ABOUT THE ARTIST
German native Philip Weberndörfer is a guitarist and composer, who has been thriving in the pursuit of music since his early childhood in the countryside of Bavaria.
He has been portrayed as a resourceful visionary with a highly expressive yet sensitive and intricate voice on the instrument. Inspired by European Classical as well as Gypsy Music and with a profound love for the American Songbook, his compositions resemble a deep exploration of colorful soundscapes without stylistic boundaries. Entertaining a fable for fragile harmonic structures, the sound of his ensemble is also characterized by the give and take between chordal complexity and the beautiful simplicity of soulful melodies.
Since his arrival to NYC in 2016, Philip has steadily been contributing to the Jazz scene as a bandleader and sideman. He has performed at esteemed music venues all across the city, including Blue Note, Cornelia Street Cafe, Club Bonafide, Rockwood Music Hall, Room 623, Chelsea Table & Stage, The Atlantic, City Vineyard's “Voices on the Hudson” concert series, and more
He also the honor of representing Germany at the “European Sound Series” of the “Blue Note Jazz Festival” in collaboration with the Consulate General of Germany.
