Who is Tobi Lessnow ?

>>>> Singer, Drummer etc <<<<

I started out as a singer and a drummer and over the course of time picked up other instruments like the guitar and the piano.
I suppose I could call myself fairly open minded when it comes to music. So since the early days I've been criss-crossing the genres from jazz to rock, from electronic to hardcore, from reggae to new music. Besides playing in numerous bands, I studied music at university, did a few stints at the theater/opera and had a couple of studio gigs here and there.
I did some work on a film score and was a member of The Dorf, an eclectic big band firing on all stylistic cylinders.
Then there is Baldower, a project that explores the vast and beautiful landscapes of electonica. I've been playing club gigs and conferences, where I'm sampling the speakers and incorporate the snippets into my tracks.
To get a taste of my drumming in it's purest form, visit me here. If you like what you're hearing and are interested in a collaboration you are more than welcome to drop me a line.
I almost forgot: apart from being a musician I'm also a passionate graphic designer. I find that design is the perfect supplement to my music. Check out my portfolio.

The essence of a song

I find it fascinating to approach a song from different angles. Every interpretation brings you closer to the essence and you really get to know the song's character. A full blown arrangement or a version stripped down to the essentials - I love them all.
