“I´m not really an early bird and I love to sleep in,” says singer/songwriter Chris Buseck. “But there´s a beautiful melancholy to pouring your heart out in the early morning hours when you’ve just got up.”
THE GOOD MORNING DIARY is Buseck’s solo project – and never before have we been allowed to get so close to this exceptional songwriter. His upcoming first 5 ” EP is an acoustic folk-pop gem that fans of Damien Rice, Teitur or Bright Eyes should definitely not miss out on. Anyone who has a faible for beautiful songs will love the fragile and moving track “The Day I turned into a Ghost,” the video of which has been well received and screened at short film festivals across Europe.
But Buseck’s music also expresses the light-hearted verve of a bright and sunny morning. Songs like “Automatic Feelings” will accompany you throughout the day and leave you wanting more…
“I often write my songs in bed. I just grab my guitar and start singing. That´s the atmosphere I want to capture in a concert.” So next to supporting artists such as Amy MacDonald, Brooke Fraser and the German band JULI, Chris also likes to perform with a small and intimate set. “Sometimes its even just me and a cello. Fragile, up close, undisguised.”
A born songwriter, Chris Buseck has penned many a melody for other artists. His talent to write for others almost made him give up his own solo career. But in 2008, as a student of the legendary “Popkurs” at Hamburg’s music university, he rediscovered his qualities as a singer – as did others. His performance as a solo artist won him a scholarship from the Bertram Pohl Foundation, which opened new doors for him as a performer.
After touring a lot in 2010, Chris is now presenting his first EP, “THE GOOD MORNING DIARY,” produced and mixed by himself. The tracks were recorded with engineer Ralf Christian Mayer and at Buseck’s own studio, where he gathered his closest musician friends to support him. “I wanted to create a cosy and inspiring mood,” says the man who likes to write his songs in his pyjamas, ”like a slow day that has only just started…”
