a versatile and colourful artist that has been full of surprises these past years. He is currently Serious Talent at 3FM, a national Dutch radio station and he will release a mini album called ‘All is There’ on March 31. The album will be released independently and was recorded with musicians from Triggerfinger and producer David Poltrock who previously worked with bands such as Hooverphonic and Arid. The songs were recorded in the famous JET-studio in Brussels. Black Pete, who also mixed songs for Peter Fox and Joe Jackson, has worked hard in Berlin to make sure that the songs come to full bloom when blast from your speakers. The first single “A brand new heart” for which an extraordinary video was made, has been played on national radio stations such Radio 1, 2 and 3FM as well as on all regional stations. His remarkable live performance even brought him to the very popular Dutch tv show De Wereld Draait Door.
In the past Gerhardt played at sleazy, big, small, odd and rickety stages in Moscow, Cuba, Portugal, Finland, Germany, Lapland, Belgium and the Netherlands. He plays his music in Japanese looking cocktail bars, 16th century courtyards, steamy living rooms, prisons and rock stages.
Gerhardt also has a prominent inflaming role in Beans & Fatback playing the piano, singing the backings and slaughtering the cowbell. With performances on Oerol, Great Wide Open, DWDD, VI Oranje and promos on stations such as Radio538 and 3FM, the year 2010 was very successful for Beans & Fatback which has made Gerhardt decide to postpone the release of his album. But the moment has finally come: the mini album ‘All is There’ will be available on 31st of March!
Gerhardt will release his CD during the “All Hearts Revue” he has organised in Paradiso on 31st of March. A freakout caroussel performance night. From electro to singer songwriter, Stand Up Comedy and the band themselves. After that he will tour the country with the All Hearts Revue and play in Eindhoven, Groningen, Hoorn, Tilburg and Leiden amongst others. He and his band will also perform at the Bevrijdingsfestival Haarlem, bevrijdingsfestival Amsterdam and various other festivals this summer.
Imagine going home after a show with the echoing sounds of songs in your head..
For you, precious listener
Especially for you.
