Mathias was born in France, grew up in Germany and has worked as a musician in England and the USA.In his previous music project he released an album and an EP as The Lone John Harps.
In 2017 Mathias settled in Berlin, where he has since worked as a live, studio and street musician and started his new project “Phileas”.
As part of this project, various musicians (Mya Audrey, Gidon Carmel, Katharina Chu) and producers (Clement Doumic, René Riewer) collaborated with Mathias to produce ten songs.His personal experiences have increasingly led him to address socially relevant issues such as migration policy (Won’t (Song for Majid)), democratic principles (For your own Safety), religious extremism (Goddam Blues), and collective action against social injustice (Satyagraha).
At the same time, his individual development and maturity are refected in songs that give a more personal insight into his inner world (Breathe, Eternal Refrain, Better Days).
