"The most impressive songs usually reflect life experiences, and AVEC demonstrates that. That the young Austrian artist writes from the heart becomes clear in every verse and every refrain."                                                                                                           (Eurosonic Norderslaag Festival, Red.)The best songs are often based on the best stories. And they are true at best: since AVEC's first EP "Heartbeats" was released in 2015, the young Austrian musician, by her skills, has been shaking up well the image of what we thought we knew about deeply honest pop music.  To describe songs, intentions, artists is not an easy matter. Yet with AVEC it is: music is always at its best when it is not born out of wanting, but out of having to..

Kika Sprangers Quintet

Kika Sprangers: Soprano and alto saxophone 

Anna Serierse: Vocals 

Koen Schalkwijk: Piano and wurlitzer 

Alessandro Fongaro: Double bass 

Willem Romers : Drums 

Saxophonist and composer Kika Sprangers (1994) her music balances on a fine line between a person’s vulnerability and strength. A vision to combine the two, shared musically through a love for unorthodox instrumentation and tension arcs meant for symphonic passages or a heavy silence. Her new quintet album Mind’s Eye is an ode to imagination.

With the Kika Sprangers Quintet they seamlessly blend wordless vocals (Anna Serierse) with saxophone, supported by a rich, dynamic rhythm section. Colouring Kika’s narrative compositions, intentionally unstructured and unexpected, pulling at the audience’s anticipations. Her style automatically and deceptively drags you along, yet remains unpredictable. Jazz music that sweeps from silence to symphonic proportions without resulting in kitschy cliches.

Karin Hammar Fab4

Karin Hammar: trombone    
Andreas Hourdakis: guitar    
Niklas Fernqvist: bass

Karin Hammar Fab 4 has existed since 2014. The group´s first CD ”Imprints” (Red Horn Records) was released 2016 and was warmly welcomed by the critics in Sweden, In 2018, the second CD ”Circles” (Prophone/Naxos) was released and has been receiving very positive response from international jazz press such as American Down Beat, German Jazz Thing and Austrian Concerto.
In 2020, the group released their latest CD ”Strings Attached” - a collaboration with a harmonica soloist from Paris - Olivier Ker Ourio - and a string quartet.The CD got overwhelming reviews in German press.
Karin Hammar uses guitar as the harmonic ”generator” which creates an open group sound, close to both bossa nova and blues but always with the lyrical, melodical jazz as musical compass.
The guitar is played by the masterful Andreas Hourdakis and the rest of the rhythm section consists of Niklas Fernqvist (bass) and Fredrik Rundqvist (drums) who often appears in some of Sweden’s most internationally claimed groups.
