Julia Hofer, Jacky Bastek: Toxic (Britney Spears)


Yes, I am. And not just alive, I'm also back on the youtube video front! After spending the last three years touring on my own I grew a bit lonely and teamed up with epic Bassist Julia Hofer.

I'm very excited to share our new project all about exploring the possibilities that come with various string instruments and just two people. And here is the product of a romantic idea becoming reality: A live version of Britney Spear's classic, Toxic, on a Breedlove Mandolin and a Double Bass.

I really hope you enjoy our arrangement. And if you do, please share with your friends, your family, your pets and maybe even your enemies... We really want to get out there and play shows together. So your support means a lot to us.

Stay tuned for more content of Julia and myself.
New Guitar Related/Solo-Fingerstyle tunes will be coming, too.

How to get connected:

Thanks for your support and being incredibly kind and motivating throughout the years even though I've been way too shy for the camera in the past.

Special thanks to: Gerfried Hecke for recording this video, Jean-Marc Perc for recording the sound, Daniel Wrase for mixing the sound and Manfred Tischitz and Michael Hecher for helping us.

All the best,

Toxic (Britney Spears) - Julia Hofer & Jacky Bastek
