Martin Klein Short Info

1. ENGLISH
Listening to Martin Klein alone- just the one man and one piano- is an extraordinary experience, a thrilling sense of participation on the innermost thoughts of a creative musician. The singer-songwriter and piano player has progressed from being an insider-tip to a small institution, since he has been playing solo shows in Vienna just with an old keyboard and his powerful voice. Endlessly inventive, no two plays of him ever seem quite the same. From broken rhythms to beautiful piano chords he has carved out a sophisticated niche of his very own. Martin Klein has a natural gift to tell a story through his music and his spectrum of vocal ability amazes. He doesn’t really seem to care about artistic pigeonholes and expectations. While his 2008 debut “Songs for My Piano” was recorded by a trio and featured songs in English, he surprised us with his second album “Lass uns bleiben”, which he recorded on his own and in German. He remains unpredictable on his third record: “Tracks from My Keyboard” is dedicated to more experimental Synthesizer sounds. In 2013 the New York based music channel Nycrophone wrote about Martin Klein`s songs: "His music is just beautiful and inspiring and we decided to feature a few of his tracks to show our music lovers out there that the German language can sound poetic and soft. If you love the piano and captivating melodies, definitely familiarize yourself with his music!"

2. DEUTSCH

Martin Klein- In Wien lebend, in Innsbruck aufgewachsen. Studierte in den Niederlanden Klavier bei Bert van den Brink. Künstler, Komponist, Musiker, Familienvater, Klavier und Schlagzeuglehrer.
Von Traumton Records in Berlin entdeckt (http://www.traumton.de/ ) arbeitet er derzeit an seiner 4 Platte. (Erscheint im Frühjahr 2015)
Ein ganz großes Talent mit einem Urinstinkt für Texte, Lieder und Musik welche im Live Moment alle Menschen gleichermaßen berühren.
Seine Pressekritiken sind himmelhoch jauchzend. Wobei er selbst ein unglaublich ruhiger, bescheidener und zurückhaltender Mensch ist.
Darum auch absolut erstaunlich welch große Gefühle und Momente er bei einem Konzert im Publikum auslöst.

Vielschichtige Musik, eigene Kompositionen, Texte, Lieder, Songs, Theatermusik, Filmmusik (z.B. der mit dem Publikumspreis der Diagonale 2014 ausgezeichnete Film: Das Kind in der Schachtel)………das alles vereint Martin Klein.

Die Presse jubelt:

Samir H. Köck (Die Presse): „Seine Träume scheinen wirklicher als alle Wirklichkeit. Sein Utopia versucht nicht weniger, als die Entzauberung der Welt rückgängig zu machen.“

Der Falter schreibt: "Thom Yorke ohne Kunstrucksack und ein Maximilian Hecker ohne Elfenbeinturm"

Der Standard: "sensible und obsessive Kunst"

Tonspion: "Wenn echtes Leben auf Traumwelten eines Poeten trifft. So muss Musik sein"

fm4: "ein nicht nur musikalisch, sondern auch menschlich beeindruckendes Werk….wohl einer der begnadetsten Musiker Österreichs.“

Jazzthetik: "traumverlorene kleine Meisterwerke".

Hier geht´s zu den übrigen 39, sehr lesenswerten Pressekritiken: http://www.martinklein.at/presse.html

Wir würden uns sehr freuen, bei Ihnen auftreten zu dürfen und bitten um eine Chance. Gerne auch kurz- oder langfristig.
