    The Nation Mourns

    The Nation Mourns is the musical brain child of Irish songwriter Neil O’Shea. Growing up with a wide range of blues and rock influence, it was the haunting timbre of artists such as Tom Waits, Nick Drake, and Jackson C Frank that drew him to songwriting. This has lead him to lyrics of landscapes and leaving for home; while subtle, melancholic melodies draw you ever further into the music.
    “He snakes his lyrical phrasing around the beat expertly expressing the weight of every word and the music carries that burden with a sense of kindness and compassion.”
    For the Love of Bands

    Nathan Ott Trio

    Bela Meinberg – (p)
    Christian Müller – (b)
    Nathan Ott – (dr)

    Im Quartett des jungen Wahl-Berliners und dessen langjährigem
    Mentor und musikalischem Wegbegleiter Dave Liebman sorgte
    der junge Bandleader, Schlagzeuger und Komponist mit seiner
    eigenen Vision 2016 erstmals für Aufsehen, indem er den Geist
    der legendären Lighthouse- Edition der Elvin- Jones-Band der
    frühen 70er Jahre ins 21. Jahrhundert brachte und damit
    eindrucksvoll zeigte, wie fruchtbar eine solch generations-
    überschreitend interkontinentale Jazz-Begegnung sein kann.
    Seitdem hat er sich längst über die Stadtgrenzen Hamburgs und
    Berlins hinaus als ein überaus wacher und vitaler Impulsgeber
    bewährt, der es versteht, seine Dynamik im Dienst des jeweiligen
    musikalischen Zusammenhangs zu dosieren.
    Dabei arbeitete er in seiner noch jungen Karriere mit Künstlern
    wie Dave Liebman, Richie Beirach, Tobias Delius, Jonas
    Westergaard, Sebastian Gille, Rainer Böhm, Niels Klein, Vladislav
    Sendecki oder Claus Stötter.

    Eldar Tsalikov & Greg Cohen

    Eldar Tsalikov and Greg Cohen are back at it again.
    The duo achieved worldwide fame after their first CD evaporated after being pressed.
    The music was so hot, the plastic melted!
    These two titans of the music formally known as “jazz” will serenade you with compositions
    written by famous melodists of the 20th century.
    I find no logical reason for missing this show, other than an extended holiday in Peoria, Illinois.
    Please come and join in the fun.
    Bass and saxophone hasn’t sounded this good since the wig party was in office.

    Walking through the clouds of time, pulling out the strings of melodies, and the raindrops fall down to the ground to make the rhythm that echoes in the air. Takumi Motokawa will bring the contrasting two part set: acoustic and electronic. Inspired by the dreams, and the simplicity and complexity of our hearts.

    PFAU

    Phil Donkin – BS
    Uli Kempendorff – TS
    Asger Uttrup Nissen – AS
    Fabian Rösch – DS

    PFAU is a quartet comprised of Bassist Phil Donkin, Saxophonists Uli Kempendorff und Asger Uttrup Nissen, und Drummer Fabian Rösch. The Berlin-based group formed in 2021 and perform original music composed by all of the members. With a compositional focus on intervallic, spacial rhythmic forms, the improvisations follow in both parallel unity and juxtaposed cognisance. The four musicians weave, glide and sometimes scrap with the thematic material causing an uncanny Smorgasbord of rhapsody and visceral discordancy.

    Jessie Monk – guit, voc

    Paul Santner – bass
    Conor Cunningham – Wind

    Accompanied by an All-Star team of intergalactic space-musicians, fresh out of the studio, Jessie Monk and band present a selection of original space-infant songs that are being moulded, massaged, slapped, shoved, carved, caressed, spat on by Zuess, breathed on by Athena and sprung into life for a summer evening at Donau 115.

    Join Jessie, Fabiana Strifler, Paul Santner, Conor Cunningham and Gidon Carmel for an exciting expedition among friends into and among the Fields of Barley.
    Jessie Monk is a conglomeration of subatomic particles, originally from GunaiKurnai land in Australia. She sings folk songs inspired by the people she keeps meeting, stories she keeps hearing and thresholds she keeps walking through. Also a dancer and an actor, Jessie has played in some major musicals in Australia, including David Bowie’s last piece, Lazarus. She began singing her tunes for people around Israel in 2019 before moving to Berlin in 2020 where she’s been astounded by her warm welcome to the thriving folk scene. Chasing the holy grail of albums like Blue and New Skin for the Old Ceremony, from Jessie, you can expect to hear earthy, story-lead folk songs about longing, loving and meeting that stranger in the mirror who continually surprises us.

