"Melodic ease, harmonic subtlety and an intriguingly dispersed approach to compositional structure make up the winning trinity of young German guitarist and composer Philipp Schiepek." All about Jazz
“An insightful and versatile guitarist” (All About Jazz), “he has found a sound that is his own – and is always imbued with both beauty and excitement” (Süddeutsche Zeitung). Philipp Schiepek has started to receive the media attention he deserves. Born in Dinkelsbühl in Southern Germany in 1994, Schiepek first played piano and accordion before taking up the guitar at the age of 12. He has that most important attribute of a musician, his own individual voice. The word about quite how good he is started to get around fast: he had only just completed his studies at the conservatoires in Würzburg and Munich when he played with bands such as Mulo Francel’s, and also alongside internationally known artists like Richie Beirach and Klaus Doldinger. In early 2020, he won the BMW Welt Young Artist Jazz Award. With “Cathedral” he now makes his debut on ACT.
