Sebastian RätzelSebastian Rätzel


Sebastian Raetzel started his professional career in 2008 as the singer of the rock’n roll band THE BASEBALLS. Supported by their label WARNER MUSIC GERMANY, his band not only became one of the most successful German bands in recent years in no time at all, but also one of the biggest selling German artists abroad. Their debut album “Strike!” (2009) for example sold approx. one million copies worldwide, hit the top of the charts all over Europe and received several Gold and Platinum awards. Thanks to their follow-up records “Strings ’n’ Stripes” (2011), “Good Ol’ Christmas” (2012), “Game Day” (2014), “Hit me Baby” (2016) and “The Sun Sessions” (2017), they were able to continue the success. In the fall 2020
THE BASEBALLS will already release their seventh studio album “Hot Shots”.
Sebastian is also a solo artist. In 2019 SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT released his first solo album “Derselbe Himmel”, with all songs co-written by himself.

In October 2014 Sebastian signed a publishing deal with Germany’s biggest indie publisher, Budde Music. As a creative, versatile topline writer, he’s written for national and international acts in English as well as in German. In 2017 e.g. he co-wrote NUR MIT DIR, which was featured as the first single on the latest album of Europe’s most successful artist HELENE FISCHER. The album by now sold more than one million copies and received a Diamond award in Germany and 5 times Platinum in Austria.
Sebastian also wrote releases for other artists like ELLA ENDLICH, VINCENT GROSS, MAXIMILIAN ARLAND and of course THE BASEBALLS.
