Dear you and you!
It‘s on!! And then it‘s off again.
How was I supposed to know I‘m projecting when u make my light shine like that?
Hey-ho / what?
news from trouble // march 2019 // SOLO.
It‘s been a while.
I was busy arriving somewhere.
Then sat in silence for a long time until one night my room was filled with ghosts.
Now I don‘t know if I wanna be so quiet again.
Alright, speak soon!
news from trouble // january 2019 /// January Shows.
Welcome to a new year of Trouble and other, less unsettling states of mind.
I hope life is being good to you and the size of your wishes does not exceed every day sunrise.
Here‘s to doing things and being alive on earth.
I‘m starting work on my new record these days, the first one since „Arrowhead“ in 2014.
It might be called NOTHING NEW HERE, but it might not.
Send me your kind thoughts and prayers as I am taking myself apart yet another time, to find out what it is.
All my love to you. What is it?
news from trouble // october 2018 // GOODBYE.
It‘s let-go season, wave and smile!
Alright. Enjoy the wave.
news from trouble // september 2018 // ON WINGS.
I‘m taking my limitations out to wear and meeting lots of mirrors.
Soon I will have crushed them all, which fills me with anticipation for the moment after.
I love you, but it‘s too easy to break you down.
Enjoy your time.
news from trouble // august 2018 // ALONE IN PARADISE.
It‘s very hot these days, and I am doing a lot of dreaming.
news from trouble // june 2018 // KARAOKE !
If you could throw that old bone in the river, where would you be now?
And how quickly would your mouth grow tired from having nothing to chew on?
These and other questions are stirring my mind these days.
In the meantime I‘m being wise for a while, so that I got something to unlearn later.
news from trouble // may 2018 //
Something moved, something else didn‘t. I‘m still here, counting on nothings.
news from trouble // april 2018
„I DON‘T WANNA FEEL DEAD ANYMORE.“
My new single HOPE MUSIC is out today!
It features some eastern philosophy and cellos.
I‘ll be seeing you.
news from trouble // april 2018
It‘s everything, then it‘s nothing.
Which means it comes and goes, all the time.
The trick is to never get hung up, but who am I to give suggestions about what makes sense here?
see you sometime.
news from trouble // march 2018 // MONSTRUOUS.
You haven‘t heard from me in a while.
I was busy escaping some traps I had built for myself.
It was very tedious, but something good came from it; I made some trap-music !
In other news I found a door that fits my keys and I‘m gonna open it.
Let‘s hope it‘s not another trap.
Love to all of you.
news from trouble // december 2017 // DECEMBER TOURS.
I‘m getting busy towards the end of the year. Better late than never, right?
Love to all of you.
news from trouble // october 2017 // PLANS.
There has been a long silence, let‘s catch up...
I lost my mind in July, found it again in early September. Dabbled in meditation and tried to arrive in the moment. Spent some time there and decided it was scary. Took a train that ran in a circle, then got off and decided to walk. Passed by a dog and made eye contact. Found new friends, including myself.
Now it‘s ok forever, the arrow is straight and I got new plans HEY!
That‘s the plan(s)
I hope life has you well
news from trouble // september 2017 // SUNSET EVERYTIME.
New video out today! It is a virtual memorial of our former tourbus JIMMY BOEING and I want to dedicate it to the late Trouble band for the wonderful summers of music, inspiration and support; Rebecca Vonlaufen, Flo Götte, Domi Chansorn, Olivier Zurkirchen, Paul Amereller, Tapiwa Svosve.
news from trouble // july 2017 // TRUST.
I´ve ended up somewhere I haven´t been before. Can you believe it?
On a cross, singing to a drone / On an island, sitting on the back of a horse.
Meanwhile new Trouble-songs are slowly taking shape and things are falling in and out of place.
I hope you are well
news from trouble // may 2017 // SIDEKICK TROUBLE.
Thank you everyone who came to our shows last month for making them so special. Trouble+Boys will be taking a break now. I need time to figure out the question if music can change the world or if it should just stop trying.
news from trouble // april 2017 // JIMMY GOES TO SENEGAL.
All things must pass, especially the past.
