"Putting a label on this music is difficult, jazz is an important element, but the telling singing by Erna is the main part, I call it "German chansons". Recommended!"

About the album

The songs of Erna Rot lure again and again with unexpected twists and capture their audience. (Jazz thing) Erna Rot likes two English words, to which she has dedicated a whole album. Not without reason, do they merge German with English and Erna Rot with jazz and chanson. "Angst & Weltschmerz", the ACT-debut of the Berlin-born singer-songwriter, combines sounds that seem to come from the deepest shores of the American southern states with European songwriting traditions. But what makes this album so special are the lyrics: melancholy, serious songs of loss and forgiveness, and gently hovering songs about the heaviness of life, facilitated by everyday encounters.
