2nd single of the upcoming album released via Papercup Records.
It’s been a while; so here’s a little update to new releases etc. I’m very happy these things are out there now, since I’ve been working on them for quite a while:
DAVID HELM & JOZEF DUMOULIN – NO-EYED DEER (out on Anunaki Tabla, June 30th 2022) This record will also be released on vinyl later this year. Just recieved the test pressing, it sounds awesome!
I made two little trailers for this one:
MAREK JOHNSON – OWLS is out on Papercup Records, July 1st 2022. It’s the first single of the album „at home again, singing“ which will be released in October, also on vinyl. My friend Jakob Gengenbach made a very nice video for this one. You can also buy the track on bandcamp.
In other news I’m looking forward to play the opening night at COLOGNE JAZZWEEK with PLACEBO DOMINGO (Philip Zoubek, Dominik Mahnig, myself) + Ava Mendoza + Jozef Dumoulin, August 13th 2022.
Here’s a little something from earlier this year
Also excited about a show with Sam Amidon, Pablo Held, Andi Haberl, Ketija Ringa Karahona, Nils Klein and myself September 30th 2022 at the Loft Cologne, playing Sam’s songs.
Concerning the past I just had a great time touring the Baltics, Poland, Germany with one of my beloved bands OWN YOUR BONES.

This record was just released on Outhere Music. We recorded it two years ago in the lovely Kammermusiksaal at Deutschlandfunk Cologne with Bastian Stein on trumpet, Ronny Graupe on guitar, me on doublass and the Hathor Conosort (three piece viola da gamba ensemble). Also I composed two pieces „Lumen“ and „Jacob“; really enjoy listening back.
Memorias Live at King Georg also on bandcamp now. I love it. The gig was recorded December 20th 2019. Mixed and shortened it a tiny bit.
Marek Johnson news.
We’ve had some songs on hold for a year now and this one made it to the internet first.
Hope you enjoy it!
Sharing this song from my little solo set – voice & guitar – at Stadtgarten Cologne earlier this week.
It’s dedicated to my grandfather.