Our beloved tourbus JIMMY BOEING is being taken to Senegal to spend the rest of his life in Africa. He‘s travelled with us the last 7 years and this show is our goodbye to him. Come and celebrate! Bring your friends!
Hashtag YOLO! No way back!
news from trouble // march 2017 // MARCH.
Sorry for the silence, I had some kind of living to do.
news from trouble // january 2017 // HEAL THE WORLD.
I spent the beginning of this fateful year as a volunteer in Greece, where currently over 70‘000 refugees are stuck with nowhere to go, with new arrivals every day.
I painted some walls. I taught some english. I stared at the ocean. I took a bus. I learned some Arabic. But mostly I just observed and tried to make sense of it all.
A brief insight on my thought process and more information at the bottom of this email.
OPEN THE BORDERS- Heal the world.
news from trouble // end of the year 2016 // JUST A FEVER.
The year is almost over and I would like to wish it farewell with a little moviesong. It starrs mostly clouds and wild life. From me to you, „Just A Fever“.
MMXVI CLOSING STATEMENT
I expected more of this year and of this world. I still do. My deepest wish for 2017?
I WANT A GLOBAL PEOPLE‘S MOVEMENT OF PROGRESS TOWARDS A BETTER WORLD.
I want free movement for every person on this planet. I want human rights to be respected by international corporations and governements. I want laws that protect the environment. I want laws that end consumerism and mass production. I want art and culture that isn‘t mass production. I want state-owned media to be more progressive and diverse. I want private owned media to be held to standards of journalism. I want to see the global music industry in the hands of musicians, not thiefs. I want advertising out of my face and a trial phase of 20 years of matriarchat worldwide. The list goes on, but it starts here.
Most of all I wanna stop whining and take action to see it changed, alongside people that feel the same way. That is -at this moment- my deepest wish for the future.
All my love, see you soon.
news from trouble // december 2016 // WAX MUSIC.
Don‘t worry, it will be alright.
I sold my soul to the devil; I took part in reality TV. I hope you can forgive me.
news from trouble // october 2016 // SHED IT.
I‘m switching places a lot these days so if you want to find me you‘ll need a map with holes. Or a really really fast car.
Still I hope to see you soon and be reunited in a space where no time has passed.
lots of love // no-shoes-new-shoes-trouble.
news from trouble // august 2016 // GONE STRANGE.
Now that I‘ve gone strange / I wanna leave all the way
Now that I‘ve gone strange / Mirrors don‘t recognise my face
I wanna leave all the way / I wanna look away
Thank you TAPIWA SVOSVE for the beautiful saxophone parts, Olivier Zurkirchen a.k.a. OLAN for the technobeat and YURY SHAROV for filming with a high fever.
Come see us live before everything changes, here:
news from trouble // july 2016 // BRUISED.
Yesterday I had a good long talk with my friend and drummer Domi Chansorn about growing and moving in different directions at different speed: Upward/ Onward/ Inward/ Forward/ Sideways/ Nowhere/ All of us/ At the same time/ In the same space.
Isn‘t it a miracle that we‘re not always bruising each other to death?
„That‘s what talking was invented for, to minimize bruises“ I thought on my ride home then fell off the bike.
get bruised-see you
news from trouble // june 2016 // JUNE.
I cannot believe it‘s June already. If all goes well, I will turn 27 this month (!)
news from trouble // march 2016 //
Welcome to another month of trouble that may or may not help pass the time.
In other news I still think our humanity has a future but I might just be high on pollen.
news from trouble // march 2016 // ARROWHEAD.
„Arrowhead“ is finally out on Vinyl and will be in store by friday.
Sorry for the wait, it wasn‘t me.
to you and you.
news from trouble // february 2016
Thank you. Here‘s the news.
In the picture below; me and batman on our honeymoon last winter. It was rainy.
news from trouble // january 2016
Happy new beginnings to you all, in your heads and outside!
Here‘s what the near future brings for trouble.
So let‘s go.
And don‘t look back.
news from trouble // december 2015
There‘s been a silence, it felt right. Here‘s what‘s up.
In other news; I‘m learning to be a positive thinker!
Not easy but I‘m getting there. For instance; did you know the glass is half full when you turn your head upside down?
news from trouble // october 2015
Below is a fan video of us playing A$AP Rocky‘s „LSD“ (skip to minute 2:00 for the song beginning.)
