Confessing opera fan Jan Koemmet has been in the music business for decades. He had a special inclination as a soloist again and again to Metal. Especially the time in the German metal export Accept (Album: 'Restless and Wild') hovers like a sword of Damocles over his musical career. After leaving his last metal band Lion Twin in 2015, however, this chapter was finally completed and worked on their own solo songs, which now have no points of contact with Metal. He was also a member of the Starlight Express Orchestra in Bochum for several years and is currently a tenor and member of the extra choir of the Wuppertal Opera. German texts with a lot of feeling and depth, embedded in wonderful pop arrangements, characterize Jan's current musical universe. "With my new project I feel much freer artistically and musically," says Jan. "In addition, it is important to me that I can tell the lyrics in my mother tongue more powerfully and profoundly." That's why it's no coincidence that he does the legendary Rio Reiser, who was baptized by the press as the 'German Bob Dylan' after his early death, is one of his role models.
