Hank Shizzoe

”Those who care about these things have been knowing for a long time that Hank Shizzoe is the best roots-rock songwriter and guitar player who’s not hailing from the US. And that he would still be one of the best even if he did come from the Promised Land.” – Rolling Stone Magazin

Hank Shizzoe, born 1966, lives and works in Bern, Switzerland. He got his first guitar when he was sixteen, and to this day the instrument has never let go of him. 

Later he was writing songs. He still does that today. And he began to sing, a passion that still remains with him today.

Sometime in the nineteen nineties - meanwhile matured into a veritable (slide) guitar virtuoso - he began recording his music. Hank has released 16 albums since 1994.

The next step for Hank, the multi-instrumentalist - he also plays bass, drums, marimba and triangle on his productions - was for him the walk on stage. Since then he has played more than 1,500 concerts, partly solo, partly with his own band or with others, he performed in Trondheim, Tangier, Budapest and Los Angeles as well as many places in between. He has performed with Bob Dylan, Ali Farka Touré, ZZ Top, David Lindley and Bo Diddley, was a member of Stephan Eicher's group and recorded a live album with Sonny Landreth. He played in New York City's famous Carnegie Hall, was awarded the Prix de la Scène of the renowned Paléo Festival Nyon, and has been involved in numerous productions of other musicians, both as a guest player and producer, in genres as diverse as rock, folk and pop, wrote theater and film music, and Hank is a regular guest on radio broadcasts. He loves mountains, forests, motorcycles, California and appreciates good food. www.hankshizzoe.comDetlev Hoegen, Februayr 2019
