A personal note from Synthie:
"Those of you who know me well will know that I have an unhealthy fascination for analogue synths (hence the name). You'll also know that music has always been an integral part of my life. Apparently the first time I picked up a microphone and stormed onto a stage to sing I was 5. My first instrument was an acoustic guitar when I was 8, a flute when i was 9, a melodica with 12 years of age, a drum kit at 15, a keyboard at 16, the piano at 22, bass guitar at 26... and the synthesiser actually came after that. The electric guitar has recently made its nest in my life too.
While my former work as a band promoter was pretty exciting, the drive to make my own music became stronger.
As it turns out, though, circumstances only allowed me to become a full-time musician in 2012. After intensive music and vocal training, I finally launched my solo musical adventure - Synthie dB Shock - in 2013.
I write all the music and lyrics, play all the instruments myself and do all the singing (no auto-tune!). While I do prefer using real-world instruments whenever possible, I do integrate the odd software instrument here and there... after all, Synthie dB Shock is a hybrid phenomenon whereby analogue and digital are intertwined.
My debut E.P. - "Factory Reset" - was released on June 7th, 2013 and has been distributed on iTunes, among other platforms. My music can be heard on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and SoundCloud. GOOD NEWS: my new single is due for release in January 2019! As always, you will be kept informed via this website's NEWS section, as well as over the social media.
Thanks a lot for visiting my page and for sharing and buying my music - which is essential for us indie artists out there."
