Introducing Joachim Bischof

Jochim BischofMany singers, especially those of the younger variety, often concentrate on one style of music – whether that be Pop or Rap or Country.

Although only 15-years-old, Joachim Bischof distains being categorized, being put in a box that would limit his choices in the music he sings.  For Joachim loves music of all kinds – loves to listen to it and, most of all, loves to sing it.  So he asks: Why only pop or classical music?

No matter what he’d be doing,  he could be heard constantly singing. Continue reading “Introducing Joachim Bischof”
