People say that if your dreams don‘t scare you, they are not big enough. Not when it comes to Linus Cuno. For him, the opposite rings true; if you have big dreams, they‘re gonna scare the heck out of you.
Being busy with avoiding the quest of what he really wanted to do, it was only after changing studies twice and a highly tumultuous year of 2017, when he finally faced the musical giant he had been running away from for so many years. It was about time to befriend this unpleasant stranger. It was about time to give music a chance.
After his decision to take some time off of his theological studies in December 2017, Linus Cuno – much to his own surprise – entered a season of what he later called a creative explosion. In only four months his mind gave birth to more than 20 songs, which seemed to have waited his whole life for this moment of release. Using his introspective personality, Linus Cuno‘s songs dive into the highs and lows of life. His exploration of happiness, hope and faith is equally met with a genuine look into sadness, doubt and a brokenness that culminates into a celebration of the human experience.
Inspired by greats such as Queen, Amy Winehouse, Benjamin Clementine and Alicia Keys, Linus Cuno composed and arranged all of his works in his steadily expanding home studio and soon began the work on his first LP „The Art Of Life“. Linus Cuno already explored stage life in different locations all over Germany and registered some special successes, including the second place of Theater Chambinzky’s Singer-Songwriter-Contest in Würzburg, Germany.
Linus Cuno revealed his first work in March 2019 with the Trap and R’n’B inspired single „What Is It With Love?“, which was accompanied by its self-directed, animated and edited music video. The jazzy Pop song “Bad Days Good Life“ finally fired the starting pistol for the promotion of his debut album in August 2019. He subsequently published „Water Under The Bridge“ and „Why Do I Feel So Sad?“ as two more harbingers before his full-length “The Art Of Life“ drops on the 13th of December 2019.
When not working on his music, Linus Cuno is a passionate visual artist which can also be seen in his covers and music videos.
