Johannes Rachel - Guitar

I was born in 1976 in the age of 0 in Freiburg, Germany.

In the age of 6 I started paying the flute - I especially liked the overblow techniques!

Later I switched to the piano and once listened to my uncle playing a blues on the electric guitar. Since then it was my greatest wish to play the guitar, preferably the electric, which I finally did.

After having played in my first real Metal band, I discovered the Jazzrock and won a CD production with my second band in a newcomer contest.

From 2001 on I studied Jazz and Pop music at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with subject guitar. After my graduation I moved to Karlsruhe and worked there as guitarist, producer and guitar teacher.

I also play with these bands: Karlsgroove, Radiosoul, Frau Schlüter, Makariba and others. My great passion is Black music - Soul, Reggae, Funk, R'n'B and their origins. As Maceo Parker said: Shake everything you've got!
