"COU-RAGE" Book Release April 2024

"COU-RAGE shows the need to fight for the impossible, to touch and create an image of the impossible peace within us.”



About the book:

In times of users posting themselves uniformly in the mass media, who assimilate their individualities into each other beyond recognition, this book by CROW is a win. His portraits of people - all masters of their own personal destinies - are treasures that enrich us readers by demanding our interest, our tolerance and our respect.

At first glance, COU-RAGE tells the story of completely normal women and men, whose character traits and consistent actions the author explores in conversations in order to highlight their COURAGE and also their ANGER due to their life's fate.

The artist CROW also draws the characters into incredibly condensed image portraits that accompany his conversation protocols and visualize the uniqueness of each individual in a fascinating way.

Collected Poems and Lyrics

(1989 - 2019)


"Find the children of dreams and their words will burn the truth into your laughter." (CROW)


CROW`s painted words of thought dive deep into the readers`mind.

These are no moods. These are bittersweet verse that a metal knife cut out from life- experience straight.

Only the ones who dare to face life`s circumstances, the ones who risk to get hurt, who do not duck away from being struck by treason. Only those, sentenced to sacrifice, who tasted a Judas`Kiss, those will drink the Music of his poetry.

Actor and voice artist WARWICK GILLES reads and recites CROW's 'Tales of Dying Butterflies'. 


Charismatic Warwick Gilles is known by such blockbuster-movies like 'Gone With the Bullets' (by Jiang Wen) and 'Old Boys: The Way of the Dragon' (by Feng Xiaoyang) and many more. He also has a 35 years' experience as a voice-artist dubbing films internationally.

With his exceptional sombre timbre, Warwick Gilles is the congenial Voice Alter Ego for Crow's deep verse. Hearing Warwick voicing Crow's 'paintedwords' along with teasers of Crow's music, this both will make you glow with fascination.

"The Audiobook by Crow and Warwick Gilles is nothin' less than a Coup!" 


Such as the legendary 'The Alan Parsons Project', Crow's-&-Warwick's Audiobook erupts as an acoustic big bang of 'Tales of Mystery and Imagination`. 

Crow's verse are diving deep into the eye of the darkest black hole. 

Crow is a veritable predecessor of Edgar Allan Poe. While Warwick Gilles' Voice gives birth to the verse and songs' lyrics in a spherical congeniality.

Welcome Crow and Warwick Gilles into the universe of the finest artists of Mystery and Imagination. 

Your lyrics and music combined create an indefinite sensation. 

Soul-Brothers essentially. 

Soul-Brothers divine.
