Bastian Emig

Bastian Emig

Real/full name:
Bastian Emig
40 (born Mar 4th, 1980)
Place of origin:
Germany (Bingen am Rhein, Rhineland-Palatinate)


Having grown up in the dusty fields of Burkina Faso, Bastian already discovers the drumset at a very young age via his playing of the djembe. Thus, one can hardly imagine a better rhythmic foster mother than the trembling pulse of Africa.

Being back in Germany at an age of six years, he also starts with piano lessons but cancels them after a few attempts, due to his “piano teacher’s” preference ...


Bastian is also the front singer and pianist of the piano metal project IN LEGEND (Homepage) which has just signed to SPV Records and has released its debut album "Ballads 'n' Bullets" on May 20 (GER), May 23 (EU) and June 14 (USA/CAN).
