"Rainbow Rocket Ride" is a true ride to the stars. "These are bebop lines á la Joe Pass, fully distorted with a Peavey 6505 head and a Jim Dunlop Cry Baby," says Kuehbauch. Guitarists are likely to listen to such an announcement. But also music lovers without instrument skills get their money's worth: Memorable triads and brilliant tapping thunderstorms by Svenson and tapping goddess Jennifer Batten are ear catchy. "It was a pleasure to work with Jennifer. She is very professional and with her own style and ideas she brought this production to a whole new level" says Kuehbauch happily.

For ten years, the 41-year-old 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.

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. "
