About our album "Märchen"

In June 2021 the singer and songwriter Kurt Seßler had the idea of making a music album with some of his songs.
So he asked Werner Zeeb, who he had known since school.
Zeeb agreed and in July 2021 they started working on their studio album.
All songs on the album were written by Kurt Seßler, he also is the lyricist and singer.
Werner Zeeb - as a multi-instrumentalist - played all the instruments and is the producer of the album.
He also designed the cover.
Background vocals are from Werner Zeeb, Julian Seßler and Franziska Groß.

In the period from July 2021 to February 2022, the two arranged and produced 12 songs. So just 7 months for 12 tracks!
They did everything themselves with low budget. Only small studio and equipment.

There are many musical styles on the album:
From Rock and Pop to ballads, reggae to folk music and funky/jazzy elements.
Characteristics of the album are catchy melodies, varied harmonies, pulsating rhythms and subtle German lyrics.
The album is like their taste in music - very varied.

In March 2022, the album was placed on all major music streaming platforms via the distributor "recordjet".
The German lyrics are also displayed on most platforms.

In addition, the two musicians are still on several social audio platforms - such as soundcloud and bandcamp. They made a lot of contacts through this.

Even a music label contacted them via soundcloud, with whom they then received a license agreement for one of their songs.
Two other songs of the album can be heard on the radio at the moment
The two musicians are very satisfied with what they have achieved so far with their album "Märchen".
As of December 31, 2022, they had a total of around 800,000 streams worldwide. Except Germany most in the US, UK and Australia.

 About our single "Wenn"

The single was released on March 17th, 2023 and is also placed on all major music streaming platforms.

"Wenn" is a lively Pop song with a bit of jazzy attitude and cranky wordplay in the lyrics.

The song was not easy to implement because it is difficult to assign a clear musical genre.

So we arranged the song very varied (and even integrated a part of rap vocals into it).

The single got a bit success so far.

It is played on the The #1 Global Internet Radio Station "GlacerFM" focusing on Unsigned and Independent Music in all genres.

The song even made it into the top 10 charts there and was there from mid-March to the end of April 2023, number 4 as the best placement. 

The song was also broadcasted by the "European Indie Music Network". It ran there in the radio show "Formula Indie".
This radio show was produced by this network and broadcasted on 39 radio stations worldwide.

In addition numerous  music blogs all over the world published excellent reviews about the song.
