Somewhere between alternative and progressive, Aëdon manage the perfect mix of energy, lightness and melancholy. Surprising chord changes, three-part vocals and varied songs characterise their music.
The band was founded in 2015, and their EP Leaves Turning Red was released a year later. The band name Aëdon means “nightingale” and goes back to the tragic story of the goddess Aedon from Greek mythology.
As an act of Peter Bursch’s EURO ROCK project, Aëdon have already played several concerts in France and Holland. In addition to numerous gigs throughout Germany, festivals such as Essen Original, Hardtbeat Festival, Vaccuumfest and Taumzeit Festival are among the highlights.

A happy coincidence brought the band to the attention of Bertram Engel and Peter Keller.
Bertram Engel is a drummer, composer and producer. He has been drumming in Udo Lindenberg’s Panikorchester since the 70s and is a permanent member of the Peter Maffay Band. There he met guitarist Peter Keller, who also belongs to the permanent Maffay ensemble. Peter Keller is an Echo Award winner, composer and producer of Peter Maffay, Laith-Al-Deen, a-ha, Karat and other top acts. Gripped by the 2021 Gentle Rain, Bertram Engel and Peter Keller teamed up as producers for the first time and invited Aedon to Hamburg’s Chefrock studios. In just a few days, three existing songs were perfected – AEDON are ready to conquer the music world in 2023.
AEDON themselves about their music:
“Mood is important to us. We want to make music that you can let yourself fall into, that you sink into and that won’t let go of you for days”.
Now AEDON will open the festival day at the Night Of The Prog Festival on Saturday 15 July 2023! So welcome from Germany: AEDON!
Tickets for the Night Of The Prog Festival 2023 are available in our WiV Ticket Shop!
