Since the release of his second album 'Hurra! Hurra! So nicht.' from 2010, the Berlin singer and guitarist Gisbert zu Knyphausen belongs to the first guard of German-language songwriters. It is said that his lyrics are mostly melancholic. But there is always a glimmer of hope, a belief in the good and a lot of love and affection for the often struggling characters in his stories. PIAS Recordings has released three of his own studio albums so far. 'Hurra! Hurra! So nicht.' entered the German album charts at number 12 in 2010 and also earned a nomination for the 1Live Krone as best alternative artist. In addition, Gisbert zu Knyphausen is always enthusiastic about collaborative projects such as Kid Kopphausen with the now deceased Nils Koppruch or Husten with Moses Schneider and Der dünne Mann.
