Franz Hackl merges "Tyrolean Folktunes" the musical dialect he grew up with, with the music and sounds of New York, the town he calls home for almost 20 years. Music has as many dialects as the human language. To open up and further develop your own musical dialect elevates this music and presents it on an international level. It's both very personal and open to influences from all over the world. Each band member has all the artistic freedom they need to contribute equally to the same vision.
