Barbara Greshake

A classic case of experiential hearing: Sometimes it feels like sitting at the kitchen table with Barbara Greshake, either with Spezi or Käffchen, and talking about life, sometimes you have the feeling of leafing through her diary.

Pause for a moment. Feel exactly. "It always comes differently when you think." Living in the aha moment! The message is clear, the line is fluid. Thinking - yes, thinking broken - no. Barbara Greshake paints razor-sharp pictures, writes straightforward, clever texts. This is Deutschpop in its purest form: voice and guitar, in Nordic combination. The native Rhinelander has lived in Hamburg since 2014, you can hear that. Dreamy straight thinking is best learned there. From Kettcar or Niels Frevert.

Life writes the best stories, they said. It is also Barbara's inspiration concerning the themes of her songs. Drawing the line, finally tackling the urgently needed change of scenery, the I in the We are looking for. Barbara Greshake has a love of detail and provides each of her songs with carefully selected words, so that you feel at home immediately. Arrived.
