David Lackner

Name: David Lackner

Born: 1972, Vienna

Lives: Vienna

Instrument: Keyboard

Musical beginnings: Piano at the age of 5, first band Jive Jimmy's Revenge when I was 12, various abortive attempts at "official" education (college etc), learning by doing finally prevailed.

Career highlights: Live and studio work with hiphop MC MaTT, Vera Böhnisch, Börn, Thomas Rabitsch, Café Drechsler, The Rounder Girls, Roman Gregory, Boris Uran, Planet E, Louie Austen, Starmania, Dancing Stars and many more.

Favourite music: Prince, Talib Kweli, Missy Elliott, Michael Jackson, Roisin Murphy, Nine Inch Nails, everything from the seventies with wind movements.

On the Linz Europe Tour 2007 I looked forward to: an exclusive yodelling performance for the animals in the Danube delta.

In 2008 I was eager ... to see whether the rivers in western Europe would flow as quickly as those in the east and how the new songs would feel live.

Did you know that ... I play left midfield as well as defensive midfield or backfield for my football team, FC Maccabi Vienna?
