I've had some great times with The Chosen Few, The Green River Band & B├╝hnensucht.

Rehearsal sessions with my all new band beginning February 2013
Do you play live?
We play shows every week of the year in Germany and Southern Europe and I am also committed to doing gigs couple of weeks of the year in the USA
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Music is alive and well, even if the music industry is not. A new grass-roots industry is taking shape, though how it will eventually look is anybody's guess. Once a handful of big corporations funneled heavily marketed recordings by superstar artists through a few radio chains and MTV to the public. In place of that top-heavy business model, a new, more chaotic brand of self-marketing is emerging, fueled by tweets, text messages and MP3 files.

Roles have changed. Bands can now become de facto record companies: not only creating art but then distributing and publicizing it through websites and e-mail. And fans are no longer a faceless marketing demographic to which products are sold; they have become more like co-conspirators with the artists. They're not only viral advocates for bands, they're collaborators -- participating in remixes and videos, and by extension helping shape careers. They're invested in music personally in a way that wasn't possible a decade ago.

Not that infrastructure is unnecessary or going away. The major labels still exist as big marketing machines, as anyone who's aware of the new album by Whitney Houston or the CD reissues by the Beatles can attest. But the industry, like the music itself, is fragmenting into community-based niches and subcultures. The trend is toward smaller, self-contained units. Bands and artists who are already global brands, from Radiohead to Jay-Z, find they have more flexibility and keep more of the profit if they release music without having to deal with corporate politics. And smaller acts, from Girl Talk to Dan Deacon, are using recordings as advertisements for increasingly lucrative live performances.

Indeed, the new way of doing business has hardly done away with the past. On the contrary, cutting-edge technology that allows artists to connect with their fans 24/7 is building up an appetite for the oldest form of music distribution: the troubadour with the guitar (or laptop) slung across his back traveling from town to town to play for people. That's one musical experience that can't be digitized.
