Fiddle, Guitar, Bass, Vocals
Already in early age Matthias took an interest in the violin. After restoring the old instrument of his grandfather he started taking lessons in 2002. During that time Matthias played in several orchestras, amongst them the International Youth Strings Orchestras which has an exchange programme with Scotland. On a trip there Matthias got inspired by traditional Scottish folk music and even received a short lesson in fiddling. In 2009 he added an electronic violin to his choice of instruments.
In 2011 Matthias taught himself to play the piano and guitar. He also founded his school's Big Band and wrote their arrangements. Today he plays the guitar in the Big Band of Siedlinghausen and also performs solo. In March 2011 he met Zinnober at their concert in Wiemeringhausen and spontaneously added some of his fiddle music to their set. Since then he's been a full member of Zinnober.
