Conrad Korsch gave a convincing display of his abilities as singer-songwriter at the venue „Weinland Waterfront“ in Hamburg, Germany. On July 8, 2010, the likeable multi-instrumentalist enchanted his audience with the sensitive and poetical songs of his debut album “Live Love Leave”.
Currently, the well esteemed bassist Conrad Korsch is on tour with Rod Stewart and hence doesn’t have time for own concerts. Nevertheless he managed to set up several gigs during a tour break, in order to present his singer-songwriter debut album “Live Love Leave” to the German audience.
One of these occasions took place on July 8, 2010, in the Hamburg based bar “Weinland Waterfront”, which is not only known for providing excellent wine but also very good acoustic concerts in an intimate ambience. At 9 pm the likeable American picked up his acoustic guitar instead of the usual bass guitar in order to sing and play for some 60 minutes.
Right away from the first measure Conrad Korsch impressively demonstrated that also as a singer-songwriter he has got everything what it takes for international success. In doing so he was supported by Everett Bradley, who appeared to be equally gifted and likeable and who wove an atmospheric percussive texture around the poetry of the vividly performed songs.
Particularly outstanding with regard to intensity and emotionality were the songs “Haunted House”, “I’m Leaving” and “Firefly” – the latter by the way being a duet with Rosanne Cash on Conrad’s album “Live Love Leave”.
Put in a nutshell it was a beautiful concert evening with moving and mature songs. And from now on I got the convincing Conrad Korsch on my music radar and his strong debut album regularly in my CD player.
