It’s 8 in the morning. Sounds not like the time we usually meet up with musicians who are ready to play for an enthusiastic crowd. But that’s how Matthäus Bär and his entourage rolls. The Vienna-based songwriter has always been into music and has played in an indie rock band before starting to write and play songs for children. Becoming a father might have played a role in Matthäus’ new field of musical activity. It did not take long until he became pissed of by cheesy children’s songs with their cheaply produced keyboard sounds, so he thought why not doing a decent production with real instruments. And that was the hour of birth of Matthäus Bär who either performs solo or with his Little Hipster Band. However, on the day of our filming session the yound and well-dressed musician practices the “Ice” song with the excited pupils of an elementary school. The kids are in high spirits when performing the song – including some dancing, singing and playing of instruments – for another class. After this early-morning-action they are eager to listen closely to a best of Matthäus Bär’s engaging songs.
