Dominic Donner

We couldn’t believe our ears: Dominic Donner (engl. =  Dominic Thunder), is not his stage name, but as real, honest and down-to earth as his songs.

The first instrument that the now 19-year-old from Potsdam put his hands on when he was a little boy was a cello. But it didn’t take long until he found out about his true passion for a six-string instrument: he went through a classical guitar-education for several years. And even though he seems like an old hand in performing his own pieces, songwriting and singing are talents that he discovered only two years ago, playing his very first show at his high school.

It was one early night at Frollein Langner, one of the few hip bars with a big non smoking area in Neukölln, that we met the teenager who had just written the first of his finals a few hours earlier, and will graduate from high school this summer. And after that? „Definitely something with music“, he would answer shyly. We think so too — this session won’t be the last time the world has heard the wonderful melodies of Mr. Donner!
