Jazz at JAKI: Philipp Schiepek Trio

Guitarist Philipp Schiepek has a vision: he wants to develop a new, individual sound language with his compositions and his playing. The musician and composer, who lives in Dinkelsbühl, is successfully pursuing this goal. In recent years, the young artist has focused his work on performing his own compositions with his jazz projects and interpreting music for solo guitar.

He has performed with his ensembles at the Berlin Jazz Festival, the Leipzig Jazz Days, the Berlin Philharmonie, the Prinzregententheater in Munich, the Leverkusen Jazz Days and the Europe Sound Festival in Ankara, among others. Philipp Schiepek's concerts are broadcast on Deutschlandfunk, Bayerischer Rundfunk, RBB, WDR and NDR. A 60-minute live concert, which was recorded as part of the Jazzfest Berlin, was recently streamed on ARTE CONCERT. Schiepek's debut album as bandleader and composer Golem Dance with New York star saxophonist Seamus Blake was released in February 2019 on ENJA-Records. In the same year, he was awarded the Scholarship for Music of the City of Munich and received the "BMW Welt Young Artist Jazz Award" in 2020. Most recently, Schiepek won first prize at the Burghausen International Jazz Week competition with the Nils Kugelmann Trio.

In 2021, Schiepek and pianist Walter Lang released the duo album Cathedral on ACT Music. Schiepek's composition "BLAUE BÄUME" for two electric guitars was premiered in May 2022 together with Berlin guitarist Ronny Graupe. Philipp Schiepek was a guest solo artist at the Köthen Bach Festival 2022 with the program "Saitenglück - Bach und von Bach inspiriert".
