He closed the door on his successful corporate career and took a decisive leap toward his true passion: to deeply explore song writing, recording and live performance and to share the music he finds in his heart – peaceful and moving that will make you stop and listen. Stefan Drechsel released his debut single The Blue Yonder in April, laying the blueprint for his album Here and Now, to be published this summer.

I can’t get The Blue Yonder out of my mind. It’s like a perfect blend of Leonard Cohen without the monotony, Nick Drake without the shadows and Coldplay without the glamour. I am constantly whistling and humming the tune. Soul touching!

About Stefan Drechsel

Stefan Drechsel’s music will make you stop and listen.

Stefan has a unique ability to combine voice and guitar with equal passion and skill. His songs tell stories from the heart and have an undeniable ability to make you pause in the chaos, and listen. His warm and peaceful sound, carried by his beautifully layered voice will connect you with an inner sense of magic, reminding you why you love music.

Spontaneity and imagination are at the heart of Stefan’s music, be that in live performance, threaded through his lyrics or expressed through masterful, intricate exploration of the acoustic guitar. In the words of one fan:

“When Stefan performs I hear an orchestra of moving sounds, and even in his quieter songs I always hear more.”

Stefan incorporates his visual art (photography and video) into his music, creating a feast for the senses. Every single from his debut album Here and Now — released July 2012 — will be accompanied by video that will spark even the most reluctant imagination.

The European Here and Now album tour is planned for summer/ autumn 2012. Dates to be announced.

Stefan was born in Germany and lives in London and has been creating music as a solo artist and collaboratively since the early nineties.

The Blue Yonder is available on iTunes, Amazon (the single CD includes the video) and all major distributors. The quote on this press release is from a fan on facebook.
