„David Helm is known to many in European jazz circles as an adventurously creative bass player and composer. In his new project ‘Marek Johnson’ however, he inhabits several new roles; songwriter, guitarist, frontman. Accompanying him are his long-time collaborators Dominik Mahnig (Drums) and Thomas Sauerborn (Bass). Together they have developed a kind of acerbic yet melancholic sound within the Indie-Pop idiom, without trying to hide other influences from their musical backgrounds.
Helm wears his heart on his sleeve, clearly conveying his thoughts about the decline of society, as well as offering an intimate portrait of his own life.“
