Still Parade was launched in Summer 2013 when Berlin-based songwriter and producer Niklas Kramer uploaded his debut track 'Actors' to Soundcloud without revealing any background information on the project. The song instantly went viral and made it into the top ten on Hype Machine after overwhelming blog support from all over the world. This initial success encouraged Niklas to release a four-track EP (‘Fields’) in Spring 2014. Each song from the record continued to receive widespread international recognition. Even though small pieces of information on the enigmatic character behind Still Parade were slowly leaking, Niklas still managed to maintain a beguiling mystery around his persona - not as a marketing stunt, more as an assertion of letting the music speak for itself.
On stage he is accompanied by three multi-instrumentalists to make up a four-piece unit. In the first year of their existence they played The Great Escape, Reeperbahnfestival, Berlin Festival as well as other headline shows throughout Europe (London, Amsterdam, Paris, Stockholm, Vienna). Niklas is currently working on Still Parade’s debut-album, focussing adeptly on coupling 1980s songwriting styles with 1960s production techniques.
