Claus Hempler
Lille Vega, Copenhagen
22. November 2003

Claus Hempler is a newcomer as a solo artist, but he's not at all new on the Danish rock scene. Being a front figure in the band Fielfraz, he has played with many Danish musicians, such as Thomas Blachmann, Dicte, Ib Glindeman, Swan Lee a.o.
At Vega, the 22. November 2003, he was support at the concert by Kira and The Kindred Spirits (see here). I met Christina and Pernille Rosendahl in Vega's bar prior to the concert, and Pernille told me, that on 30. March 2004 Swan Lee's Record Company, Go Go Records, release his debut solo album, -being the first artist (beside Swan Lee themself) on their label.
He has a voice very much like David Bowie, and his songs are in the American singer/song writer fashion, late 1960's style. Sometimes you can even spot an early 1963-Bob Dylan in his way of singing. At least as a solo performer. I look foreward to hearing full band versions of his material, when his album is released.


The Set List:

01. Unkucky (?)
02. No One Loves You Like I Love You (?)
03. Love Song No. 5000
