Reiner Kirsten

The story:
As a member of the Black Forest family Jäkle, Reiner was already standing on the boards that mean the world as a drummer at the age of 6. This was fol­lowed by training on the accordion and later in singing. Besides his job as a tele­com­mu­ni­ca­tions tech­nician, Reiner Kirsten worked con­stantly on his musical career. Winning the Swiss preli­minary round for the Grand Prix of Folk Music in 1996 meant at the same time the decision to devote himself fully to his career as a singer.

The breakth­rough:
Already the album “Schmet­terling im Regen” exceeded the boldest expec­ta­tions. Victory in the qua­li­fying round for the Grand Prix of Folk Music, pla­ce­ments in the Schla­ger­parade der Volks­musik and the Volks­tüm­lichen Hit­pa­raden on ZDF and ORF, as well as a strong media pre­sence made 1996 a mile­stone in Reiner Kirsten’s solo career.

The big suc­cesses (excerpts):
