Unknown Neighbour - folk / indie music artist from Berlin, Germany


Although playing the piano since his early childhood, it took some time for the German singer-songwriter Sascha Zemke alias Unknown Neighbour to find the right framework for his music. Music had always been an important companion for him, an intimate place of refuge in both, rough and euphoric times. Through writing songs, the folk artist and multi-instrumentalist has found a language to express his intuition and unite his creative abilities. Influences such as Bear's Den, Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers or Alexi Murdoch, deepened his passion for folk music and encouraged him to auto-didactically learn to play the guitar and banjo. Soon his natural urge to create songs turned into a vocation.

His lyrics are characterized by a radical honesty which liberates from self-delusion and superficiality. Soulful, catchy melodies combined with Sascha’s raspy voice invite for a rollercoaster ride of emotions, disclosing the beauty and pain that lie in every experience we make.
