New beginnings also mean saying goodbye – to create a new chapter, you leave behind another, and farewell an old version of yourself.
In 2016, the Australian troubadour – a classically influenced singer and folk guitarist left everything behind in his coastal town Port Lincoln for a dream life on the European road.
A competent pianist at the age of 8, a trumpet player at 10, in his teens Laufen discovered the acoustic guitar and began writing own songs. After school, he began studying and working, however exhausting 60-hour weeks kept him from his goals, and the desire for self-realisation grew.
In 2016, he moved to Berlin to fulfil his life dream: to give his music to the world.
Recorded in Port Lincoln the cusp of his European transformation, Laufen’s 2017 EP Goodbye is a master class in beauty and restraint – a nostalgic ride that captures his thoughts and feelings of a time of departure.
Laufen’s music is the sort that makes us stop and breathe: sombre falsetto melodies married to shimmering guitar; elemental orchestrations that yearn and plunge – the coastal poetry of the wild Australian imaginary.
With a strong touring schedule already under his belt since arriving in Berlin, Laufen continues to magnetise a loyal European fan base, and is currently working towards his first full-length studio album.
