about


Lars Kutschke studied guitar in Dresden and Rotterdam. He started writing and performing songs and playing music for a living in the mid-90s, which included playing every gig from weddings to TV Shows and musical productions. 

In 2005, Lars Kutschke formed a band with Italian Hammond Organ maestro, Alberto Marsico, and drummer Gio Rossi under the name Soundsville. The trio did two albums and a fair share of touring throughout Europe. 

As musical director for the band of Michigan-based Gospel/blues artist Sharrie Williams, Kutschke toured 40+ Countries on 5 continents. He co-wrote and co-produced 3 albums for Sharrie - all of which were nominated for the American Blues Music Awards (BMA).

Connections in the Blues circuit also lead to performing with other artists of the genre, including Bettye Lavette, Tad Robinson, Sax Gordon, Alex Schultz and Kirk Fletcher.

Lars Kutschke’s work in Germany includes playing with local bands, teaching at HMT Leipzig as well as performing with household artists Sido, Die Zöllner, Uschi Brüning, Keimzeit, Veronika Fischer, and Günther Fischer. He currently performs in theatre productions at Deutsches Nationaltheater Weimar, Schauspielhaus Leipzig and Staatsschauspiel Dresden.

His first solo album Right Here Right Now was released in 2013. The next album is in the making and scheduled to be released in 2019.
