Iggy & The German Kids is a collaboration between Singer/Songwriter Ignacio Uriarte and production duo DTC Music Productions.
Iggy is a 25 year old singer-songwriter from New York City. At the age of ten he became a member of the Metropolitan children’s chorus, where he sang in over thirty different operas along with performing solo pieces in Tosca, Magic Flute and Billy Bud. When his voice changed at 14 he started writing pop-songs influenced by his love of the Beatles. A self taught guitarist, bassist and pianist, Iggy also took two years of classical voice training after leaving the MET. Throughout college he played and toured with a number of rock bands.
After struggling as a indie-solo artist he began sending demos back in forth with two friends (Hubertus Dahlem and Frederic Todenhöfer) from Germany whom he had met In college. The three sparked an immediate chemistry that resulted in a prolific output of songs, undeniably the best work of his young career.
Over the past year the three of them have been working on what is going to be Iggy’s debut album as a solo artist. The new sound, characterized by elements of Brit-pop, electronica and classic Rock, infuses methodic and anthemic arrangements with strong melodies and clever lyrics (Source: Facebook). Listen to their great song “So Hard”:
The Able Tasmans were an indie band from Auckland, New Zealand, active from 1984 til 1996.

Ryan Weber starting his own solo project “REW<<” is best known for beeing part of Eric & Magill, where he wrote some pieces, e.g. ‘All those I know’. Born in Wisconsin, US, he grew up and started playing some music with friends there. He’s a part armenian and was traveling around the world for some years, getting influenced by different music styles as Lingala and Tarab music from Kenya. While he wrote REW<< , he was traveling back to the United States after living in Kenya for two years. He describes this record as his emotions he felt while traveling and ending a chapter in his life. Ryan Weber wrote and recorded in hotel rooms in Kenya, India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Malaysia. He describes this in this way: ‘I think rather than being influenced by genre, I’m influenced by my surrounding, music is a component of surrounding, but not the whole, as am I, thus I try to channel what I’m feeling in that setting.’ Listen to “Departeueres“, an amazing collection of records, fitting perfectly here. Thanks Ryan Weber for these amazing sounds!
“While listening to Ryan Weber’s album “Departeueres” you could really chill down and enjoy these amazing soft dream pop melodies”
