, he also has two dancers who perform other-worldly choreographed routines along with the music. These performances have seen Jonathan Bree tour extensively across the globe. A reviewer from Time Out Australia was „mesmerized“ by his „surreal and filmic“ show at the Sydney Arts Festival.
After ‘You’re So Cool’ went viral, many likely assumed Jonathan Bree was a new artist. He began writing his own songs at age 9 and performed live as a drummer in his cousin’s band until age 13. This was interrupted after being sent to live in Australia with his father, who was an inspiring cult leader (unfortunately not a joke). Bree subsequently left home and independently navigated his teenage years.

When Bree returned to New Zealand, he formed The Brunettes, who in their active years toured the world and released music through Sub Pop Records and Bree’s own label, Lil Chief Records. The frustrations of trying to take this traditional route to success saw him take a long break from releasing his own music. In the interim, he happened to produce the song ‘The Cigarette Duet’ for Princess Chelsea (in 2011) and directed it’s video which has since surpassed 47 million views.

When he finally returned to releasing his own music it was as a solo artist with the album, The Primrose Path (2013). His only promotion for it was uploading to YouTube an album length video of himself watching shows on his laptop in bed accompanied by his girlfriend and cat.

Bree’s second album A Little Night Music (2015) saw him embrace a more cinematic approach, while retaining strong melodies and hooks. Nonetheless, it is his least pop-focussed album to date and leans more heavily on classical soundscapes – Nick Cave meets the Nutcracker Suite. It was during this album campaign that Bree first introduced the concept of his period piece masked band. The debut single/video ‘Weird Hardcore’ (2014) featured his musicians appearing as if within a skewed timeline, think Amadeus meets The Old Grey Whistle Test. It’s rumoured that around this time Jonathan acquired a time machine…

In the lead-up to his third album Sleepwalking, he released his viral single and music video for ‘You’re So Cool’ which was named Time Out New York’s Video of the Year. Sleepwalking (2018) has a heavy orchestrated element featuring real strings, horns, celeste and soprano vocals. His arrangements draw distinct influence from orchestral pop of a bygone era (think Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra), but many of the songs dip in and out of the avant-garde in a way that is also distinctly modern.

His latest single ‘Waiting on the Moment’ came out in September 2019 and is a break-up song you can dance to. It expresses the pain of revisiting places where a love you once knew had significance. In this case a karaoke bar. Rather than presented within a tearjerker ballad, the music gives another angle, one of celebration. There is an optimism in moving on, confronting and acting on your sense of loss. Many of Bree’s signature sounds are present – bendy strings, clicky bass, dulcitone and arpeggiated synth, but it’s perhaps his most pop focused track to date.

His upcoming album will be out in 2020.

Max „Rockstah“ Nachtsheim

"Das noch größere Comedy Comeback" 2020

Der Podcast-Entrepreneur, Rapper und Medientausendsassa Rockstah traute sich nach 15 Jahren erstmalig 2019 wieder auf die deutschen Comedybühnen, von wo aus er seinem Publikum einen einzigartigen Eindruck in die Kindheit als Sohn der hessischen Comedyikone Henni Nachtsheim sowie weiteren sehr einschneidenden Lebensereignissen bietet.

Eines ist klar: Selbst Menschen, die nichts Belustigendes am Begriff des „Steckdosen-Befruchters“ oder der fiktiven Person des Kylo Wisdoms finden können, kommen genauso auf ihre Kosten, wie bekennende Verfolger des riesigen Rockstah-Content-Konglomerates. Oder kurz: Es ist egal ob du Rockstah-Fan bist, Max Nachtsheim schafft es, dich auf seine ganz eigene Art abzuholen. Diese Art bewegt sich zwischen schamloser Selbstironie, grenzenlosem Größenwahn und hemmungsloser Ehrlichkeit. Wie man es von Wahnsinnigen gewohnt ist, legt Max Nachtsheim teuflisch viel Wert auf Detail und Konsequenz.

Mit viel Liebe und Leidenschaft hat er ein Standup geschrieben, welches die Eckpfeiler seines Lebens zeigt. Dass sein großes Comedy Comeback vollends gelungen ist und Lust auf mehr Witze aus einer Nachtsheimer Feder macht, liegt nicht zuletzt vielleicht daran, dass er unverkennbar viel von sich als Mensch auf die Bühne bringt.

Fakt ist: Er ist zurück und feiert im Sommer 2020 ein noch größeres Comedy Comeback. Und das mit sämtlichen Pauken, Trompeten und was er noch so im alten Proberaum seines Vaters finden konnte.
