Adam Wendler

Canadian singer-songwriter Adam Wendler released his most recent solo album, 'Never Go Unknown', in July of 2017. Produced, engineered and mixed by JUNO award winner Siegfried Meier at Beach Road Studios and mastered by Troy Glessner, the album is packed with catchy melodies, soul felt lyrics and soaring vocal harmonies. It showcases Adam’s unique guitar playing style that is remnant of the 1960’s, yet has a distinctive modern feel.

Following the release in July, Adam embarked on a three month long Germany tour consisting of more than 50 dates all over the country. The venues ranged from intimate settings to festivals including Open Flair. Prior to the tour Adam was announced winner of the radioeins contest ‘The Next Big Thing’ in Berlin, where his song ‘The Flame’ had been chosen out of 850 other contestants. This led to radio play and a concert at the renowned radioeins Parkfest in Berlin. As the summer progressed, Adam continued to win several other contests including a ‘Newcomer Contest’ hosted by S4TP (at Lido Berlin) and the Neukölln Songslam (at Heimathafen Neukölln).

Adam began seriously pursuing his musical career after high school, when he decided to travel the world and went to Europe. From there, he ventured throughout several countries, performing on the streets to fund his travels. Following his trip to Europe, Adam travelled to New Zealand, living there for a year where he was able to hone his guitar playing, mastering the fingerpicking style that makes him stand out amongst others and can be heard on his two solo albums.

Throughout several years of travelling, Adam would periodically return to his home town of Goderich, Ontario for a couple of months at a time. On one of these occasions he recorded his debut solo album 'A Forward Moving Motion' with producer Anthony Strome. He had previously recorded three albums with his band ‘The Fermented Oranges’, but found it was time to break out on his own.

His extensive travels and experiences provide inspiration for his music compilations. On 'Never Go Unknown' Adam has improved by leaps and bounds, showing his ability to write great songs. The album is packed with virtuoso acoustic picking and strumming and a line of sway-along balladry and upbeat foot-tapping that inspires not just murmurs of appreciation but full-blooded response. There is a song for everyone on this album!

Leonie Mikkie

Leonie Mikkie is based in Berlin and has had the fortune to perform in various countries in the last few years, giving her songs an authentic and cosmopolitan style. Her classical piano education impresses aswell as the complex harmonies and melodies in her songs. She combines outright, yet poetic lyrics in German and English with her fragile voice and varying piano accompaniment.

Hearing her live is an experience which will transport you into a puzzling world of personal thoughts and stories.
