Yusuf Sahilli might sound like a blues man, or a new romantic, growling about wild nights spent searching, or letting his sweet tenor voice indulge in lustful melancholy moods. Fully buzzed on global sounds and brimming with boundless feel good passion and sympathy for the whole wide world. Young Yusuf had connected to the Alternative Rock soundtrack of his generation and dug deep and fast into the history of the trade. From the Rock dinosaurs and the golden age of Pop through the Hippie era, the Beat of the Sixties and the protest movement right down to the founding fathers of the Blues in the Delta. Half Turk and half Arab. German education. Lived in Australia and Liverpool. Travelled the world. Works for a global player in international pop music, promoting artists from Africa to the Big Apple, Nubian Classical to Hip-Hop, Arabs to Jews. He is open-minded, affable, sociable. Fancies a little party – or a big one! Likes things fast. Carries a smile behind his shades. And takes his guitar, keys and pedal steel to lend an Indie Rock / Nu Folk / Global Pop thought to the meaning of it all. What are we really doin’ on this planet? Where are we goin’? What will remain of us when we leave? And what are we runnin’ on before that will happen? Last one is easy – love and compassion! If those are assured, things will fall into place pretty fast. Even with the help of the coffee grounds that finally persuaded his father to buy him his first electric guitar.
