Michael Moravek (DE) @ Fanklub Night

12. August 2022
EN: Michael Moravek is an admirer of Bob Dylan’s art in song and lyrics, a lover of the poetry of Arthur Rimbaud, Jaroslav Seifert and William Blake, influenced by the literature of Herman Melville, Bernard Malamud, Paul Auster and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. His musical interest lies in old gospel songs and in the beginnings of the song narrative, for which musicians like Bessie Smith, Robert Johnson or Blind Lemon Jefferson stand.
He sees songwriting as a craft and therefore appreciates the music of artists like Nits, Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, Craig Finn or Richmond Fontaine.

DE: Michael Moravek ist Bewunderer von Bob Dylans Kunst in Song und Text, Liebhaber der Lyrik von Arthur Rimbaud, Jaroslav Seifert und William Blake, beeinflusst durch die Literatur von Herman Melville, Bernard Malamud, Paul Auster und Fjodor Dostojewskij. Sein musikalisches Interesse liegt in alten Gospelsongs und in den Anfängen der Songerzählung, für die Musiker*innen wie Bessie Smith, Robert Johnson oder Blind Lemon Jefferson stehen.
Songwriting versteht er als Handwerkskunst und schätzt daher die Musik von Künstler*innen wie Nits, Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, Craig Finn oder Richmond Fontaine.


Fanklub, the new direct-to-fan platform for bands, presents four exciting acts on the Fanklub Stage: Celia May grew up in the fog of the big German city and embraces us with her intimate electro-pop. Michael Moravek, on the other hand, is a songwriter of theatrical guise, bringing his lyrical folk to the Fanklub Stage in band formation. Local heroes are the progressive grunge rockers YATWA and the dadaistic lofi storytellers Olgas Boris.
We are looking forward to the musical diversity and an exciting Waves Festival!
