The STASAN-single “Edge of a Knife” will be out on July 1, 2022. The multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, producer and author comes up with an autobiographical song, well in his typical groovy, Americana style.

“Edge of a Knife” has been written, produced and recorded all by himself in his studio in the south of France. The song is in fact a (very) short description of the extremely unusual life and career of STASAN ranging from the military aircraft to the music industry, or as he says “I see my life going by like a film when I listen to the song…”

OUT ON JULY 1, 2022.

It will be available on all major digital platforms.







The brutal war in the Ukraine, the horrible destruction of a whole country and its population, made singer-songwriter STASAN to express his unconditional solidarity with the people in Ukraine through his song ”Keep Your Dreams Alive”. His song is also a message to the Ukrainian people not to give up and keep dreaming of a better future. For this song, STASAN is honored to have the participation of renowned musicians such as  Chad Cromwell (Stevie Nicks, Mark Knopfler, Neil Young…) Kenny Greenberg (Stevie Nicks, Joe Cocker, Taylor Swift…) and Michael Rodes (J.J. Cale, Steve Winwood, Stevie Nicks, Lady Antebellum…) who may also be part of his next album scheduled for the end of 2022.

All proceeds of the sale of this song go to Caritas International "Aktionsbündnis Katastrophenhilfe".

OUT ON MARCH 18, 2022



MEGABIEN is pleased to announce the release of the new STASAN album “ENSEMBLE”. After “A Long Way”, “Le Sud” and “Serenity”, the new album “ENSEMBLE” is the fourth studio album of STASAN. This time, and due to the pandemic, all songs have been produced and recorded by STASAN himself in his home studio in the South of France.

Although “ENSEMBLE” includes some previous single releases, such as “Danz”, a collaboration with French artist  JM Marquis, or “Help Me” a duet with Spanish/German singer songwriter CABODEVILA and the charting single “Time2Go” featuring again saxophone player David Eiland (D.Bowie, Janet Jackson…), STASAN presents some new songs, different from the musical style you may be familiar with. “Sail Away” and “Who Is Talking” will certainly put a smile in your face and make you like to dance. They are strongly contrasting with the more sad lyrics of the ballads “Outer Space” and “The Child” talking about the future of our children on planet earth. The melancholic, sentimental songs “Love Was Born” and “Call Your Name” talk about stories that happened in STASAN’s personal environment inspiring him spontaneously to make a song about, such as “Peter” which is a homage to his close friend and renowned piano player Peter Schimke who took his life in February 2020.

Last not least, STASAN wrote a song for his beloved cat “Sylvester” telling the story how the little kitten joined the megabien production team during a  birthday celebration…

Ensemble will be released on December 15, 2021 on all international platforms.




Once again, the Minneapolis based singer songwriter STASAN surprises his fans with his particular, recognizable sound and voice, coming up this time with a “latin” style song.

His lyrics are still politically strong and focused on the “fake news” this time. That’s why the song gives an advice to check “Who is Talking”.

The new single will be released worldwide on September 30, 2021 on all major digital platforms






STASAN may surprise his fans with his new single. As the title “DANZ” reveals, STASAN recorded a fast-pace, groovy dance-rock song that makes you move your feet.

French guitarist JM MARQUIS is featured in this track with a wonderful guitar solo. JM MARQUIS contributes tastefully with his signature guitar style to make this single a “must to listen”….

The single “DANZ” will be released on December 14th, 2020. It will be available worldwide on all major digital platforms.





Megabien Music, the label of STASAN, has decided to pre-release a song from his new, upcoming album which is due in October/November 2020. The song "Time2Go", which has already been written a while ago, features lyrics that do sound totally appropriate given the current, worldwide virus pandemic.

Produced at the megabien studios in the south of France, “Time2Go” features again David Eiland, the renowned Minneapolis saxophone player (David Bowie, Janet Jackson, Human League, Jonny Lang… etc.), who participated already on the previous STASAN album “Le Sud”.

Regarding the worldwide lockdown and confinement conditions, STASAN and his label megabien music have decided to publish the “Time2Go” (audio and video) for free download around the world.



The new single HELP ME of STASAN feat. CABODEVILA is set for release on March 27, 2019 on the label megabien music.

HELP ME, written by STASAN, incorporates an upbeat Americana rhythm to an otherwise dreary subject matter – the current political climate. In a call-and-response duet style, STASAN and CABODEVILA question the truth, their news sources, and the actions of world powers through the metaphors of a weather forecast. Consistent with this avant-garde writing style, STASAN strikes a chord in social justice music with this hard-hitting, foot-tapping critique on matters of racism, political parties, and climate change.

STASAN has already previously collaborated with CABODEVILA, who is a German born singer-songwriter and guitarist with Spanish roots. CABODEVILA´s first solo record is due for release in April 2019, celebrated with a release concert at the Maximal Kulturinitiative in Rodgau, Germany on Friday April 13.

HELP ME has been recorded, mixed and mastered at the megabien studios in the Provence.
