Erik Leuthäuser is the most recent “new recruit” at the BAR JEDER VERNUNFT. The young singer, already a well-known name in certain circles, with his dreamily beautiful voice, together with his on-stage guests, presents his unique musical concept somewhere between modern chanson, pop and serene jazz.
With his sensitive singing style, he elevates the German language to a wondrous level, honest and free of clichés, inspired by his experiences as a crosser of boundaries in the metropolis Berlin.
Close-by and yet strangely distant spheres, curious stories from the here and now, songs about a longing for loneliness and the absurdity of life: he has reinterpreted familiar pieces, while others are poems and songs set to music by Dota Kehr and others. And there are also standards by the likes of Wayne Shorter or Duke Ellington, which Leuthäuser has texted in German.
He also performs some own compositions – and all of these songs have one thing in common: Erik Leuthäuser’s desires.
