I am Oliver Papke I have always had a great interest in music. We had a piano in the parents' house. Often I watched my mother and was very enthusiastic about what I heard. It did not take long for me to sit down at the age of 11 and start playing the piano. The first song I played was by Beethoven "Für Elise". The desire became ever greater to do more after many friends and close acquaintances encouraged me to also present something online. Since I like music from the 80's, I started to cover songs from different well-known musicians and bands. It was really fun. It was also uploaded to Facebook and received by many with great enthusiasm. More and more the path of music developed and my wife was sitting at the piano enjoying it when I play and realizing that I'm starting to deviate from cover songs. After a long musical break I started to play my own piano in 2014. That's how I published it, and that, too, was well received by the listeners. I've met a lot of friends on the Internet until today and have them fully behind me. I got to know many good musicians. They met musicians at our home and so it went on. Then it happened that I should record it somehow and so I bought myself a stage piano, the KAWAI MP7. This continued the musical journey. I was always looking for new ways to compose more songs than piano melody. I then uploaded them to Youtube and Soundcloud. I got to know more and more musicians with whom I also worked together, which has brought me a lot of experience. I am very grateful for that. Gradually I heard orchestra in my ears composing and felt the desire to listen to orchestra and add to my piano playing. I bought a music program and now had the opportunity to realize this as well. After many projects with great musicians, I met Colin Powell and we started working together. It started with a collaboration and it worked out so well that we had finished our first own album "Moments In Time", and then it went with 2 new singles which you can download from all major download portals at Bandcamp and for streaming on Spotify - closing your eyes and dreaming / background / new age / ballad / relaxing / classic / flute music - with a lot of passion and passion a heartfelt wish has come true and I have a lot of work to do. The music goes on and on Composing and creating new songs That's a lot of fun I'm self-taught and all the songs I compose I get from beautiful moments of my deepest heart, my heart the nature of my beloved wife, me in all with the music I concentrate musically in my spare time, play a lot on the piano and often come up with new ideas which I then arrange to produce songs and then a m Kawai Mp7 record.
