The story of The Trouble Notes starts in Manhattan at a Wall Street investment fund and leads to the metropolis Berlin marking the beginning of a new chapter. This chapter stands in the name of travel and lets the group understand that music is a universal language. Their emotional, pan-cultural music, forms personal memories into a colorful melting pot of different traditions. Their songs lack lyrics, because they want the listener to be able to create his or her own vision of what transpires in each song and not restrict it by any language other than music itself.
„Music from everywhere for everyone“.

Lose Your Ties – In the video you see the transformation of a man who boldly uproots his stable life and journeys into the unknown. Faced with all the challenges that lie ahead, he is overtaken with emotions, the excitement but also a fear of the daunting mountains he must climb. There, lost in the wilderness, he finds others like him – wayward travelers prepared for the journey of a lifetime. Together they hear the call, and would bring their hearts and instruments together to tell stories and connect with the cultures of the world. This is our story. We are The Trouble Notes.

Ghost of the Red Sand – Influenced by the never-ending conflict between the world religions, three dancers with different styles (contemporary, classical, urban) representing different cultures, are one after the other brought back to life by the band’s music.

Street music has probably been around as long as there have been streets.

The economics of playing for music next to an open guitar case has an ancient simplicity. There is no middleman, no stockholder, and no investment bank involved in the process; just a pure and direct exchange between artist and audience, and this might be why street music is so important.

Since busking musicians don’t rely on a complicated commercial structure, one would think that they have a lot of freedom to innovate. This turns out to be true; a lot of musical revolutions had their roots on the streets instead of the concert stage – maybe more so before radio and vinyl, but in recent generations also. Folk musicians like Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan used to pass the hat as did many of the great musicians of San Francisco hippie culture like Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead.

Street performance or busking is the act of performing in public places for gratuities. In many countries the rewards are generally in the form of money but other gratuities such as food, drink or gifts may be given. Street performance is practiced all over the world and dates back to antiquity. People engaging in this practice are called street performers or buskers.
