A taste of Tonetic at Music Circle
Who is this man behind Tonetic? Steffen List is the name by which his friends know him. At the age of seven he has already learned to master the Cello.
As a teenager he discarded the Cello in favour of the robust bass guitar. In 1996 he gave his debut as the bass of the band ‘Needles’ where the band shared an evening with Desert Velvet and Eternal Rain. Through the years he became fond of the guitar which allows him to compose and to perform his songs solo or with the band.
“I draw from very deep and personal, sometimes evocative moods and emotions when I write and compose. My music is not meant to induce sadness, I find peace and solace through musical expression and hope that my music has a comparable effect on others” is what the artist said when asked how he describes the process of creating and composing music.
His music has touched many hearts and some listeners have even said that if they could one day walk in the clouds, the would take the walk with Tonetic’s music. One fan has even said that before listening to the artist she spent years without a heartbeat until she heard her heart in his music which has become the texture of her soul.
Zimbabwean artist Onai Mutizwa will be the opening act on the evening. For a taste of the tall blonde musician with a clear and sometimes haunting voice be sure to find yourself at Nice Restaurant court yard next weekend. Doors open at 19h30. Tickets are N$55.
