Severin Trogbacher

Name: Severin Trogbacher

Born: 1983, Linz

Lives: Vienna

Instrument: Guitar

Musical beginnings: I received my first violin at the age of five, which I then chucked in years later for a grotty bass. This then had to give way a few months later to the instrument of my final calling, the electric guitar. The violin and the bass, together with a viola and some Jews' harps, kazoos and other frippery are still in my possession though, because I still haven't mastered the art of selling on eBay ...

Career highlights: Guitarist in the stage band in the ORF show Wahre Freunde (five series from 2004 - 2006), guitarist in the band for Starmania 2-winner Verena Pötzl (including appearances at Aerodrome 2004 and in the Wiener Stadthalle), studio guitarist for Kalle Arnoldy, participant in the German Bundesvision Song Contest 2007, on the single for the same event, and many more. Besides this, continuous work on my own projects, which are mostly resident in the jazz-rock genre ...

Favourite music: The top five CDs (in no particular order): Sting - Mercury Falling, Miles Davis - Live around the World, Erykah Badu - Baduizm Live, Dominic Miller - Second Nature, Me'shell Ndegéocello - Peace beyond Passion

On the Linz Europe Tour 2007 I looked forward to: Fish and mosquitoes. I'm very fond of animals.

In 2008 I was eager ... for the ultimate duel: the Danube versus the Rhine and Main, which would be better, which would be more beautiful, which would flow faster?

Did you know that ... as a result of boredom at school between 1999 and 2001, I memorised pi to 50 decimal places? It's all gone again now of course ...
