Gert Taberner- Growing up in Frankfurt, Germany, Gert Taberner was exposed to English-speaking culture and eventually made the trek over to Vancouver, B.C. where he decided to further cultivate his musical abilities, particularly in the realm of songwriting. With his music, Gert strives to compensate for what he feels interpersonal relationships these days lack or misinterpret: the concept of intimacy. After completing work on his first record, he set off seeking different challenges, which led him to New York to work on his craft further. Upon returning to Vancouver, Gert has been working on a new record with producer, David Tallarico.
Heavily influenced by the likes of Damien Rice, Paul Simon, and many more, the songs on his debut EP Fallen seek to convey yearning and hope, contrasted by a strong sense of disillusionment. Recent success was found with Taberner’s EP single "In Need" which was picked up and placed in the second season of popular Netflix series, SENSE8.
