Over the past few years, the guitarist David Sick has become one of the new discoveries gaining considerable attention in the music scene. His inspiring performance at the international Open String Festival where he was awarded 1st prize, his concerts during the international Zeven Festival or at the Semper Opera in Dresden, as well as the radio programmes with the stations MDR and Deutschlandradio Berlin are only some of the numerous highlights of the past years.
After studying classical guitar at the Weimar Music College, he turned his back on the music of past centuries and developed his very own language of music. He was contracted by the reputable label Acoustic Music Records, and his solo debut “Industrial Blues”, released in November 2004, was introduced throughout Germany during a concert tour. His music is impressively powerful and intense – yet always of dance-like ease. His interptretation of pop-classics by Michael Jackson, ABBA or Diana Ross are both an acoustic as well as a visual experience.
David Sick teaches at the Dresden Music College in the field of guitar and world-music focusing on fingerstyle. He can be seen on stage as a soloist and together with Mara von Ferne as “Mara & David”. Two CDs of the duo have already been released with ozella music: “Sixteen Secrets” (2006) and “Once We Were Gods” (2009).
Another solo-CD is expected to be released in 2010 …
