Man Tau is a singer-songwriter from Germany.
His first steps into music involved a short-lived two-man band he formed in school with a classmate. After the band’s break up, he stopped writing songs for a while, believing he wouldn’t be good enough to be a musician.
A couple of years later, after a personal and mind-altering experience, he started to write songs again. With this newfound inspiration he decided to move to a bigger city (Munich) to find other people who had the same dream.
There he formed the band Bogus Company. The band played a few gigs, but unfortunately also broke up after some time. After this Man Tau decided to go the solo route.
Unsatisfied with his first solo recordings, which remain unreleased, he gave it a second try, and in 2019 "Up and Down" was released on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, and other streaming platforms.
Feeling uninspired by the Munich music scene, Man Tau decided to move to Berlin at the end of 2019. There he found band members willing to perform his solo work on stage.
Musically his sound very much derives from the 60s and 70s eras, but modern influences also can’t be denied. On his recordings he plays all instruments himself.
