Two gentlemen in suit jackets, cradling black guitars, will cast their sonic spells at Berlin's Sowieso a Saturday in May...
Fred Kinbom (SWE):
"...an artist that has found a sound so unique and contemporary, that it belies comparison to stand on its own as a testament of Kinbom's artistic creativity." - Floorshime Zipper Boots
"Oil is amazing and Kinbom’s talent is extraordinary." - 4.5/5 stars - Renowned For Sound
Fredrik Kinbom mainly plays the lap steel slide guitar, but the way he plays it sounds nothing like the hawaiian or country sound most people would associate with the lap steel. He really creates his own sonic universe.
At this show he will also premiere some songs from a theatre song cycle he has written in collaboration with German playwright Sonja Kessner.
Cam Butler (AUS):
Cam Butler (Cam Butler & The Shadows Of Love, The Coralinas, Ron S. Peno & The Superstitions, Silver Ray) is a Melbourne (Australia) & occasionally Berlin based guitarist and composer. He is a unique electric guitarist with an instantly recognisable sound. Rather than relying on fx, Cam uses loops, plectrums, his fingers, brushes, capos and tunings to fashion his soulful, 21st century guitar music.
