Ralph was fascinated by music of all kinds from an early age. He was 9 years old when his grandfather took him to the soundcheck of a live band that was supposed to play in the neighborhood for the wedding. When he saw and heard the band, he decided “I want to be a musician”.
Shortly afterwards he began taking organ lessons and at the age of 11 he was on stage for the first time. Later he learned to play guitar and drums by himself. He always sang anyway.
In the course of time he worked in various bands, primarily on the drums and as a singer. After a varied life, Ralph had the opportunity to finally follow his “star” in 2008 and become a professional musician in the Oldenburg area realize.
Since 2015 he has been concentrating exclusively on the prog & space rock band papergrass and their project ´Stark durch Musik`!
Ralph is a founding member, singer, bassist, percussionist, composer, lyricist and presenter.
All his energy and heart and soul flows into this band. He composes his songs and ideas on the keyboard or on the guitar. Some melodies or arrangements also rush into his head in the shower. In addition, the only child with the zodiac sign Gemini is a spontaneous planner, a creative communicator, a fanatic, a mediator, a listener and a Christian-thinking, freedom-loving, sensitive crazy person.
