Live concert at be’kech – every Thursday
► 20th September with Charlie Grant and Ivo Vollering
Ivo Vollering is a 33 year old solo guitarist from Berlin. He started his music education during high school, studying with Andy Malecek rock guitar. After a few years of nothing (studying ‘something useful’ in the form of a BSc in Chemistry, starting a family and other things), he decided to get back to music, this time moving towards Jazz. After taking lessons with Martin Werner and teaming up with different jazz buddies, he finally, in 2009, went on to enrol at the ArtEZ Conservatorium Arnhem (Netherlands) studying Jazz/Fusion Guitar with Bernhard Reinke. Despite engaging in various projects since that time – including studio work, playing as a sideman for various vocalists, and writing for his own fusion and pop formations – he has always come back to what he considers most fascinating: finger style guitar.
Since then he started to focus his energy on this particular style, writing and arranging his own compositions and performing solo concerts on a regular basis.
By the end of 2017 he released his second album called “Happy New Home” which is available worldwide on digital music platforms and through his website.
Berlin based singer/songwriter Charlie Grant got his first break in music as a songwriter for hire in London. After landing his first publishing deal with EMI, he got busy writing songs for lots of up-and-coming talents as well as some bigger names in Germany and the UK – such as former Spice Girl Melanie C, Michael Patrick Kelly, Simply Red, Robert Miles and Leslie Clio among others.
However, the dream of writing and releasing music as an artist in his own right refused to stay quiet for long and kept pestering him from the back of his mind. So, pulling in favours and forming a new currency based on pints and beer owed to various musician friends and studio owners, Charlie got used to recording in the dead of night and set to work on a set of songs focused on musicianship, storytelling, song craft, and a love for 1970s soft rockers like The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Bread and Tom Petty.
Charlie has three EP’s (Turn into Ghosts, Chemistry and Astronaut) released digitally worldwide on Spotify, iTunes and all the usual outlets. In the last two months he has released two singles, I Got the Fear and Stay Down.
