Stefan Ulbricht was born in Bonn in February, 1982. Already at the age of 5, he became interested in music and started to take guitar lessons. At the age of 14 he switched to the piano and was infected by the „boogie and blues virus“ in 1997 while watching boogie and blues on tv.
Playing solo piano, or accompanied by other musicians, the audience enjoys his fast and melodious boogies as well as jazz and blues songs from the 30‘s, 40‘s and 50‘s. The rolling bass figures, played with his pounding left hand, and the swinging melody are his trademarks. This is clearly evident in listening to his own compositions or well known classics like "Boogie Woogie Stomp" or "Lady Be Good“ in the style of Albert Ammons.
His latest CD "Big, Bigger, Boogie“, was recorded on the world‘s largest grand piano serially produced, the Fazioli F 308, in April 2009 with Moritz Schlömer on the drums, who is a versatile and exceptional boogie pianist, too. The sound of the Fazioli F 308 is outsanding and can be heard throughout the record.
On October 24, Stefan Ulbricht was honored with the 2009 German Boogie Woogie Award "Pinetop“ as best piano player in the category "Rising Star 2009“.
