I’m a multi-instrumental live and studio musician with many years of experience in various musical formations and styles.
My main instruments are bass (electric and upright), guitar, french horn, drums and percussion; I also play a bit of piano, trumpet, trombone, synth, and others.
Check out my current projects below!

Bateau Ivre’s Post-Apocalyptic Art Pop conjures up images of barren deserts, mist-shrouded jungles and stormy seas. The words take you to the depths of human existence between hope and despair. Against Nick’s and Tobi’s timeless backdrop incorporating guitar-pop and Yiddish folk songs, ambient electronics and contemporary classical music, Paul’s wistful voice, reminiscent of Jeff Buckley and Thom Yorke, rises from mysterious murmurs to emotional falsettos.
Ludolf Kuchenbuch – sax
Gerhard A. Schiewe – acc
Paul Kuchenbuch – b

Music with heart and soul… music to dance to… music with a message. Four musicians from Congo/Angola and one from Germany present a blend of African rhythms and catchy melodies from intimate to energetic, with lyrics in Lingala, Kikongo, French, English, and German.
