Koko & Kanzi / In Evil Long

Monday, March 05, 2018

The new single Koko & Kanzi is now available digitally. I added a cover that I recorded last week as a b-side. In Evil Long is a folk song found in The Shenandoah Harmony as an a-capalla version from 1848. I like how the song sounds like a ghost story and thought it would sound nice with more guitar.

Hans Sølo → Grizzly Bird

Thursday, March 01, 2018

I decided I will no longer be making music under the name Hans Sølo. Relax, I will continue to make music. But I'm tired of being asked the same questions over and over. "Do you like Star Wars?" "Is the pun intentional?" "Why does it say solo, when there are other people on stage?" But most of all, the name is impossible to google. All you get is Star Wars. And it's impossible to find my videos on Youtube. All you see is Hip Hop by the various other musicians called Hans Solo. And Star Wars, of course. I don't like being influenced in my choice of name by computers and algorithms, but unfortunately in these times, this matters. A lot.

So from now on, I will be making music under the moniker Grizzly Bird. Try a search on Youtube. You will find my videos, finally. The show in Düsseldorf on Tuesday will be the first one as Grizzly Bird.
