Since 2013, FRED VOGEL has been playing the local singer-songwriter scene in Copenhagen as an acclaimed one-man show. His Swedish-American accent mixed with the Danish language and a light-hearted approach combine to make a highly engaging and emotional experience. The genre for the one-man show can be described as "Lounge Jazz Poetry".
Having grown up in New York City, FRED VOGEL relocated for a brief period to his native Stockholm and became a singer in the Swedish band SMISK (English: Spank) together with Mats Burman, Lars Kronlund, Joakim Stokstad, and Per Ingels. They toured the Stockholm area and released a single on EMI in 1979 that recieved airplay on public radio until the band broke up.
Back in New York FRED VOGEL formed FANTASTIC LIFE and THE K-CLUB in New York City in the early 1980`s. The bands were created and concieved together with legendary multi-artist Simon Kahn, and cinematographer Bob Gorelick. They performed at venues such as CBGB'S OMFUG, Peppermint Lounge and Tompkins Square Park.
In the mid 1980`s Fred Vogel left New York again for his native Stockholm and together with drummer Tomas Rudal, Andreas af Malmborg, Jock Millgård and singer Pia Kalischer they formed the bands TA-DA and RUSSIANS PUMP MOSTOIL. These Swedish bands played mostly on the art club scene.
In the 1990`s Fred Vogel had local underground bands in Copenhagen. The names of these bands were THE OLOF PALME GROUP and NO DADDY NO.
As a true poly-linguistic creature, Fred Vogel sings in his native languages (Swedish, English and Danish) as well as exploring instrumental dimensions in his work.
