NihilsThomas Lackner (Drums) and Ramon Riezouw (Singer/Songwriter) started playing together in 2005. Being friends and neighbors since childhood, built a solid foundation for creating a band. After Dominik Brunner (Bassist) joined the band the genre of music slowly took shape. After a year of rehearsing regularly, they invited Florian Nothegger (Guitarist) to the band and with him found the completion of members.
The band went through several names before deciding on “nihils”, which describes a “non belief” in any rules that apply to music. The music which has a warm, dynamic and rich feel to it, hovers somewhere within the Indie/Pop/Alternative genre but varies from song to song. The band had their first local gig in 2007 and continued performing regularly from then on. During the years, they have had concerts in Tirol, Salzburg, Oberösterreich and in Kärnten, building a strong fan base.
One of the highlights of the band’s career was in 2009 when they participated in an online audition to support Nena at her Concert in St.Martin im Innkreis. Amongst 240 Bands, 3 Bands including Nihils were chosen by a group of judges consisting of musicians, publishers and Nena herself. These last months the band has spent recording their first LP at Woodway Studio. The band is keen to jumpstart their career on to a higher level this coming year and perform as much as they can.
