Psychedelic Song Rock
I was born under a blazing orange sun in 1966 in the Weinhaus district of Vienna (Austria) from a long haired mom, who painted each room in a different colour, and a just and loving dad, who taught me to stick to dreams. It was the year when Hendrix went to London and the Starship Enterprise started its voyage through time and space. I remember the first step on the moon and grew up in the hope of once being a part of that groovy new world. But then came Techno, HipHop, Desert Storm, 9/11 and an overall culture of fear. Our gorgeous colours had turned into shades of grey.
Growing up bilingual (German and Italian) in Vienna, I studied Ancient Greek and Latin and learned meditation from a disciple of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Loving all things related to the sea, I wrote some books about historic travels and discoveries and I worked as a senior lecturer at the University of Vienna. After a heart attack in 2013 I decided it was time to give back a few things I had so generously enjoyed in the 60s and 70s. Together with Christoph Plutzar I founded the Psychedelic Song Rock Band "Weinhaus66". And so I'm trying to bring "those colours" back. Spreading Greek and Indian philosophy through my lyrics. Making music that frees the heart.
