Marcus Sukiennik


"It's nice to be able to surprise yourself while you're playing...."

Marcus Sukiennik sees himself as a wanderer between sound worlds. As a pianist, composer and arranger, he explores centuries of musical history with his work - and examines the developments of current listening habits.

Living in Cologne since 1993, the artist uses components of classical music and jazz, motifs of traditional folk songs as well as pop music elements.

Sukiennik writes arrangements of classical melodies, composing mainly for piano solo, occasionally for jazz bands. As a bar pianist, he has also been playing contemporary background music for more than 25 years in a wide variety of venues, including as artistic director in the piano bar of the Excelsior Hotel Ernst in Cologne and at the Musical Dome as the entrée to the show Moulin Rouge.


Born in the Rhineland, Sukiennik comes from a music-loving family. He takes up the piano at the age of 8, later founds a school band together with his brother and develops more and more his own style, influenced by jazz music. At that time, however, the young amateur musician is also preoccupied with a second passion: playing football. After some deliberation, he makes a choice - and decides in favour of music.

From 1987 Marcus Sukiennik studies jazz piano and classical piano in Hilversum, the Netherlands, with Karel Boehlee, Henk Elkerbout and Rob Madna. He completes further studies in composition/arrangement under the supervision of film composer and conductor Jurre Haanstra at the Conservatorium in Amsterdam between 1997-2011, as well as with jazz pianist and WDR big band leader Bill Dobbins at the Hochschule für Musik in Cologne.


Sukiennik's artistic development is shaped by his encounter with the Cologne pianist and composer Eckart Wilkens in the early nineties. Their exchange leads him to an in-depth study of classical piano literature and variation works. It also awakens his interest in tracing the unifying element of music-making and its essential core beyond stylistics and forms of expression. As a pianist, Sukiennik has mastered a wide range of styles - what his pieces have in common though is simplicity, clarity and feeling.

To date, his published work includes 7 albums, several singles and 4 music books released on Sukiennik's own label Line 21. Among them, the most significant works are the big band project A Night In Tunisia Suite (2000), the piano solo album Atme Seele, heile - Breathe soul, heal - (2016) and the first live performance in front of an audience at LOFT Cologne in 2017 Beste Tage (Best days)..

For his compositions and arrangements, Sukiennik has been repeatedly honoured with the VDM Award and occupied top spots on the charts99 with his releases.

Marcus Sukiennik lectured combo and big band at the University of Duisburg, taught music history at the VHS Cologne and has been running his own piano school since 1993.

2022 to date: Pianist at the Musical Dome, greeting before the show Moulin Rouge

They been embracing life here on planet earth a pretty long time, and music has always been with them over the years.

This is their first album, taken from the core of their hearts.

So who are they?

Misha Fair

Misha Fair, a prolific singer songwriter, has been making a bold impression with her classic country vocals and expressive lyrics. Those who have been fortunate enough to see her dynamic performances are in high expectation of her upcoming solo releases.

A product of a musical family, the singer-songwriter’s family has had major label success from RCA to Atlantic Records. As a result, she spent most of her early childhood development in the same studios as Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the SOS Band, Isaac Hayes, and many other music legends.

With a rich musical legacy written into her DNA, her childhood was shaped by this reality in remarkable yet complicated ways. While most of her kindergarten classmates were toting My Buddies to Show-n-Tell, her father would join her, off tour, with members of the S.O.S. Band, fully costumed. Enthralled in the family business, she quickly earned a reputation as the little girl with the big voice, wowing audiences with renditions of LeAnne Rimes’ ‘Blue’ and other tunes by country artists such as Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton, as well as rock singer-songwriters Pat Benatar, and Joan Jett.

She was trained from a young age as a classical vocalist, but found her passion in jazz, hip hop, and the gritty alternative sound of the mid ‘90s. She performed in countless marquee, and children’s choirs in her hometown. Unbeknownst to her, there was a wave of hip-hop and RnB sweeping Atlanta, and the young Misha Fair found her tribe along the confluence of the shared and varied traditions that make up the musical ethos of the United States. Misha Fair attended college on a vocal performance scholarship. Minoring in linguistic studies, she may be one of the few country artists able to sing and write in multiple romance languages.

In 2008, she began an internship at Wondaland Arts Society after a chance meeting with Janelle Monae. Her professional career was kickstarted after she began assisting creatively with many of her early projects.

She has collaborated with artists, songwriters, and producers including the likes of Blanco Brown, Breland, Demun Jones, and Yelawolf.

As she embarks on a solo musical career she looks to join her country music contemporaries as a prolific singer-songwriter. All the while, she remains in high demand as a vocal trainer and artist developer. “I’m a classically trained, Southern girl, who fell in love with everything great about this country. My songs have been deep-fried in folk, gospel and bluegrass and are best served with a side of rhythm and blues, and rock and roll,” Misha Fair comments on her music.

The band has only performed in Latvia so far. Their album “Miljards vasaru” received 5 nominations for Latvian Music Awards, including Best Pop Album, Best Album Design and Best Concert Video.
