BandFolkSinger/Songwriter

I play catchy, folky acoustic rock music in the style of Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz and Joshua Radin. I also emphasize on poetic and deep but still memorable lyrics that people can relate to. No matter my what mood your in, my music will always be just what you need in that very moment.

Biography

Born and raised in Cologne, (the most beautiful city in the world), I have always had a ‘thing’ for music. There was always a piano or guitar close to hand to pluck and plonk. Through the years I taught myself how to actually play those instruments and started writing my own songs. Since then I have been writing my own music and lyrics mostly about my own life experience. The biggest influences I have had over the years are artists like Dave Matthews, John Mayer and Joshua Radin or bands like the Barenaked Ladies and even the german punk band Die Ärzte. By always looking for original tunes and vocals lines I try to keep my music unique and fresh. I also emphasize on poetic and deep but still memorable lyrics that people can relate to. No matter my what mood your in, my music will always be just what you need in that very moment.

Lyrics

Nuria

Written By: Michael Borgard

Nuria my love, you picked up all the pieces of my broken heart
Nuria my love I hope we never part

Well I'd been holding on for a long long time
to a love that I could not make mine
But then you walked into my day and I know that I was saved.

Nuria my love, you picked up all the pieces of my broken heart
Nuria my love I wish we'd never part

I wish I'd met you sooner, I wouldn't have to say goodbye )
I wish I was a smoker, we would lean back and get high

Nuria my love, you picked up all the pieces of my broken heart
Nuria my love I hope we never part

All the mem'ries that I wish I had
are just worth dreaming if it's with you Nuria

Nuria my love, you healed my broken heart
Nuria my love I wish we'd never part

Breathe Two Winds

Written By: Michael Borgard

You breathe two winds
and I get intense
you don't mean no offence
but you breathe two winds

I know you notice me
yes I know that you do but why
why do you focus only
on my negativity

what you seek is misery
just to be able to stop loving me
and the wind is blowing away away away
my self-esteem

You breathe two winds
and I get intense
you don't mean no offence
but you breathe two winds

Lend me kisses as you please
but please don't turn your lips away from my mouth
as soon as you hear them say
your name out loud

Why don't you seek sweet memories
when your lips were touching mine
and the wind was blowing away away away
the strength of me

You breathe two winds
and I get intense
you don't mean no offence
but you breathe two winds

Why do you seek bad memories
just to continue to be hating me
and the wind was blowing away away away
my self-esteem

You breathe two winds
and I get intense
you don't mean no offence, you say, you say...
but you breathe two winds

You breathe two winds
and I get intense
you don't mean no offence
but you breathe two winds

Discography

I have not released a record yet, but hope to do so in the near future.

Set List

My set usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes. I play about 9 or 10 of my songs and include small cover-intros or outros before or after my own songs to spice it up a bit.
