I am Pablo Held, pianist, composer from Cologne, Germany.
Back in the summer of 2018 I started interviewing my musical heroes and peers, giving birth to the critically acclaimed interview series Pablo Held Investigates.
My conversation with the legendary Wayne Shorter was the one that got the whole thing started. Since then I spoke with distinguished artists like John Scofield, Bill Stewart, Ben Monder, Joey Baron, Chris Potter, Norma Winstone, Dave Longstreth, Gabriel Kahane, Larry Goldings and many more.
Without a doubt this is one of the biggest learning experiences of my life. It brings me great joy to see that people from all over the world have found meaningful insights in these conversations. I feel that sharing a learning-experience has the power to unite people from various backgrounds.
Producing, editing and promoting these interviews takes up a lot of time and energy besides my extensive touring schedule, teaching duties and time with my family. This is why I hope that you'll consider chipping in a bit to help me keep this project* going for a long time!
Thank you in advance for your support!
*The interview series will always be available for free, promise!
