Line up 2018: Faber
by Miriam Rossius
This 24 year old guy from Switzerland is a phenomenon. At first glance his music doesn’t match chart expectations, but very soon he could sign a major label contract and his first longplayer already was a top 20 success. Chansonnier Jacques Brel is one of his role models, Faber’s own music is situated between Chanson, Folk, Pop, Polka, Punk, Balkan and other elements. His German lyrics can be poetic or crude and seem to strike a chord especially with young fans, but also an audience clearly beyond their mid twenties.
