of the music sounds like the kind of blues - jazzy
- folk you often find in movies, so when I discovered
that some of his sounds are in the flick 'Kings Cross
Angel', I wasn't at all surprised. I would totally
expect that more of his numbers will be picked up
by movie producers in the coming years.
music is surprising original for the blues - folk
genre, and its hard not to believe that eventually
Tobias Moldenhauer will have solid to strong name
value in Australia and beyond - that will equal if
not succeed his outstanding quality of music.
Guitarist-Singer-Songwriter of European background,
Tobias recorded his solo demo in Germany 2005, before
hitting the road to play music in both Hemispheres.
He has performed in a variety of countries, including
Germany, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic, Samoa
and Australia. The latest release Live at the
Red Shed received airplay across Australia and
was toured interstate. Tobias opened shows for artists
such as Neil Murray, Victor Martinez and performed
with musicians like Angus Diggs (of Jeff Lang, Bob
Brozman, Mia Dyson). Solo performances feature effect
pedal driven acoustic guitar, bottleneck slide resonator
guitar, Hawaiian lap steel guitar and explore different
genres with their roots in the Blues. Melodic fingerpicking
in open tunings coupled with soulful and haunting
vocals, Tobias material draws on a wide variety
of influences, though strives to put an original footprint
onto the sands of contemporary acoustic guitar music.