    “What can I play?”
    This is entirely up to you. Out of respect for our neighbours:
    – you may NOT use loud percussion and loud bass-heavy signals into the PA.
    – you are welcome to use our backline, which includes:
    — piano
    — generic vocal microphones
    — a small terrible PA, accepting guitar/XLR cables (new one coming soon!)

    “But what about Covid-19”
    Yep, we know. No more than 25 people may be in our stage area at any time. Those wishing to enter after that capacity has been reached can enjoy a drink or a taco in the back room or outside on our sidewalk seating until more spaces become available.

    “Anything else?”
    Donau115 is a very fun but weird musician’s musician kind of bar, come expecting oddballs.

    Sophie Sutton


    ‘…someone who deserves to be on the biggest stages bringing smiles to the masses.’ -We Close Tonight

    Described as an artist with a thorough understanding of her art, Welsh-born and Devonshire-grown Sophie Sutton draws inspiration from various artists and genres, from the jazz-influenced Lianne La Havas to the folky elegance of Lucy Rose. Vulfpeck’s funky and soulful Theo Katzman has also played a huge role in Sutton’s approach to songwriting and performing and, in April 2018, after a writing collaboration together, Sutton found herself on one of the larger stages in Berlin opening his sold-out show in Frannz Club.

    Alongside intuitively creative melodies, Berlin-
based artist Sophie Sutton is a skilled vocalist
who accompanies herself with a sophisticated jazz-pop
guitar style. Her lyrics are hard-hitting yet
graceful, with personality and vulnerability felt
throughout. In Summer 2018, she collaborated with Danish audio company, Libratone, who invited 10 international artists into the renowned studios of Funkhaus in Berlin. Sutton’s song ‘So Much So Little’ was recorded in this live-session and released in January 2019.

    Back home in the UK, Sutton has been described as ‘Devon’s finest female singer-songwriter’ by James Santer at BBC Introducing and, since moving to the German capital in early 2017, has attracted significant attention from both locals and visitors alike.

    Nissen Mosh


    Asger Nissen – Alto Saxophone, comp.
    Valentin Gerhardus – Piano
    Thorbjørn Stefansson – Bass
    Marius Wankel – Drums

    Nissen Mosh plays fresh original music of Danish Saxophonist Asger Nissen. Since arriving in Berlin in late 2017, Asger Nissen has established a solid name for himself around the German Jazz scenes. The music of Nissen Mosh reflects some of Asger Nissen’s favorite impulses from old, modern and contemporary music in a fresh and relevant as well as curious and inspired expression.
    He is joined by some of his closest and favorite musicians; Valentin Gerhardus, Thorbjørn Stefansson & Marius Wankel. Together they make vigorous music filled with harmonic and melodic spontaneity and playfulness supported by a solid rhythmical foundation of tight grids, vivid grooves, liquid beats and raw power. All of this with a recurring inspiration from songwriting genres.

    Loxodon_prism


    Tal Arditi – (guit)
    Nathan Ott – (dr)

    Guitarist Tal Arditi and Drummer Nathan Ott met through the Berlin music scene and quickly connected to explore the possibilities of the drums/guitar duo setting.
    Improvising structure as a conceptual main element while abandoning categories of genre, the Duo’s music is a highly intensive live experience – naturally flowing, dynamic and dramatic.
    Loxodon_prism is an impromptu exploration of a big spectrum from adventurous cinematic soundscapes to grounded rhythmic communication.
    Join an unpredictable journey, where the only rule is playing the moment and being prepared for the unexpected.

    Johannes Bigge Trio
    Johannes Bigge – piano, composition
    Robert Lucaciu – double bass
    Moritz Baumgärtner – drums

    The Johannes Bigge Trio explores the borderland between contemporary jazz, alternative pop and free improvisation. Their music is full of dynamics, emotion and surprising contrasts and plays skillfully with paradoxes. The compositions are equally complex and simple, emotional and sincere, of clear structure and full of encrypted images. The band so far released two albums on NWOG-Records and played numerous national and international clubs and festivals.
