Above all, Jules is a surfer. For more than ten years the German-born artist has been living his life according in tune and rhythm with the ocean.
In summer, he earns his living as a surf instructor, in winter as a musician and songwriter. Accordingly, the musical genre “JULES AHOI & THE DEEPSEA ORCHESTRA”, have dedicated themselves to is “SALTWATERFOLK”. Every note, every line is inspired by the sea, which is not only the reason for innumerable road trips, but also for his decision to relocate to the south of France in spring 2015. Here he created songs that convey the lifestyle and feelings of a runaway and invite the listener to dream of endless summers and nights in a VW campervan.
