Kaiser Chiefs I Jake Isaac & TBA
Place informationZermatt Unplugged
As a wave of new rock music surges over the British Isles in the mid-2000s, Emperor Chiefs from Leeds emerged with a plan that is nothing less than taking over world domination as indie band. Oh My God, I Predict a Riot, Everyday’s I Love You Less and Less: The 2005 debut album, Employment, lines up hit after hit. With the song Ruby, the band makes it to the international stage once and for all. Since then Kaiser Chiefs have boldly made tracks from album to album – the seventh, Duck, has just been released. They do nothing other than be themselves: one of the best guitar bands of the last twenty years with an unmistakable musical DNA.
Jake Isaac is currently regarded as one of the most interesting British singer-songwriters in soul and pop. The artist from the south of London became known to millions of viewers as Elton John’s supporting act. Jake Isaac has won over the love of his fans – more than 30 million streams speak for themselves – with songs such as Long Road, You and I Always and Waiting Here, and not least by his approachable way to making music. He is not the guy who wants to impress others: Jake Isaac connects with his audience.
