Singer and author: Sven Regener receives the Paul Lincke Ring

The writer, songwriter and singer Sven Regener will be honored this year with the Paul Lincke Ring from the city of Goslar. The 63-year-old singer of the group Element of Crime is a “poetic expert in ironic-laconic tenderness,” said the jury on Friday. The undoped award is given annually to musicians who have made outstanding contributions to German-language music.

“His texts are shaped by personal passions and he draws a landscape of the soul using simple terms,” said Goslar’s ​​mayor Urte Schwerdtner, according to a statement distributed in advance, at the New Year’s reception in the Hahnenklee district. When the award ceremony will take place there and whether the Bremen-born artist will play and sing on site is currently being clarified, the statement continued.

The prize is named after the German operetta composer Paul Lincke (1866-1946) and is awarded at his place of death, the Hahnenklee district of Goslar. Previous winners included Udo Lindenberg, Max Raabe and Helge Schneider and most recently Annett Louisan.
