About Nils Wülker

Like his best-selling fellow countryman Till Brönner, German trumpet player Nils Wülker reaches the pop charts with his accessible jazz records, but where Brönner moves between several distinctive styles, Wülker's sound is generally more fusion-based, combining his soft, clear trumpet tone with pop, electronic music, smooth funk, and some sonic experimentation into an engaging whole. After establishing himself with several well-received albums on his own label Ear Treat, including the gold record-winning Safely Falling (2007) and Just Here, Just Now (2012), Wülker signed with Warner and released a widely noticed trio of albums with guest stars like Jill Scott, Craig Armstrong, Marteria, and Theo Croker: Up (2015), On (2017), and Go (2020). He continued to explore new modes on his orchestral record Continuum (2022), and on a duo album with his longtime creative partner, guitarist Arne Jansen called Closer (2023).
