SIT ´N´ RUDI
SINGER/ SONGWRITER DUO
Cataleya Fay über
...haben die - heutzutage wirklich seltene Gabe - mit derart verzaubernden Melodien, zarten Gitarrenwelten und mit den sich wirklich unglaublich perfekt ergänzenden Gesangstimmen eine beinahe magische Klanglandschaft zu weben, der man sich unmöglich entziehen kann und man sich als Lauscher tatsächlich wünscht, das dies bitte niemals enden möge.
Cataleya Fay on
They have a nowadays really rare gift to weave - with such enchanting melodies, delicate guitar worlds and with the really incredibly perfectly complementary vocal voices - an almost magical soundscape, from which one can not possibly escape and one actually wishes as a listener that this please never ends.
That is… Sitara Schmitz and Rudolf Koenen, an acoustic singer/songwriter duo based in Cologne, Germany.
In this project they create moments put into atmospheric sound and smooth vocals – let´s call it flower folk…
Two voices and two guitars speckled with exotic bamboo flute.
Soft tones in noisy times.
Handmade, fragile but as delicate as a butterfly.
Their songs are about honouring nature, questioning responsabilities, going through hard times but keeping it light. Or even about distancing and coming close, letting moments happen – or simple love songs.
Sit´n´Rudi use both languages, English and German.
How it all began...
When quite some years ago musician Rudolf organized concerts, he saw Sitara playing her songs live on stage. Impressed by her performance he instantly invited her to join a singer/songwriter rounding called HandMadeMusic. They became members of each other‘s band till one day the wish came up to start a duo project. This is how Sit´n´Rudi was born.
Playing together led to writing songs together, which is an exciting process for both of them.
Where ideas melt and evolve and when two come to one – it is always a gain!
Where we are now…
Love´n´Share, the new album!
This year is the year of Sit´n´Rudi´s first release. Starting with the single “King of Lions“ in July – which is promoted in Dolby Atmos as well – they are going to put out one track per week from mid August on to finally present the full album in October 2020.
King of Lions
Release coming in July 2020
The King of Lions is a special moment in the life of Sitara. A song about saying goodbye with a smooth and sweet vibe. At the same time strong and passionate. Performed just with guitars and voices this is coming close to your ear.
The release of this song will also be in Dolby Atmos! So even more enjoy the purity of sound. Feel embraced by the voices and dive into the moment...
