German indie folk trio AnnenMayKantereit began their profession in 2011 busking in the roads of Cologne. Utilizing their surnames to comprise the band’s moniker, guitarist Christopher Annen, vocalist/pianist Henning May, and percussionist Severin Kantereit mix streetwise indie folk with rhythm-heavy rock and roll, peppering their distinct sound with extra equipment like melodica, harmonica, and accordion. Performing in German with periodic British lyrics, they’ve created a quirky design led by May’s bluesy baritone tone of voice. Their debut record, AMK, was self-released in 2013 plus they obtained exposure through some guerilla-style YouTube movies of the music group performing go on the road, in the forest, in watercraft, and other exclusive places. As their popularity grew, they started touring German night clubs and making performances at major celebrations in the united states. In 2015, AnnenMayKantereit agreed upon with Universal Information and released the live EP Wird Schon Irgendwie Gehen.
