He previously played in the bands of Pink Oculus and Anne-Fay, among others, now Gino-Cochise emerges as a contrarian and elusive solo artist. “I don’t make music for a career”, he sang at Eurosonic Noorderslag and MOMO Create & Perform in 2021. It should be clear: the Amsterdam multi-instrumentalist doesn’t care about money, fame and the music business.
In fact, he believes that music is only there for meditation and as medicine. His very first single ‘Fo Woa’ is therefore a virtuoso plea against materialism and for more spirituality and consciousness. Those same themes will also be heard on his debut album LBM III. He said to 3voor12: “These are ten songs that I worked on for about three years. It’s actually the third album, but I’m going to release it from the back like Star Wars.”
“The syncopated drums, those silly, staccato vocals, that extremely strange rap voice… no, there is no point in comparing the Amsterdam Gino-Cochise.” – 3voor12
