Interview with the musician of the week: Nick Schnebelen

1. Nick, what does Jazz means to you?
Growing up as a young musician in Kansas City I immediately turned to Jazz and Blues. I got to experience both styles of music frequently through my teens.  I played Blues with my Late Father, an exceptional Blues Guitarist. Through him, I met many of Jazz and Blues musicians who I performed with 4-5 nights a week through high school.

2.You're in the music business for quite a while. During this time - what has changed for you personally?   
I have been a musician for so long it has been who I am so I can't say that it has changed me since it where I've been the whole time haha.  My biggest change would be now having my own band apart from my sibling band "Trampled Under Foot". It has been a challenge I've risen up to and I am having a blast!  I can say that being a professional musician is not for everyone and there are a lot of gains and losses for you to choose on this life path…

3. How many weeks a year are you on tour – and away from home?
We tour about 150 to 200 dates er year, but this next year with my record "Crazy All By Myself" due out March 1st, 2019 we will be in full swing up to 260 dates per year!  The most I've ever done was 300 dates in one year

4. What is your relationship to Switzerland in general - and to Berne in particular?
I love Switzerland!  I have performed in Basil, Zurich, Sierre so far.  I love the food and culture, and the wine is great! I have really loved visiting and playing for you all over the years and I look forward to many more.
