Music from Germany/ the US – Iggy & The German Kids

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”:
