Svenson – Glory, Death And Heroes An Epic, Cinematic Journey Into Sound
The brilliant sounds penned by Sven Kuehbauch are implemented on his fifth studio album by Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck) and Alexander Veljanov
So far, guitarist, composer, and author, Sven Kühbauch was used to sophisticated compositions for electric and acoustic guitar. With his fifth studio album, the versatile artist has now discovered brilliant cinema sounds for himself. His melodies are catchy virtuoso phrases and have a high recognition value. Titles like "Friendships" or „Sunborn Sinje„ deserve the addition "Beware of catchy tunes!".
"I was inspired by Ramin Djawadi "Game of Thrones“ or Jeremy Soule „Skyrim" and really wanted to transfer this epochal feeling to the guitar when I listened to it," explains Kühbauch. The international work of recent years has also been incorporated into his own compositions: “I have worked on over 15 different projects worldwide, from rock and pop productions to film music to jingles and sound designs. My compositions can now be heard in the U.S., Mexico, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates, Afghanistan, England, and Estonia, among others.”
This international work repeatedly brings him together with well-known names in the music business. On his album "Glory, Death and Heroes" Michael Jackson's ex-guitarist Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck) can be heard with a piece she praised: "It's a killer track, great sound" Batten said about "Rainbow Rocket Ride". Kühbauch himself also loves the track. "These are bebop lines à la Joe Pass, fully distorted with a Peavey 6505 top and a Jim Dunlop Cry Baby," he enthuses. Guitarists should pay attention to such an announcement. Batten herself was so enthusiastic that she produced her own video for the title and is now playing it in her own solo program.
The only acoustic title that stands out is “Hiding from me” with Alexander Veljanov. Kühbauch is playing his Dobro Duolion Model from 1972, a rare resonator guitar that produces a beautiful, warm, golden slide tone in his hands that is strongly reminiscent of Ry Cooder. "Veljanov's deep voice fits perfectly with the instrumentation of the title," says Kühbauch. The song tells the story of Helios, the Greek sun god. The personification of the sun is said to have driven a four-in-hand car across the sky every day. “This metaphor seemed very appropriate to us because Alexander Veljanov has Macedonian roots. He wrote the song himself. And his voice is simply unique.“ The song gets that certain whistle from a very special instrument: “I really wanted to use a mellotron for the piece. Besides the resophonic unplugged sound of the title, this creates a characteristic warm, somewhat melancholic sound, as can also be heard from the Beatles in the piece "Strawberryfields forever“.

Svenson International PR
For more than ten years, the 43-year-old Sven Kühbauch rocked under his stage name Svenson. Last year, the studied and passionate guitarist showed his impressive range on his anniversary album "10th anniversary" and trumped with out-of-print titles such as "Ride away", in which the otherwise convinced instrumental artist even sings. An awarded title is "T for Theia" ("Best Instrumental Blues Song" / The Academy Music Award). The international press paid tribute to the album and guitarist by writing: "Svenson plays rhythm and lead guitar at once much like Charlie Hunter does (...) a solitary acoustic guitar well done with beautiful chords and clean articulation." (Blues Report), "Svenson uses his expertise as a guitarist to speak to his audience. (Warlock Asylum International News) "Svenson's breadth of talent and style is evident as his brand of restrained wizardry and his ability to put the matter to the fore." “…groove above all else with creativity and impeccable precision purveys the album." (Tunedloud) So much skill does not come by chance: The musician Svenson from Marburg studied at the jazz and rock school in Freiburg, which he left as the best guitarist of his class. Since 1994, he has given individual and group lessons and has gained his rich experience in master classes, lessons and workshops from Greg Howe, Scott Henderson, Pat Metheny, Joe Dioro, Michael Sagmeister, David Friesen, Uwe Kropinski, John Stowell, Matt Smith, Georg Gruntz and Ernie Watts. He has performed worldwide with his solo show and as a band guitarist, including shows at the Montreux Jazz Festival, and has worked with such greats as Jerry Donahue, Jennifer Batten, Lulo Reinhardt and star percussionist Rhani Krija (Sting). With the latter who is considered a "world-class percussionist" (drums & percussion), he recorded the original composition "Agua de mundo" (2016, format: Download), which Big Fuss Records chose as an opener for the environmental compilation "Our Green Earth". His solo albums are highly praised in professional circles, not only the web radio station "Blues Road" was thrilled: "More than worth listening to. A guitarist who puts his feelings into music and miraculously serves his guitar. "
But not only on the guitar Kuehbauch shows empathy and passion. Through his enthusiasm for the wild west and as an avowed Karl May fan, Kühbauch was delighted to compose and record the chapter music for six Karl May audiobooks (Karl May Verlag, Bamberg). At the request of the publisher, Kuehbauch presented his Karl May sound world to the illustrious audience of the 100th anniversary of the publishing house, where Winnetou's sister Nscho Tschi (Marie Versini) was also a guest. Kuehbauch's compositions are as catchy as credible and can be heard in various television productions (including Sat1). In workshops (published in the magazine "Gitarre & Bass" among others) and interactive eBooks, Sven Kuehbauch teaches his knowledge. His "Interactive Guitar workshop" series is considered groundbreaking and has established itself as the standard work of modern interactive guitar textbooks. "Interactive Country Guitar" is available in four languages. Svenson has performed at all major music trade shows around the world as an endorser for Music Man, Jim Dunlop, Farida guitar, Peavey, Rodenberg amplifications and Ernie Ball Strings.
