Biography

Kris Pohlmann http://www.krispohlmann.com/ The Roots: Kris Pohlmann was born in 1977, near London, England. At the age of 15 he was inspired by Status Quo to start learning the guitar. In those early days his world centered on Quo, ZZ Top, Free & Cream. Three years later, on his way to school, Kris discovered Stevie Ray Vaughan on the front cover of a guitar magazine. He bought his greatest hits cassette and was immediately hooked. Kris then delved deeper into the world of blues, exploring artists like Freddie King, Albert King, Jeff Healey, Rory Gallagher and, above all, Gary Moore. His tone, technique and rock approach to playing blues would become Kris’ biggest inspiration. At the age of 22 Kris moved to Germany and has lived there ever since. In 2003 Kris started to write his own songs and in 2005 he formed his first band. His admiration for the blues quickly developed into passion.

Kris Pohlmann Band
Kris wanted to play his songs live on stage and perform to people. Forming a band was the obvious step. With Warren Richardson (Bass) and soon after, Elmar Stolley (Drums) he had found the right musicians. The trio would quickly gain a reputation as an energetic and entertaining live act. Following numerous concerts and support slots (for Eric Gales & Nine Below Zero) they recorded their debut album ‘New Resolution’ in 2009. The album was warmly received by the press and the German Rock Music Association awarded the band with the prize ‘Best Blues Band’ at the end of 2009. On the back of this release the band toured Germany and showed enthusiastic crowds around the country that the award was justified.