The song is about
- getting high (and then getting low)
- falling in love (and then out of it again)
- trippin‘ in the city (and then going back to bed)
So where is the light switch?
And WHO LET YOU IN HERE?
so many questions.
news from trouble // september 2015
I‘m back home in London after a wild summer with lots of gigs, headless ventures and eyes I haven‘t seen before. Now there is a lot of noise in my mind, one that I enjoy listening to while I‘m waiting to calm down.
I wanna say THANK YOU for the kind words I‘ve received from people who enjoy „Arrowhead“. It means the world to me and I hope to see you on the road so that I can sing for you.
news from trouble // august 2015
how is everyone?
did you know that I will always love you?
news from trouble // june 2015

news from trouble // may 2015
I‘ll worry later baby my attitude‘s a parachute if life‘s not being good to you sail down with me for better news.
It‘s all coming undone.
The release of ARROWHEAD had to be postponed due to some stormy weather over the pond and will be out in September. At this point I would prefer to just bury it in an archive somewhere and write “nice try” on it in shaky handwriting. But yeah, Youtube vids are being made, photos and all of these things that make music consumable these days. (Some video stills below.)
Due to the delay our show in Moods had to be moved, which is now on the 30th October. Bought tickets should still be valid.
I‘ll be frank with you; I feel out of touch. If you are still excited about ARROWHEAD and the whole TROUBLE mysteria shout out to me! Meanwhile I‘ll be trying to get a hang of the social media for the sake of our mutual relationship. Look here for example this is my Instagram: @evelinntrouble
I‘m playing keyboards for my man STRESS at the festival dates in June, check the schedule here.
Entertainment for the masses, someone‘s gotta do it!
news from trouble // march 2015
Playing Salomé in the remake of the classical opera by Richard Strauss, we‘ve taken the original content and I‘ve written new music for it. It‘s the story of a princess of a rotten kingdom who always gets what she wants. When the prophet Iokanaan refuses her love, she has his head served to her on a silver plate. Yes, she is a mental case.
„Regret is in my smile, but joy is my tears
as I dance to the sound
of the wings in the wind
and the whimper of thee;
I will make you bleed.
‚Cause you chose to believe
and you chose not to see.“
Hope to see you there. It might be cathartic.
Speaking of; Catharsis I-III is now on Soundcloud.
news from trouble // winter 2015
It‘s been a while.
I spent my winter out of control, burning, destroying mind-castles.
The air is stagnant now and it smells of ashes.
We recorded some standards for the comedown,
from me to you:
hope you enjoy.
news from trouble // january 2015
Before going over there again, I will play three shows over here.
Come say hi and so long.
When you‘ve never seen an elephant, you might mistake the tiger for the biggest animal.
But it just isn‘t. And that‘s that.
happy new everything
news from trouble // december 2014
It‘s the holy season and - like every year - I intend to annihilate myself and be newborn by the end of it.
Meanwhile, I have some very exciting shows coming up.
Me and my two magic companions will perform ARROWHEAD in it‘s newest newbornest form. It keeps changing still, like everything else does in this damned dimension.
now get lost!
and take my love with you!
news from trouble // november 2014
For this special occasion me and Joy have dug out our secret, most treasured songs. They haven‘t been played in public before. One is about holes, one is about Lunacy, another one is about a showdown of love. And we slipped in a classic from the „Wizard of Oz“. There will be a grandpiano and probably some whisky.
see you here there
news from trouble // october 2014
It‘s been a while. Here, there, everywhere.
Something is still burning although it has started to rain a lot, every day.
ARROWHEAD is finished, just needs a raincoat and a roof over the head.
I have a little tour coming up NEXT WEEK:
We‘ll play Arrowhead, from top to bottom and back.
hope you can be there.
news from trouble // september 2014

INVITATION to the
ARROWHEAD IGNITION CEREMONY
I have written a new album. It is called „Arrowhead“: a suite consisting of eight songs, exploring different states of mind in a transition to nowhere. I will record it next week at Invada Studios Bristol with my beloved band. Before we‘re headed there on sunday we would like to play it to you here:
ARROWS!! We are very excited.
