Trickster has enlisted Guy Chambers – the songwriter behind Robbie Williams’ biggest hits – for his latest single, Still Kicking.
Inspired by a perilous 2017 car accident in the south of France, which resulted in the loss of all his physical assets but saw him survive remarkably unscathed, the cinematic track draws on late-nineties alt-rock and Americana to convey his story.
‘I don’t know how, I don’t know why, there must be a reason why I didn’t die / I can’t pretend, it don’t make sense, somehow I’m still kicking it for one more night,’ he sings.

Born in Austria and now residing in England, Trickster’s journey is an extraordinary tale of perseverance and transformation.
Fleeing home at the age of 10 with the hope of reuniting his parents, his path took unpredictable turns including brushes with the law and a prison sentence at the age of 18 for financial missteps.
However, with a long-held passion for music – he learned to play piano aged three – he turned his life around, became a polyglot (speaking an impressive 11 languages) and later served as a pilot and a soldier.
In the coming year, Trickster plans to establish the largest talent factory in the UK, providing much-needed support to young individuals who, like him, lacked the necessary guidance during their formative years.
He’s also maintained a strong commitment to charitable causes and, embracing his deep appreciation for nature and mountains, vows to support nature-related projects through his musical success.
