Michel Ebben Live 2013-2017 & Ring of Fire
August 2017

Michel Ebben Live 2013-2017
Michel has been playing live for over more than twenty years now. From small venues to main stages at festivals, mostly solo and other times with his band. Every show is unique; intense and witty, filled with stories, sometimes a joke or a response to what is happening in the moment, in dialogue with the audience. But one thing you can be sure of, you never know what’s about to happen when going to one of Michel’s concerts.

Ring of Fire is the first single, recorded live at RTV Rijnmond during the daily radio show Rijnmond Nu, in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Scenes used in this music video are taken from 'The Journey' - an LGBTQI short Film written & directed by Kerri Rose Cecil and winner of the Best Short Video at the Transgender Film Festival 2014 in Germany. Used with kind permission.
