Jens Friebe (born 1975 in Lüdenscheid) is a German musician and music journalist. He studied musicology, English language and literature, and philosophy. After playing for several years with rather unknown bands such as "Parka" and "Bum Khun Cha Youth," a solo appearance in Hamburg in 2003 lead to contact with Alfred Hilsberg, who helped him release his debut album "Vorher Nachher Bilder" (literally: pictures of before and after). The album came out in March 2004 on Hilsberg's Label ZickZack Records. One song appeared in advance on a ZickZack label compilation.
