Listen to Gert Taberner’s ‘Fallen’ from New Amsterdam, Season 2, Ep. 4, “The Denominator” — it’s beautiful

German native, now New York-based indie folk singer songwriter Gert Taberner’s ‘Fallen‘ was featured on this week’s episode of the medical drama New Amsterdam — Season 2, Episode 4, “The Denominator“.

His song is the beautiful track playing through Max’s headphones as he pushes Luna in a baby jogger.

Gert Taberner’s ‘Fallen‘ is the title track from his debut 3-track EP, which was released in 2016.

And what I love about Gert Taberner’s ‘Fallen‘ is not just the gorgeous melody and his beautiful voice.

It is also that quirky accent he has as he sings.

An accent very much like fellow German Alice Merton — another German singer with a similar twist to the way she pronounces certain vowels. A twist that makes every song sound so incredibly touching and cool.

As for Taberner, though, his musical influences are more of the Paul Simon, Damien Rice, Ben Howard, Bon Iver, The Lumineers variety.

And about his music, his Facebook page stresses this:

With his music, he strives to compensate for what he feels interpersonal relationships these days lack or misinterpret: the concept of intimacy.

With his release of ‘Fallen‘, I think he managed just that beautifully.

Listen to Gert Taberner’s ‘Fallen‘ from New Amsterdam in his official music video below.

And can I just say I’ll bet he was thrilled to see one of his big musical influences, Damien Rice, also had a song featured on the same episode.

You can hear his debut EP Fallen in its entirety in the Spotify widget below the video too, and buy the digital EP on Bandcamp.

And a special note, Hey Gert, if you’re ever in Vienna, Austria let me know. I’d pay good money to hear you live!
