Born in 1970, Ralph Maten discovered the piano at an early age. His first solo album "Life in Misery" (Amp-Media) was released in 1996.
Music full of melancholy.
In 2014 the German press gave him the very fitting nickname "Samtmann" for the first time. The reason for this was the release of his fifth solo album "Yours & Mine (Live 2014)" (Amp-Media).
In 2018 his sixth solo album “Cheers For Tears” (Amp-Media / Timezone / Believe) enchanted many friends of melancholic music. This album captivates with a grand deceleration.
With a song recorded on the album "Friday I'm In Love" (cover of his favorite band from the eighties, The Cure), Ralph Maten launched the #Fridaylove (Unicef) campaign in 2019.
In 2020 his 7th solo album "Colors" will be available, which sets new standards and could hardly be more diverse.
Ralph Maten is a songwriter, music producer, singer (rock / blues & jazz) & pianist (Torch Music & Adult Contemporary).
In his stage shows, Maten convinced with the live use of his most important instrument: his strong voice.
In the studio area, he was already allowed to lend a hand for great remix productions by Udo Lindenberg, Wir sind Helden, Glashaus, Yello, Funker Vogt.
Ralph Maten sang at big Dark Wave & EDM festivals for eight years; he played in the opening act of strange artists like Marilyn Manson, Wolfsheim, HIM, De / Vision and his youth idol Marc Almond (Soft Cell).
But he reinvented himself, back to the small clubs - gets in touch.
