"INTERNATIONAL ARTIST OF THE YEAR 2014"
PrivatProjekt was emerged from a melody Michel Reckhard had in mind for several days.
Looking for this repeating sound in his head, he tried finding out whose track that was by humming it to people and whistling it into a software programm. Then it dawned on him: this is something I created on my own, something you can´t buy!
He searched for his old keyboard and started looking for a recording studio. Thus, Michel and Alexander met and it soon became clear that a very creative and productive combination would develop out of their cooperation.
The whole arrangement and lyrics could be finished within only one day. After a short period of searching they found Maysha and so they were able to produce and release the song "That is what I need". During this first production Michel and Alexander developed a sound that is typical for PrivatProjekt and within six months they created the songs for their first album "RoundTrip" which was sold as far as to the USA and New Zealand.

In the meantime the second studio album "layOver" has been released.
It soon got about in Hamburg that a bunch of lunatics were looking for singers and instrumentalists. Thus the starting line-up of PrivatProjekt came together. All of them are artists who enjoy working together with enthusiasm and with the will to create music, that they themself would listen to.
Right from the beginning PrivatProjekt took pleasure in integrating guest musicians to their productions and live appearances. Every single one of them enriches the project and expands the musical range
