Singer/Songwriter Not Profane already gained several million views on Youtube. In addition to his vocal skills and writing his own songs, he also works as a producer and songwriter for other artists. The blond surfer-like looking has collaborated with the creative minds behind acts like Miley Cyrus, Snoop Dogg and Ashley Tisdale. Moreover, he has charted in the Top 40 in several countries, including for his work with the Dutch teen star Jeronimo on his single "Somebody Who Loves Me"
2012, the german singer, producer and songwriter released the powerful sports anthem "Heart Of A Lion" featuring bosnian’s famous child star Caylana, which generated almost 120.000 views on spotify + youtube together. Followed by several appearances on german TV and a small club tour, he shot the music video with just a few friends and invited 80 of them to an awesome mansion with a pool that he had rented. Half a year later he released his solo debut single "All In My Head“ that is his most succesful single up to date. It entered several Youtube Charts and reached even more plays on Spotify than his first collaboration.
Some may find it hard to believe that he creates all of his music, shoots, cuts and produces all the music videos on his Youtube channel on his own. He now has over 100 videos online, and even without the help of major labels or big budgets; he has over 4.5 million views! Among those are a few cover versions of stars like Bruno Mars, David Guetta and Jason Derulo as well as self-produced original singles and tracks, including songs with Ahmir and Bosnia's #1 pop export Caylana. All songs are ultimately released digitally via his own music and fashion label going by the name “No Parade”, which he founded in 2012.
„I didn’t just want to do merchandise, I wanted to create an unique brand and take it to another level with my Caps.“
Not Profane designed his own high quality premium headwear series called: Not Profane Caps
"Being able to overcome the obstacles of being a one-man show will only make me stronger and make me continue the pursuit of my dreams.
Starting at a young age Not Profane spent his days on tennis courts all over the world. The Karlsruhe-born producer, songwriter and singer always wanted to become a professional tennis player. Not until quite late at seventeen actually, he discovered his passion for music, inspired by a visit to a "Britney Spears" concert.
"The moment I saw the crowd singing along from the bottom of their hearts, I knew for sure this is what I want to do."
This was when he replaced his tennis racket, which can still be spotted in many of his videos, either leaning against a keyboard or a computer, with music. Had it not been for his sister and mother wanting to take music lessons and leaving a piano at home at his display, he might have never discovered his love for music. Having no prior experience or knowledge in sheet music, he started composing songs on this seemingly simple instrument, solely based on hearing and “feeling” the sounds.
"Thank God," all has happened as it should. This is how his artist name "Not Profane" came about. When you take a closer look at his logo you might even discover a small cross, a symbolism of his faith. This is an indication that he doesn't see a need to hide his faith in Jesus, much more, he is proud and uses it as inspiration for himself and hopefully for others.
During the current stage of his life he spends day and night at his studio, producing and pursuing his dream, while sleepless nights go past him, only one goal in sight – “making it” in this so competitive industry that has grown to be his love since age seventeen.
Not Profane is determined to impress the world of pop, by stepping into the light as a solo artist and singer. He is currently working on his debut album that will feature several huge Youtube Artists.
