Phileas debut EP release concert //
Before starting his new solo project Phileas, singer-songwriter Mathias had been wandering, searching high and low for a more genuine and successful mode of self-expression.
Born in France, he grew up in Germany and worked as a musician in London, Paris and Los Angeles. From the early busking tours in the UK, the exploration of the South-American continent to an inspiring journey across the US on a bicycle, these years were marked by an ongoing restlessness. Unable to establish himself, despite enthusiastic feedback from industry greats such as Rob Fraboni or Matt Linesch, he was in flight and constantly uprooting himself.
But in the last three years Phileas has finally found his place, settling down in Berlin where he works as a live, recording and performing street musician.
This new-found serenity and artistic maturity shines through in his latest productions. In a stripped-down acoustic atmosphere, his unique vocals and multi-layered harmonies serve haunting compositions and profound lyrics.
