Press Text
Born near the forests and foothills of the southern German Alps, Berlin-based musician Hans Gnendinger was never more than a stone’s throw away from a land of nature and myth.

But it was on the streets and stages of Berlin that Hans honed his craft and success as a multilingual songsmith, guitarist, and performer.

Fronting the trio Grizzly Bird, Hans merges his raw storytelling verve and intricate fingerpicking with the rhythmic sensation and powerful dynamics of a rock band. Grizzly Bird can move their audience from folk harmonies and quiet contemplation to ecstatic indie rock grooves, sometimes within a single song. Carried by Hans’ clear, lyrical voice, their songs offer us compelling narratives, subtle humour and humble observations about the state of the world.

Hans began his career under the name Hans Sølo, releasing two albums and touring around Europe both by himself and with a chamber pop ensemble. In 2017, Hans decided to ditch the ungoogleable Hans Sølo moniker and restart with a new band. With Florian Dietrich on drums and Nils Wenzel on bass, he found the right musicians to create maximum sonic impression as a trio.

Grizzly Bird released their debut Empathy in 2019 via The Famous Gold Watch Records, a concept album about animals and how we relate to them.

In August 2020, Grizzly Bird entered The Famous Gold Watch studio to record four new songs, written during that strange spring and summer of the pandemic, leading to a new EP called Somewhere Between. Presenting a stripped down and focussed version of Grizzly Bird’s sound, Somewhere Between will be released on June 4th on vinyl and CD. The band ran a successful crowdfunding and released music videos for The Drummmer's Trauma and The Lakes.
