I always wanted to do nothing else than playing music. So got my first guitar from a friend at the age of fifteen, and started to practise. Soon I found out that there will be no Rockstars without a Band. Therefore me and my best friend decided to start a Band. The first experiences in the living room showed a clear result: We have to get it louder! Well, some years of playing guitar in some Bands followed (Pegel Päpste, Restposten und Einzelstücke, Beat Police, The shark sandwich and last but not least Medulla Oblongata). But sadly I never had the breakthrough with my instrument, which you need - to love it or to practise more and more.. So I was looking for a new experience.
In 2006 I was asked to do backlining on the Europe Tour for Tramps White Lion. This was my first international experience-and I liked it!
Many backlining, merch and driver jobs with Tramp, Jaded Heart and Axxis followed. On the tours I discovered the bassguitar and I am still in love with it.
After 10 seconds tunnig the bassguitar on stage I fell in love with it and forgot very soon about my earlier instruments:-)
I founded Trace of Sin-a Hard n Heavy Band with very experienced good old friends. Soon I was asked to do some recordings for friends and even to help out when a bassplayer was occupied.
Parallel to Trace of Sin I have had some side projects: Mindguard- "progressive influenced power metal", Manticore - "80s Metal", Bad Attitude -comeback Album, Bashing Bones, Tyranuke and many more.
Actually I am working with Dave for the new Opus Davi Album, keep your eyes open-this will be great:-)
