Get Well Soon is the musical vision of Berlin based songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and philosophy graduate Konstantin Gropper. His debut album, 'Rest Now, Weary Head, You Will Get Well Soon' went into the Official Top 30 German album charts on its release and caused a stir in Konstantin's native home, with comparisons being made to Tom Waits, Beirut and Bright Eyes. Legendary film director Wim Wenders asked Konstantin to write two tracks for his latest film 'The Palermo Shooting', alongside Portishead, Lou Reed, Calexico and Will Oldham. His second album, 'Vexations', was released in 2010 to much acclaim, and the third, 'The Scarlet Beast o' Seven Heads' followed in 2012. Commissions to write film and television soundtracks followed, as well as an invitation to score a high profile theatre production at the Frankfurt Schauspiel.

Live, Konstantin is augmented by a six piece band made up of family and friends playing a cacophony of instruments including trumpets, banjo, glockenspiel and accordion. The band have played sell out European headline tours, as well as opening for Bon Iver and Nada Surf.
