Joris is a German singer/ songwriter. He grew up in the countryside. The music came into his life when he was 5 years old. Back then the parents presented Joris with a drum kit. The best gift ever. Two years later he started learning to play the piano. And it didn´t take a long time until Joris wrote his first song - for "his love" Emma Watson.
After the high-school graduation it was time to leave home. Joris moved to Berlin where he studied two semesters sound and music production. Then Joris gravitated towards Mannheim where he visited the Popakademie. Songwriting, composing, jobbing as Backliner - Joris enjoyed the time and gained experience. He also met his henceforth band members.
So in 2014 Joris and Band started working on their first album. After 1.5 years of work in a studio in Berlin the album "Hoffnungslos hoffnungsvoll" (hoplessly hopefull) was released.
The album is pure and authentic. The sound is warm and 100 % analog. Joris got a gentle voice which can be loud and rough as well. And with that voice he tells his stories...
In 2015 Joris won the Audi Generation Award 2015, category Musik and in 2016 he was awarded with three ECHOs: - Newcomer national
- Critic award national
- Radio award
It'll be exciting to see what the future holds in store.
