Balzer and Müller are friends of risk moderation and therefore often invite people who are far removed from their own characteristics and abilities: very good-looking men, for example, or guests who want to talk about music. For pop critics, the latter is a bit like someone from the Lüneburg Heath having to tell something about high alpine regions or, conversely, a mountain person describing the biorhythm of Heidschnucken.
Now two musicians are coming to the Popsalon, both of whom have attracted the attention of many people with, of all things, musically very special albums. After successful years with the Me And My Drummer project, Charlotte Brandi has already released two solo albums. The current one in German: To the Nightmare impressed the remaining pop critics across the board, even though it is an album full of harmony changes and other technical tricks.
The second guest is non-Seattle, Katharina Kollmann is on the passport. She leads a choir in Berlin's Mühlenbergviertel, with which she also performs at pop festivals, at the front with a guitar and band. Her third German-language album as Non-Seattle will be released in April, and she sings in English as Lake Felix.
Anyone who has seen both Brandi and Kollmann on stage knows: music is their focus. And the texts tend to be very critical of men.
