With music inspired by slow music of every kind, and lyrics that are mostly introverted and sometimes cryptic, Kurt's songs are for those who like a rainy day, a cup of coffee, chocolate, bottled beer, lots of free time, the north, the sea - and preferably some, most or all of those combined. Kurt is an amateur cook, learned sociologist, computer nerd, film freak, failed student of philosophy, rotten dancer, determined nice person, ardent eater of meat, translator, underdeveloped guitarist, avid drinker of beer and musician. Born in 1972, in New York USA, to a Scottish mother and a Bavarian Father, he is known to be exceedingly upbeat and moderately lazy. He has lived in Germany for most of his life. Besides his solo efforts, he is also guitarist, co-vocalist and songwriter in the German band 'Renz bei Rechner'. Kurt is currently living in Germany, in the university town of Tuebingen. He has studied philosophy, sociology and political science, but is not at all sure as to what purpose. 'Raintracks' - released in 2004 - is his first solo album, and contains a selection of songs written as far back as 1993. 'Slow songs for rainy days is what best describes my songs' says Kurt - 'even the ones that are meant to be upbeat and even funny tend to have a very melancholic feel to them'.
