At the age of six, Nicole Johänntgen started classical piano lessons and soon after discovered her passion for the saxophone. Her early stage experiences was with her father’s band – “Joe Fuchs Band” at the age of thirteen. She went on to study jazz saxophone, composition and arrangement in Mannheim. Nicole has toured extensively and has released six albums. Multi-instrumentalist, Peter Finc writes, produces, records and releases his own music on his label “DON`T ASK WHY RECORDS”.
Nicole and Peter met through a common friend in Zurich. This was the starting point to many good talks about music and life which led to Peter inviting Nicole as a special guest to perform in the sweet, tiny and fully packed “Bar Enge” in Zurich where the musical chemistry sparked and became an incredible evening of beautiful music filled with good emotions on which they decided to carry on developing this musical relationship that spawned a number of gigs and a German tour where they recorded and produced a live album.
Nicole Johänntgen and Peter Finc’s appearance at The Penang island Jazz Festival is supported by The Embassy of Switzerland, D’Addario Woodwinds and Sennheiser
