// The Chuck Leavell Project //

What a journey! After more than a year of intensive planning, studio and coordination work, I am proud to present my second studio album „The Chuck Leavell Project“ in May 2019.

This is fully dedicated to my great idol, Chuck Leavell. Chuck has been the keyboard player and musical director of the Rolling Stones for more than 35 years and has worked with several other well known artists.


In 10 music studios along with almost 20 musician friends and 6 special guests I have reinterpreted and recorded 12 selected songs which would not be what they are today without Chuck‘s musical influence.

I am very grateful for your music, your inspiration and first of all for your friendship.

Since March 2020 the CD is displayed in the Swiss Rock&Pop Museum:

In the following blog you can find all information about the creation of the album:
