Ferdinand Kirchalias nand. 23 years old. Music is a topic in the Kirch household from an early age. Mom sings a lot, Dad plays the guitar a lot. At the age of 9, the young nand was already taking trumpet lessons. At the age of 10, he also took piano lessons. Consequently active in big band and orchestra during school years. Involved intensively with classical music in his younger years, shifts his interest in adolescence towards house, electro and rap. At university, inspired by the 'arty' environment of his architecture studies, he expands his horizons in the direction of NDW, soundwave and above all synthpop. Progressive and international music are also high on his agenda. He soaks it all up, can hardly get enough of new genres and styles.
Early musical education, digital access and modern sequencer programs make it possible for early 20-somethings to produce with such amazing precision, versatility and authenticity in a variety of genres. During his studies, nand then also discovers his voice, begins to sing his own lyrics, develops the know-how of vocal recording and the self-confidence to show his first own songs to his circle of friends.
In January 2020, "Wohlfühlen" is released without the support of a label, without a PR team, without a marketing budget. Simply a DIY release via the streaming portals. "Wohlfühlen" quickly picks up steam, people follow nand on social media, put the track in their playlists. Eventually, a management team takes notice. TV placements, advertising requests quickly follow, nand is invited to the renowned 'Reeperbahn Festival'.
Nand has tasted blood and has already set a remarkable scent mark with his first release. "Stay tuned" is not a parting phrase here, but a serious advice.
The concert is part of the funding project "c/o pop 2023 musichubgermany" and is supported by the Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft GmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
