Ann & Bones:
As a little girl Ann Weller was setting fairy-tales into music on her piano. Today she writes songs together with producer and guitarist Borils Meinhold and drummer Benny Glass. Her warm, fragile voice and her classically influenced piano style are enveloped in minimalistic drum grooves and a mystic-surf guitar. It shines through that the band is resident within the Berlin electronic club scene.
*The American guitar player Michael Di Lalla will be supporting Ann’s solo show
Michael Di Lalla:
A lifelong New Yorker, Michael is an accomplished songwriter, guitarist, producer and music educator. In his 20 year music career, he has worked with some of the industry's best. His compelling music has been featured in television around the world including MTV, ABC, CBS, BBC among many others. He is the lead singer and guitarist for his melodic indie rock band Keygrip, who to date, have released 2 full length albums.
