Livemusik | Präsentiert von Neukölln Un&Plugged


Ein Neuanfang heißt auch sich vom alten Leben zu verabschieden. Um ein neues Kapitel zu erschaffen, lässt man ein Altes hinter sich und damit auch ein alte Version.
2016 zog der Australier nach Berlin um sich seinen Lebenstraum zu erfüllen: Er wollte die Welt mit seiner Musik bereichern!

Laufens Musik sorgt dafür, dass man mit allem aufhört was man gerade macht und nur noch atmet: ruhige Melodien gepaart mit glänzendem Gitarren; elementare Orcherstrierung voller Verlangen spiegeln die poetische Küsten des wilden Australiens wieder.

Neukölln Un&Plugged freut sich auf einen weiteren großartigen Songwriter vom fünften Kontinent! 🇦🇺

Einlass ist ab 18 Uhr, los geht´s um 20:30 Uhr!
Der Eintritt ist frei, Spenden in den Hut sind sehr willkommen.

New beginnings also mean saying goodbye to an old life – to create a new chapter, you leave behind another, and leave an old version of yourself behind.
In 2016, the Australian troubadour – a classically trained singer and folk guitarist in the tradition of peers Angus and Julia Stone and Vance Joy – left everything behind inhis coastal town Port Lincoln for a dream life on the European road.

In 2016, he moved to Berlin to fulfill his life dream: to give his music to the world.
Recorded in Port Lincoln, the cusp of his European transformation, Laufen’s 2017 EP Goodbye is a master class in beauty and restraint – a nostalgic ride that captures his thoughts and feelings of a time of departure.

Laufen’s music is the sort that makes us stop and breathe: sombre falsetto melodies married to shimmering guitar; elemental orchestrations that yearn and plunge – the coastal poetry of the wild Australian imaginary.
Though a coherent and complete work, each song on Goodbye encapsulates its own character and theme. Halogen depicts the yearning distaste for the treadmill of the working life. Boulders is a thank you to Laufen’s nearest and dearest. Meanwhile, his
oldest song Dead Days confronts the doubts and fear of the unknown future.

From the heart and on the sleeve, Goodbye is Laufen’s life on record – endings and beginnings; risk, fear and love; the evolutionary choice to dream, and succeed.
With a strong touring schedule already under his belt since arriving in Berlin, Laufen continues to magnetise a loyal European fan base, and is currently working towards his first full-length studio album.
