    Anna Depenbusch is a singer and singer-songwriter from Hamburg. She has been composing and producing her own songs since 2001 and has released five albums to date. Awarded the Fred-Jay Preis for lyrics and the Deutscher Chansonpreis (German chanson prize), she blends various music genres such as jazz, chanson, country, blues and pop.
    She tours Germany with her band and as a solo artist, accompanying herself on the piano, guitar and ukulele. Her lyrics take a tragicomic look at the banalities of life and love. Anna Depenbusch forms stories from truths, imagination and irony, slipping into the role of people in love, people who are hurting, dreamers and observers. Influenced by her surroundings, some of her songs combine maritime images with witty poetry. Vocally, Anna Depenbusch sees herself as part of the narrative tradition of songwriters and chansonniers. A, the place where it all began...

    Werner Koczwara (pronounced Kotsh-vara) was born in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany, in 1957. He wrote his first satirical pieces for radio and television while he was a student of American Studies in Munich and Berlin. In the years that followed Koczwara, worked as a writer for many popular TV shows including Verstehen Sie Spass, the Harald Schmidt-Show and Wetten dass. He became the “inventor of legal cabaret” (Spiegel-Online) with his stage show about lawyers, Am achten Tag schuf Gott den Rechtsanwalt. The show has now been staged over 1,000 times, making it one of the most-performed German cabaret shows. It is currently being performed by artists including Dieter Hallervorden. The press described it as “one of the best of the past decade” (Bonner Generalanzeiger) and a successful blend of high artistic standards and great entertainment. A book inspired by the show spent several months in the bestseller charts. Koczwara points out the unintentionally humorous aspects of Germany’s legal system, which makes him very popular with audiences. He has won the Salzburger Stier, a satire award, and the Silver Rose of Monaco for his comedy creations. He lives in Schwäbisch Gmünd with his wife and two children.
