You would never know Volker was born in Heidelburg, Germany by listening to his recordings or performances. When he moved to States in his early 20's he set about studying the blues music he loved, and developing his own T Bone Walker based style. The more he listened the more he learned.
It was when he was asked to join the Ford Blues Band that Volker really began to blossom. Suddenly he was working in a band of highly accomplished musicians who valued originality over all else. A band who encouraged him to "go for the moon."
It was with this band that he began working with guitarists like Robben Ford and Chris Cain. Suddenly a whole new ball game opened up for him to play in and he went in to it with no hesitation.
Now, with this his second release on Blue Rock'It, Volker makes a powerful statement. The songs are almost all originals and with vocals as strong as his guitar work Volker now makes it clear that he takes second seat to no one.
