Guitar & Songwriting
Pia Fochmann is a young musician from Germany. She began playing music in public as an instrumental solo artist accompanying herself with a loop station. In the early years she got involved in the reading scene in Dessau. She started out elaborating poetry readings in libraries, musically empathizing on the literature portrayed. Beside enjoying the bliss of accompanying readings, she also joined different bandprojects, mostly playing in the genre of blues and psychedelic rock.
Meanwhile she is also playing with Jumping Jack, a partycoverband from Leipzig, expressing her wild side with rockin’ guitar riffs and solos since 2018. In 2020 she met the great singer Alice Chinaglia and founded the duo Gypsy Wings. Gypsy Wings as a versatile cultural music project forms the perfect balance between Pias musical roots of bluesrock, that she loves to act out in projects such as Jumping Jack and her empathetic, sensitive musical ability that sympathizes with the duos song repertoire. Pia is also performing her own lyrics and instrumental arrangements with Gypsy Wings, that merge into a musical symbiosis of powerful vocals and singing guitar strings.
