About Cosmic Circus

Cosmic Circus writes fantastic, imaginative, inspiring, unusual, melodic and catchy songs in various styles, from cosmic country and vintage pop to spiritual disco. Guitar, violin and vocal harmonies combine beautifully in their acoustic Duo or band.
Before Tobias played as guitarist for Ute’s band Passion Flower. Now their paths crossed again, when Tobias asked her to join him as a singer and violinist in his own project. They have started to write songs together after playing together for quite some time.

What others say … about Tobias’ EP “Rise and Fall”

‘Die track laat Tobias Bader klinken alsof Neil Young de setting van Into The Wild op is komen lopen en het van Eddie Vedder over heeft genomen. Het stemgeluid doet ook nog een beetje denken aan de jonge Bob Dylan, iets wat ook in opener ‘Fly’ naar voren komt. ‘ (White Room Reviews)

‘Zijn muziek ademt de jaren zestig en zeventig… Direct vanaf de ijzersterke uptempo opener Fly houdt Bader de luisteraar bij de les…. Het uitstekende repertoire op Rise and Fall zweeft ergens tussen folk, vintage pop en roots.’  (It’s a Hell of a Heaven)

‘Met deze zes songs klasseert hij zichzelf meteen tussen de grote jongens … ‘Rise and Fall’, dat met Ute apfelstedt’s viool arrangementen een knap luisterspel vormt … Folk, pop en/of rootsmuziek… Tobias Bader heeft het blijkbaar allemaal in de vingers!’ (CD Review Blog)


What others say … about Ute’s CD “Shine in your Own Light”

‘You will be surprised by the astonishing beauty of the best tracks, Ute’s multi-faceted Vocals (who besides singing also plays violin, keyboards, programs and arranges) and the Inventive instrumentation. Isn’t that beautiful? The CD certainly is.’ (OOR Magazine – Holland’s biggest Music Mag)

‘Passion Flower is Ute’s beautiful new way of expressing her unique style. Producer Osadzinski provides her dreamy melancholic lyrics with transparent instrumentations, leaving space for her sensual voice. Triphop and drum În bass are the cornerstones of Passion Flower’s sound. Because of Ute’s slight german accent and the romantic desire in her lyrics, “Shine in your Own Light” conjures up an atmosphere reminiscent of Marlene Dietrich and Berlin in the twenties and thirties.’ (Volkskrant – National newspaper)

Each track has the potential to become a personal favourite-it’s a question of timing and mood. “Shine in your Own Light” is a fascinating tribute to life and love.’ (Basic Groove – music mag)
