Joscho Stephan shapes modern gypsy swing with his playing like no other: With
his authentic tone, his harmonic finesse and his sense of rhythm, but above all
with his breathtaking solo technique, Stephan has earned himself an outstanding
reputation on the international guitar scene. Like no other, he knows how to
stand out from the multitude of current Gypsy Swing adaptations by combining
Gypsy Swing with Latin, Classical and Rock, in addition to numerous
interpretations of the well-known classics of the genre. This is where Stephan’s
strength as a creative visionary shines through. The result is a delight for concert
audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Joschos YouTube version of “Hey Joe”
has now reached 3 million views. His debut album ‘Swinging Strings’ was voted
CD of the month in 1999 by Guitar Player magazine. In 2004, Acoustic Guitar
Magazine celebrated Joscho Stephan as the future of gypsy jazz guitar. For the
CD “Guitar Heroes” in 2015, Joscho Stephan invited guitar greats like Bireli
Lagrène, Stochelo Rosenberg and Tommy Emmanuel. The 2018 production
“Paris – Berlin” was released as a limited “Direct to Disc” vinyl, recorded at the
legendary Hansa Studios (where David Bowie’s “Heroes” was recorded, among
others). In total, 4 of Joscho’s albums have been nominated for the German
Record Critics’ Award. In the USA, too, he has thrilled audiences with concerts in
Nashville, Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit and at the legendary Jazz Festival. San
Francisco, Detroit, the legendary jazz club Birdland and the Lincoln Center in New
York. On the Australian continent, Joscho Stephan has toured with Tommy
Emmanuel. His current trio includes Sven Jungbeck (rhythm guitar) and Volker
Kamp (double bass). The trio has been on the road since 2018 and has since
played numerous tours and concerts. (e.g. in Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain,
