Matthias Baumgardt, born in 1963 Frankfurt-Germany as the seventh and youngest child. There were a lot of records from the 60s by my brothers and sisters and also Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald from my mother in the house. So I started playing guitar when I was nine years old and had my first gig when I was 12. I quit school when I was 16 and went on tour with a Band called “Strassenjungs”. This is what I´m still doing, playing music for my living and having fun.
