About

After being the first German musician to record at the infamous Abbey Road studios, RIPL moved to Scotland to expand his musical vision. Since then RIPL has dominated the UK’s open mic scene and has worked alongside Brit and Grammy Award-winning producers on previous releases including his debut single ’Of Course I Can’.

In 2018 RIPL returned to our ears with his second single, ’EMA’, recorded in Grammy-winning producer Jake Gosling’s (Ed Sheeran, The Libertines) Sticky Studios  in London. Oozing RIPL’s soaring, impassioned vocals and delicate strummed guitar melodies, ’EMA’ is a truly infectious slice of folk-pop. Reflecting on those times in life when you try desperately to make yourself heard.

Sonically tinged in the same vein as distinguished artists such as Frank Turner, Ben Howard, Frightened Rabbit and The Lumineers, his third single ‘Mai’s Song’ sees RIPL add another delicious slice of rich folk-pop to his plate. The video for ‘Mai’s Song’ sees RIPL take the form of several other well known singers and performers including Adele, Liam Gallagher, Ed Sheeran and Paul McCartney.

This year Ripl released his enigmatic re-invention of, ‘Chokeslam,’ which features Sebastian Wende from American skate punk band, Bad Advice. Chokeslam is a light-hearted and humorous track about a person who is protected by their professional wrestling champion girlfriend. 

“I saw Bad Advice at a battle of the bands when they couldn’t afford their own instruments and they smashed their guitars on stage after they played, ‘Chokeslam,’ which was hilarious to watch. When I heard this song for the first time, I felt it was more of a ballad rather than a punk song, so we decided to hit the studio together to work on a new version of the track.”
