Whereas Jan Kerscher has a very clear mission as a producer, working on his own music turns out to be a lot more complicated. Having to persist the ears of both Jan being a musician and a producer, the initial song ideas have a really long way to go. Consequently, Kerscher plays almost all the instruments in his songs himself.
Like Lovers points to numerous musical influences. In teenage years, Jan Kerscher was looking for energy and positivity in music over all. No wonder was he influenced by bands like the Beastie Boys, Rage Against The Machine and particularly At The Drive-In. Being a young adult, Jan’s music taste became a bit dodgier. He started getting lost in the works of Björk, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley & Co. Primarily, this soundtrack played with his mind and shaped a sensitive emotionality that eventually find its way into his own music. Later on, these emotions got organized neatly by his new found love of Math Rock and that is the way it still is to this day. Most of all it is the interaction between the raw energy, the technical level but also strong emotions that Kerscher finds fascinating about bands like Three Trapped Tigers, TTNG oder CHON.
