So long as Busker Diaries keeps churning out documentaries about absolutely fascinating street musicians, I’ll keep featuring them here on ‘musings.’ They’re now three for three. The Daily Dot first wrote about Berlin street musician Stephen Paul Taylor last December, talking about his anti-establishment “Everybody Knows Sh*t’s F*cked” performance. A short while after, Busker Diaries decided to do one of their web documenties about him. They follow him from his street corner to his first German television show. Through the documentary, he “tells about his alter egos, self-fulfillment and how the internet hype changed his life.” It shows him performing on a Berliner U-Bahn train.
Tyler is a synth-pop artist with decidedly ’80s sensibilities (think Depeche Mode, B-52s, Talking Heads) with a touch of ’70s glam thrown in for good measure. He’s been making music since 2012, with performances around Berlin and in Finland, Austria, Belgium, Holland and Switzerland. He has a new album coming out, Single and Seventeen, set for release on SPT Records on June 1.
Busker Diaries films mini-documentaries about street performers, telling their personal stories and highlighting their music, introducing them to the world through the Internet. You can donate to the cause and recommend musicians to be profiled.
