Wolfgang Valbrun is a singer-songwriter born and raised in New York, now resident in Paris, France where he moved as a teenager and which he now calls home.
As lead singer of avant-garde UK soul and jazz band ephemerals, he toured the world and attracted a fervent following as well as hundreds of millions of streams.
Alongside ephemerals he was also a performer and co-writer for cutting edge French funk & soul artist GUTS on his Stop The Violence album and a guest performer for Dutch electronic dons Kraak & Smaak.
2020 saw a musical reset for Wolfgang (as for many musicians) and he made a decision to write and record under his own name. ‘Cyclone’ is the first taste of the fruits of his labour and is the first part of a three track EP that will be released on Jalapeno Records.
Wolfgang tells us…
"Cyclone is song that describes the instability of emotions that you find yourself in living with a partner. But it can also be applied to the relationships that we have with those around us in a general sense. The cyclone being a metaphor for the truly difficult moments where we are unable to grasp the reasons or reactions of someone we love. It came to me at a time when I was having a hard time with my partner. This is also why there are also good times described in this song, moments that are not to be neglected even when they are tempered with the bad times."
