‘To Adorn’ means to make something more beautiful, to enhance, and to redecorate it. That is the title of Scott Matthew’s forthcoming record. On Adorned he takes the title literally and rearranges ten of his original tracks. The Australian singer and songwriter has been releasing music for more than a decade now and gained critical acclaim for his lyrics between personal and political and emotive vocals.
The middle of the night is a mystical time. It is somehow not really yesterday, not today anymore, and not tomorrow yet.

To break out of the dullness of press appointments, the singer Lucy Kruger opened up her home to NBHAP editor Liv Toerkell in our second segment of Late Night Talks.
The current age of self isolation is forcing us to be creative, kill some time and maybe also do something we've never done before.

Here is an artist for the 'Super Sad Generation'. Arlo Parks sings out of the hearts and souls of millenials struggling with hopeless love, overwhelming influences, and self-exploration. We met the singer ahead of her very first headlining show in Berlin.

This time it's the turn of Liv Toerkell to ramble about our favourite passion in the world.
Behind every great musician, there are a thousand records that inspired them - in Suzan Köcher's case five thousand. We met the singer and her bandmate Julian Müller in Berlin to find out more about the albums and bands that inspired the making off the latest record 'Suprafon'.
The Berlin-based musicians Jan Wagner and Tobias Preisig took their classical, ambient compositions to another level. In collaboration with the Spatial Media Lab and Zeiss Planetarium, they created a three-dimensional space for music in a very special first edition of SPHEREA.
