Biography

Niels Cremer: After spending almost a decade as a band- and session-musician in Taipei/Taiwan and making a new start back in his native Germany as multi-instrumentalist (on guitar, double bass, mandolin, blues harp and vocals) for American singer Marybeth D’Amico, Niels finally fulfilled his longstanding ambition to put together a classic singer-songwriter solo-act. Today, accompanying himself on guitar and blues-harp, Niels performs his own sometimes quiet, sometimes energetic, but always expressive and powerful songs that are influenced by such musical genres as folk, country, blues, rock and funk. Over the years, Niels’ repertoire has developed into an authentic, passionate and vibrant Americana experience which roots in the tradition of hand-made acoustic folk music, yet is clearly contemporary.

Niels Cremer: Nach fast einem Jahrzehnt als Band- und Session-Musiker in Taipei/Taiwan und musikalischem Neueinstieg in Deutschland als Multiinstrumentalist (auf Gitarre, Kontrabass, Mandoline, Blues-Harp & Gesang) bei der amerikanischen Sängerin Marybeth D’Amico erfüllte Niels sich seinen Traum eines eigenen klassischen Singer-Songwriter solo-acts. Heute spielt Niels mit akustischer Gitarre, Gesang und der ein oder anderen Blues-Harp-Einlage seine eigenen mal ruhigen, mal bewegten, aber immer ausdrucksstarken und kraftvollen songs die mal von Folk, Country, Blues, Rock oder auch Funk beeinflusst sind. Sein Repertoire hat sich über die Jahre zu einer authentischen, einfühlsamen und gleichzeitig energiegeladenen Americana Erfahrung entwickelt, verankert in der Tradition handgemachter akustischer Folk Musik ohne je überholt zu wirken.

About Niels:

"Real cool sound and a very nice job of songwriting." Randy Burns, NY, musician

~

"Good stuff nice playing, writing and good voice too, it’s very authentic "Americana." Gary Earl, LA, producer

~

"The accompaniment of multi-instrumentalist Niels Cremer fit perfectly. Whether he is playing guitar, mandolin, upright bass or harmonica - the former blues musician shows himself to great advantage in all of the songs. The harmonies of the duo are also a strong point." (Landsberger Tagblatt, July 2007 on a duo performance with Marybeth D'Amico)

~

"The formal announcement was 'A Performance by Marybeth D'Amico, accompanied by Niels Cremer'. That however does not do justice to Niels Cremer's performance, who was clearly on a par with his duet-partner during yesterday's house concert. The teamwork of Cremer and D'Amico ensured a memorable evening with relaxed guitar music." (House concert, Rotterdam, Dutch tour, 10/2007)
