FORLORN ELM

INSTRUMENTAL ROCK MEETS MODERN JAZZ

«Dort, wo neben erdigen Grooves die Klänge von Rock, Modern Jazz und Pop Wurzeln schlagen, wächst eine Ulme heran, durch deren Blätter Melodien sanft wie der Wind wehen»

«Berner Rock der anderen Art: Instrumental, vielseitig und jenseits von Trends. Das Trio hat das Händchen für eine Musik, die sich vieler Quellen bedient und so eingängig wie eigenständig den Weg ins Ohr findet.» – Arno Troxler, Jazzfestival Willisau

«Hendrix meets Zappa & fusion… Swiss elegance.» – Last Day Deaf

«Forlorn Elm’s new album Milya shines with collective creativity and musical excitement. Forlorn Elm is a jazz-fusion trio from the mountain mists of Bern, Switzerland. The name, artwork and bandleader David Friedli’s magnificent hairstyle all set the paste for what you will get yourself into, when picking up the album.
Forlorn Elm rocks! Their second album Milya is an original accomplishment of three strong, individual musician with a hardcore passion for music, a deep understanding for jazz and much love for rock.
Hard to tell whether this is still jazz or already rock or the other way around. Who needs genre boundaries in 2019? It’s freaking good music! Powerful, passionate and straight from the heart.
Forlorn Elm sounds both emotional and fearless. With songs delving in space, time and color. Not too flashy, not too humble. Mysterious moods shift to piercing melodic proclamations, with a driving
groove.» – UK Vibe
