"Gruntz; James Gruntz"

James Gruntz writes his own songs, plays the piano and the guitar and sings - and does all this really good! He calls his sound 'postpopular music - pop with one night to sleep on it', und he's going to make this world a better one! It is to hope for the world to listen to James Gruntz and his band. With his voice, which is convincing in both soul and rock parts, a strongly developed sense for songwriting, catchy tunes and songs that combine the easinesss of pop with the deepness of soul and the roughness of rock, he reminds me of Seven and William White, which is of course to be taken as a compliment! My favourites are the scanty instrumented 'Killing You' and the opener with the sensuous title 'Here I Am'.

Bio

James Gruntz is doing postpopular music. It's pop with one night to sleep on it. It's music that affects people without any stylistic restrictions or capitalistic intensoins. The sound goes from Pop over Blues to Soul and Rock. And if an ukulele gets combined with a dance-beat; that's James Gruntz.
