It took nearly a decade for Werner Kitzmueller's ideas and songs to find their way to "Evasion," the first
album of this musician, originally from a small town in Lower Austria.
On "Evasion," Werner Kitzmueller succeeds at creating an unusual combination between
singer/songwriter pop and ensemble music in a somewhat "classical" orchestration. His baritone voice
(reminiscent at times of David Sylvian or Scott Walker) carries these melancholy, at times self-mocking,
but always very personal songs upon a cloud of piano, cello, and guitar melodies (with the support of
David Schweighart (Tupolev), Meaghan Burke and Matthias Frey (Sweet, Sweet Moon), to name a
few). The lyrics, both in German and English, are gripping in their balanced simplicity and honesty,
never crossing the line into overwrought displays of pathos but just telling it like it is -- as we do when
we say this is one of the best singer/songwriter records of recent years, and a perfect record for the joys
and woes of autumn.
The Werner Kitzmueller 7-inch "Just You" was released in 2009, and Werner Kitzmueller has played many concerts in Austria and Germany, stealing main acts such as Carla Bozulich and Joan as Policewoman's shows.
