Howdy, folks and folkettes!
I go by the name of S.C. Kuschnerus - people tend to call me Kusch, Kuschnator or just $%!!!
I am a freelancing drummer, songwriter, lead & backing vocalist, topliner and trilingual wordsmith as well as co-founding member of German-Korean rock act Krypteria.
I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to perform on a ton of music-related productions over the course of my career and so far my vocal and percussive works appear on over 10 million sold units, which still amazes to this day.
Music has taken me to places such as Latin America and the United States all the way to East Asia and I've performed at some of the biggest festivals in the world like the Wacken Open Air, Graspop Metal Meeting, The Metal Camp and the M'era Luna only to name a few.
Besides my regular activities as drummer, vocalist, songwriter, lyricist and co-arranger for Krypteria I appeared as a singer/actor in numerous leading roles in high-profile musical productions such as Peter Maffay's "Tabaluga & Lilli" and "Falco meets Amadeus", working stages in Germany and Austria - what an experience!
After hundreds and hundreds of shows I still love performing live best - being on the road and rockin' out for/with fans and friends to me is the epitome of awesome!
However, I also keep busy doing English/German adaptations for the music, comic book and movie industry. Plus, I work as a vocal and performance coach, with some of my clients receiving platinum and gold records as well as a total of three ECHO-awards -
and barring any interference with Krypteria's touring schedule I'm always up for new challenges...
So how would I characterize my style of drumming?
Well, to say it in the words of the immortal Jules Winnfield: "I'm a mushroom cloud layin' muthaf***er, muthaf***er ! I'm like the Guns of the Navarone !!!" ;)
Take care, everybody, hope to see you on the road asap!
