We say

Let us introduce you to Trickster, an artist born in Austria and now residing in England, whose life story is quite a tale to tell. From a broken family, he started to play the piano at a young age but got rejected from music school and ended up performing in strip clubs by the time he turned 16. After a brief stint in prison for financial missteps, he became a polyglot, speaking 11 languages, while he travelled to 97 countries and earned a living being a soldier, pilot and selling oil and gas. In 2017 in the South of France, he was in a perilous car accident, which inspired, and is depicted in this captivating release. Produced by Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams), Richard Flack and Trickster, Still Kicking draws on late '90s alternative rock, Americana and cinematic soundscapes to help paint the dramatic and life-changing event sonically. Perfect for alternative editorial playlists at DSPs and spins on 6 Music and Virgin, the song is also ripe for sync with gritty streaming TV shows. Watch the video here. With an album worth of material ready to go that draws on various genres, there is plenty more to come from this intriguing new artist.
