Erik Leuthäuser Trio - In the Land of Susannah McCorkle (Vocal Jazz)
Erik Leuthäuser is an award-winning young German singer/songwriter/arranger based in Berlin using his native language and electronics to create his own concept of music somewhere between modern jazz and experimental pop. Based on his experiences as a young singer in a big city such as Berlin the only way to be is honest and dedicated: In life and in music. On the other hand he also honours jazz tradition by diving into lesser known jazz standards and the songs that his favorite vocalists Susannah McCorkle sang.
In May 2018 he released his 2nd studio record "Wünschen" on the prestigious record label MPS. Produced by American bass player Greg Cohen featuring Kurt Rosenwinkel (guitar) and Joey Baron (drums). He won several international jazz prizes e.g. 1st prize of the Ella Fitzgerald Vocal Jazz Competition 2018. Furthermore he sang background for Quincy Jones, George Benson, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Jacob Collier. He recorded albums with Jazz legends such as Alan Broadbent and Ken Peplowski and will appear at Blues Alley with Allen Farnham on piano and Steve LaSpina on bass celebrating the music of Susannah McCorkle & more.
