On "These Are The Parts", the latest album by The Night Gardener, the singer-songwriter goes full circle. The 32-year-old, raised just outside Berlin and living in the heart of the city now, spent his twenties busking and traveling across Europe, finding his voice and songs. With a background in concept art, he uses his music to explore themes of identity, escapism, defeat and healing. As a solo act, he brings a wide dynamic range to the stage, with the help of multiple effects, hybrid signals and the occasional loop.
For all those who love the music of Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, Leonard Cohen, Julien Baker or Gregory Alan Isakov, and for many other people.
