TJ and The Tux caught up with the Austrian Electroacoustic Andrew Bird and #artistoftheweek on “Steve Jobs and Wall St. Mobs” in October 2011, Effi, to chat about life without wienerschnitzel, electronic music production and the collapse of the European Union. He plays more instruments than we can name. More importantly he can communicate and translate sounds from Graz without the use of grass. Look for genre jumping, language loving Effi all over Europe sounding like Lilly Allen with The Strokes’ hair and Mozart’s shoes. Eat your heart out Julian Casablancas.
Check out Effi’s music here.
EFFI is a singer/songwriter from GRAZ using electronic and acoustic instruments.
Live he is playing with his fabulous band: Roland Hanslmeier (Drums) and Martin List (Bass)
