As a drummer, Christian Nowak has worked for a number of national and international musicians such as Gary Brooker (Procol Harum), Barry Ryan, Bobby Kimball (Toto) and Chuck Berry. Now he is presenting his first solo album as a composer and keyboardist with "Nachklang". In order to set new musical goals, you need to look back at your own roots from time to time. “There was a Fender Rhodes with a Roland JazzChorus, an Oberheim, a MiniMoog, a tape echo machine and a TEAK four-track tape machine. Terrific!«
Against this background, a thoughtful album was created that is connected to a lifestyle of bygone days. Impressions that still resonate. »I still get goosebumps when I hear these sounds anywhere. We often sat smoking and drinking coffee in our student butze and listened to the latest albums by Steely Dan, Yes, Gentle Giant, Zappa and and and... Now I've combined these timeless sounds with modern sounds. So I see my songs as a homage to my old "heroes" like George Duke, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Jan Hammer.«
»Of course, as a drummer, I also have other idols. But I see myself as a musician who always focuses on the whole package.” At some point, the sound will probably have to leave the body and return to the universe where it originally came from.
