RECORDING THE ALBUM (Italy/November 2017)

Right now we are planning the recording of our debut Album! It takes a lot of energy and time as you can imagine. so sometimes we forget to keep you updated what we actually do or want to do, but this way would like to Change that.

In November we go to Fabio´s hometown Cavallino Treporti Close to Venice. With very good friends of him we record around 14 Songs in a nice Studio. We want to take our time to let the Songs grow as they should. Some will be simple, some will be big with choir, piano or Cello. Right now we think about the artwork and how the Songs are connected. It´s all an inspiring, exhausting and energetic experience at the same time. 

 

For now, stay tuned for any News, we might Need your Support if you want to preorder the Album and most of all you can look Forward for some new Music of us. 

We hope to see you soon and thanks a lot for the Support in advance.

Take care!

ITALY SUMMER TOUR 2017

It is summer! Time to travel and to enjoy the world all around. And we have a sweet plan coming up. Fabio´s hometown is close to Venice (Italy) where he knows a lot of friendly people. He organized four concerts at various nice locations in this area. His brother Carlo Targhetta helped us a lot with making a great flyer and poster. And our good friend Riccardo Tonon supports us by playing the lead guitar! Thank you all so much!

It will be a great time to play concerts in beach bars, discover the area around and relax outside of Berlin. All the money we get will be used for our debutalbum which will be recorded in this area in November 2017. We are looking very much forward to this and start to plan everything already. But for now we want to play this summer!

If you are from there: Come around and say Hi!

If not: Stay tuned for some videos, pictures and recordings.

Have an awesome summer and hopefully see you soon!

 

Alexander Peppler and the Soulshaker

"A Singer-Songwriter from Witzenhausen and a percussionist from Venice met in Berlin end of 2015. A random encounter brought together two poles that complement each other as good friends and musicians: melody and groove, heart and hand, like moon and sun, air and earth. The open-hearted songs written by Alex in midnight silence have grown through the powerful company of Fabio as they did not expect. Busking made them discover the dynamic of a dreamy voice and a grounding beat that feels both deep and smooth, heavy and loose. Since then they love to share it with people in Berliner bars, various festivals and any other welcoming places.

In April 2017 Anne Bausch on the Cello joint the band. She found her place within the group as a new dimension of depth making the music flowing like water.

 After 50 solo shows and one EP release by Alex they want to take the next big step together: End of 2017 they are going to record the debut album with friends close to Venice to capture this energy for everyone at home and forever.

We met on a common friend’s open stage in Moabit (Berlin), where we had the chance to jam together and appreciate each other’s footprint on the music and as good friends. Fabio is an Italian drummer and percussionist from Venice, who just discovered the beauty of Cajon and its adaptability to many music kinds, trying to bring a new personal flavour to the songs of Alex. It was November 2015 but we definitely start to play as a band around February 2016.

Since that moment, we have been practicing on Alex’s songs to improve them, to find a new power and to bring them to the people. First inside many windy metro stations, cold squares and crowded parks. Then to small bars, rooftop clubs and cool events.

We always keep that powerful attitude of our busker side, but we now care also about the deepness of the lyrics and the strength of intimate Songs.
